Bio

Bracing for their arrival into the underground hip hop scene; Kids On Leashes lay their heads to rest in Dallas, TX.
With the release of their "Kids On Leashes- Chapter 1" press album; both of these devoted musicians and friends demand to be heard. With plans for a 2011 New Year full-length album release: Kids On Leashes will have plenty of artillery to reach their divisive listeners.
When Shawn DuBois and ANT (Anthony Lopez) first met back in grade school, they thought it was just another friendship. Hanging out after school and on the weekends they quickly picked up on each other’s interest.
Shortly after high school, Shawn soon realized his passion was not in pursuing a boxing career that he had dedicated himself to for the past six years. He started to focus entirely on music and trying to perfect his lyrical skills. Inspired by individuality Shawn soon developed a style of poetry and rap to create a truly original sound.
ANT had been meddling in the backpack B-boy scene since age 12. He started to break dance and DJ regularly in the coming years thrusting him towards electronica dance music in the night clubs while still under age. ANT looking for more than the routine house party and drum & bass scene he had become accustomed to and Shawn looking for someone to provide original beats and a custom sound built around his concepts and style of rhymes..they naturally began experimenting together in late 2005.
It was not long after this that the two started to gather some attention of soon to be fans noticing that..."....they didn't really feel like they belonged to any one genre..very experimental..".
The next several years would be nothing but developing and fine-tuning their styles; with some bumps along the way, as with anything.
It was not until mid-2009 that Shawn and ANT realized their true potential as artist and performers.
Kids On Leashes started to take form.
The group conveys thoughts on a number of personal conflicts and overall individual views and opinions. Set to showcase this are the newly recorded tracks, "R\C Car" and "Unleashed".
With plans to overwhelm their hometown city.."their thought provoking and brutally honest demeanor..." is sure to draw lovers of true hip-hop as well as attract a mass following of fans looking for something new in todays watered down Hip-Hop/Rap genre.
