Biography

Out of upstate New York has come an inventive new group that has begun to make their mark on the music world. Gym Class Heroes is a hip-hop band that uses live instruments and musicians instead of looped samples and canned beats. The band has produced an original hip-hop sound fusing crisp guitar rhythms, deep melodic bass lines, head cracking beats, and conscious lyrics to create a sound that is truly their own. The group has appeared on MTV twice, by invitation, where MC Schleprok won a freestyle battle (on their flagship hip hop show Direct Effect) that landed him a cameo spot in Styles video for "Daddy Get That Cash" (Interscope/Ruff Ryders). In addition to playing small clubs to large festivals, Gym Class Heroes have opened up for RUN DMC, Jurassic 5, Fat Joe, Naughty By Nature, Nappy Roots, Cam'ron, Mobb Deep, Blackalicious and other prominent hip hop artists.
