"Rowdee Black Giant Usher Change"

Rowdee Black Giant Usher Change By Dallas Winston

Hip-hop music wears many faces, but one Philadelphia-based act intends to offer the genre a facelift on the house. The Rowdee Black Giants rap collective has slowly begun to garner accolades through intensive grassroots performances in Philadelphia and surrounding areas.

According to Jermaine “The Mutation of Greatness” Young, a lead rapper in the group, the group doesn’t intend to stick to hip-hop’s typical script.

“We expand the boundaries of hip-hop. It is a culture that shouldn't be scripted or made to be formulated,” Young said. “Artists must constantly push the envelope and not be afraid to force and promote change.”

The Average Man, Young’s co-lead rapper, and a 5-person full band comprise the remainder of the collective.

Listeners that want to know of the group can look at their logo to get all there is to know.

Young explains, “The RBG logo symbolizes what we are about. The Gamecock holding the ‘microphone-n-shovel’ device. It isn't a claim to fame, but it's what we're all about. We intend to: Wake u up, dig what we saying…”

Most recently, the RBG’s have continued their trek northward and have recently broken into New York. They are scheduled to play at Lilly's in New York on March 14 and return to Philly on April 11 at Pontiac.

Funk Wizard Snow, a DJ and legend to the Philly radio waves, recently reviewed a concert by the group and was pleased.

“If you can nod your head to a groove while emcees spit intelligent rhymes to it I call it hip-hop. When it's done the way ‘millennium message is done, I call it good hip-hop,” Show said.

"Live hip-hop. Hmm...."

It's nice to see a band that is influenced by The Roots, but refuses to be a carbon copy. This band is trying to take the live hip-hop band element to a different level, but mixing interesting production and intrumental techniques (slap bass and rock guitar on the chorus). Excellent vocals and interplay by the MCs. Funky tasteful background work by the backing band. Was that a slide guitar solo!!!?!? Sick, man, sick. This is an outstanding song. I wish major station would play more ballsy hip-hop like this.

"Lyrics were tight...."

This track was really busy. The Skill level was far above average. I need to listen to this track a few more times. Actually the music was very good. As it broke into the rock, I realized it was a live band. This makes this track even better. Most of us emcees only wish to spit over a track like this. It takes alot just to handle staying on point live. Good job.

Feeling a bit camera shy

We are strong family of loyal artists, tremendous in size, fantastic in show, breeding stronger minds and individuals through music, entertainment and education.
The logo depicts the aggressive ROWDEE BLACK GIANT holding a part microphone/ part shovel to symbolize that we intend to "wake people up, to dig what we are saying".

This unusual combination of individuals has been aligned to deliver a powerful message and gift to the populous of the entire planet: the ROWDEE BLACK GIANTS are here to “wake people up to dig what we are saying”.
