PHIFTY-50® is the next underground southern act to take it to the next level and obtain commercial success in the music industry in 2008. Their sound is unique and it is only a matter of time before they kick down the doors and put Jacksonville, FL aka "Duval County" on the map!

Biography

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….

You See Me Coming Shorty,

Verse 1 (RAY GOODY)
I’m coming down riding candy paint and white walls
I’m flossing hard in the lane like a boss hog
I’m in the club getting buzzed drinking champagne
And all these bitches know my mutha fucking damn name
Goody bring them thangs out, show’em what the game bout
Do it for the whole south, the killas and they thugged out
Make a nigga lean back, hit’em with that clean gat
Get’em with that nina boy, make that nigga feel dat
What you know bout stop and go, what you know bout blowing dro’
What you know bout rims on the truck that shine so bright like mop and glo’
What you know bout shooting game, what you know bout moving cane
What you know bout boys in da hood, they of da chain orangutans
What you bout tucked and leaned, what you know bout riding so clean
What you know bout picky feigns, picking green and pinky rings
What you know bout living good, what you know bout in the hood
You pussy nigga, Let’em Hate, shit, I wish I would!

Chorus 2:

Verse 2 (LUE CHUE)
I’m riding old school vogues, I keep them bitches out they clothes
Big Mack, Big Stacks, Big Lacs, Big Sacs,
Good green, hood team, we can do the jelly thing
Let me see your belly ring so I can tap ya jelly thing
Head to toe I‘m very clean, we flip the script on triple beams
So IRS you can hate, but my taxes up to date
So relax on the hate and keep them cowards out my face
They gone hate so let’em hate and keep stuntin’ in they face
What you know bout countin’ stacks, what you know bout riding lacs
What you know bout wood on the dash, cd on blast, four twelves in the back
What you know bout a crib on the lake, what you know bout a pig on the take
What you know bout a pill and a drank, you gotta get that girl off da chain
What you bout pimping hoes, what you know bout designer clothes
What you know bout flying them hoes, work them toes, and get that dough
What you know bout flipping g’s, what you know bout overseas
Fuck boy, you can hate if you want to, I’ll make it hard for you to breath!

Verse 3 (Ray goody and Lue Chue)

Somebody get that boy, cause that boy getting drug
You see him, point him out, you see him, point him out
