PHIFTY-50 is currently finishing the recording and production of the new album, Grind or Shine at the renown Hinge Recording Studio owned by Craig Bauer of Chicago. Hinge served as Kanye's fortress of solitude in recent time, and through the years has always managed to maintain a presence. Tracks for Diddy, Lil' Kim, Wu-Tang Clan and Da Brat were also made there, and Bauer recently mixed Late Registration's "Addiction," "Roses," "Late" and "Heard 'Em Say." Other artist such as Twista, Bump J, and Lupe Fiasco of Atlantic records (Jay-Z is executive-producing Lupe's forthcoming LP) also record at Hinge. Look out for the PHIFTY-50 album in the first quarter of 2008.

Bio

PHIFTY-50 is more than just music. PHIFTY-50 is a lifestyle. Born and raised on the eastside of Jacksonville, Florida, the moniker chosen by group members RAY GOODY and LUE CHUE represent the 50-50 chance they had to make it out da hood by ending up either dead or in jail. In the midst of chaos, PHIFTY-50’s musical career began in the streets of Jacksonville hustling cds and mixtapes and has expanded to a national audience.

PHIFTY-50’s creative formula has been paying off for some time now, giving rise to a strong underground following in the southeast region. Through performing at the TJ’s DJ’s record pool and opening performances for national artist such as the T.I., T-PAIN, TRILLVILLE and FIELD MOB, the duo PHIFTY-50 has garnered a tremendous buzz in Florida and their hometown of Jacksonville.

And with the PHIFTY-50 movement gaining even more followers, their music will continue to resonate with the fans. Now, with the new album, Florida's dynamic duo is poised to take their underground status to another level.

The result is an album that contains plenty of PHIFTY-50’s southern slang, tempered with universal sounds that will move the crowd from Down South to the East Coast. Staying true to the uptempo style of the South, PHIFTY-50 will soon gain national exposure with the growing buzz of the hot street single “LET’EM HATE”, which will be featured on the new edition of NFL BLITZ by Midway Sports (the video game is targeted to sell between 2-5 million copies based on prior sales).

"ENDO" the first single, was produced by Melvin "M-Geezy" Goggins of DA BEAT CLUB. The single is currently in rotation at in clubs throughout the southeast. M-Geezy had produced for national artist like Mike Jones, Juvenile and Lil Boosie. "PRETTY LADY," another single from the album, was produced by Miami's BLACK MOB courtesy of Tone Galvin, one of the South's hottest producers, who has produced club hits such as Shut Up by Trick Daddy, Baddest Bitch by Trina, Ballin’ Boy by No Good, Oochie Pop by Mystikal, and impressive enough that he was recruited by T.I. for production on his current album "TI vs. TIP". "Pretty Lady” is one of the best examples of PHIFTY-50's combination of thug appeal and something laidback for the ladies. With a smooth baseline and guitar “PRETTY LADY” is the perfect radio song for cruising through the South with the top down while pulling over to spit game at one of Florida’s beautiful dime pieces.

RAY GOODY and LUE CHUE are looking to bring their combination of street appeal and commercial appeal to a wider audience. With tracks like “LET’S RIDE” that mixes hip-hop and rock resonating through the speakers like two twelves in the back of a chevy, it won’t be long until the rest of the hip-hop world is on the PHIFTY-50 bandwagon.

PHIFTY-50 has been among the hip-hop underground's anticipated stars for years and are set to explode on the scene in 2008 and expand the sound of southern hip-hop for a number of years to come, so stay tuned….
