Bio

From local dance crew to global phenomenon, the swift and storied rise of LA-based hip hop group, The Rangers, reads like a modern day Knute Rockne tale with YouTube playing the role of the proverbial "bootstraps" by which Julian, Day Day, and Langston would pull themselves up.

Originally formed as a dance group known as the Go Go Power Rangers the boys would gather together after school to film themselves dancing in a new style of movement called "Jerking". Their self-filmed and edited dance clips quickly became viral on sites like YouTube and MySpace, and as the Jerkin' sensation grew in popularity so did The Rangers - creating videos that would attract millions of viewers from around the globe. The music industry took notice of The Rangers and agents lined up to cast them as featured dancers in videos alongside some of the biggest names in the industry including Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, and Sean Kingston.

Having a vision for themselves that dance alone could not contain, their attention turned to music. Instead of using other artist's material as the soundtrack to their videos they began creating and using their own. They found that their exponentially growing dance fan base was just as receptive to The Rangers as music artists and a new career path was formed. Their independent release "Jerkin' is a Habit, Vol. 01" claimed a spot among the top 20 album downloads in iTunes’ Hip Hop/Rap category during it’s first week in release and is still considered a classic among Jerk enthusiasts. Eventually they would catch the eye of multi-talented superstar Nick Cannon who signed The Rangers to his company, Ncredible Entertainment.

The official release of the video “Swimmin’” by Nick Cannon featuring The Rangers and Roscoe Dash marked their introduction into national mainstream media play receiving air time on BET’s popular video program 106 & Park where they recently made a guest appearance to debut the video. They followed that up with their own single, "Pretty Girls Shake It" which spent several weeks on BET's 106 & Park as a Top 10 requested video.

Next on the agenda for The Rangers was the official release of their single “Tip” in late 2012. Produced by and featuring hip hop production icon Swizz Beatz, the uptempo dance track with a bass heavy rhythm also served as the lead single for their upcoming feature film, "Cliques". The raunchy high school comedy is set around The Rangers as the school's most popular dance clique as they navigate through a hectic day of sexual advances, gang violence, and drug experimentation. Scheduled for release in Fall 2013 through Lionsgate Films the all-star cast includes Kevin Hart, George Lopez, Mike Epps, Katt Williams, Amber Rose, and many more.

In 2012 The Rangers left Ncredible Entertainment in order to pursue a more mature sound and explore different musical styles. They signed on with The Ambassadors, a production team headed by Lamar Van Sciver, a multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer. The collaboration has produced a sound they believe will usher in a new era for the trio - satisfying their core fans while attracting a new fan base at the same time. Never settled with only doing one thing at a time, additional projects in development for The Rangers include a live performance pay-per-view release, scripted webisodes, and a co-branded line of clothing and accessories. As The Rangers often like to say, “This is more than music, it’s a movement.”
