Hey crabzinabarrel.com world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s your girl ReneeWoods and after seeing last night’s BET Awards I am more motivated than ever to get talented people outta the damn barrel. So back to business and spotlighting artists on crabzinabarrel.com and this week we would like to start off with rap duo THE W.E.A.K. The two members of this rap duo from DC are Super Hero Supreme and T Squared. They have a song called “17 again” that I really enjoy because honestly sometimes I wish I was 17 again. Those were the days when I aint have any responsibilities and most importantly NO credit card debt or school loans so the money I made was actually mine. - crabzinabarrel.wordpress.com


After getting a sneak listen to the highly anticipated mixtape from T.H.E. W.E.A.K. (They. Hate. Everyone. With. Education. And. Knowledge.) entitled T.H.E. W.E.A.K. State of Mind, I'm officially cashing in my single chips and am here to proclaim my renewed love affair...with music.

SWV said it best "I get so WEAK in the knees I can hardly speak."


My heart pitter-patters to the beat of their breakout single, 17 Again, and although I don't usually cover music here at Blush & Bashful, as with any new love, you can't help but shout about it and share it with the world!

I sat down recently with T Squared (Timothy Toy) and Super Hero Supreme (Jamal Lee) of T.H.E. W.E.A.K. for a special edition of Coco B. & The Boys,and after this interview, turned conversation, I have to admit...they've "knocked me off my feet."

The two MC's have captured my adoration with their insatiable desire to "let their music speak for itself." As discussed in my previous post, I'm not a fan of the ladies who love to scream about how "men ain't shit," but when it comes to music of late, that was my sentiment exactly. I'd all but given up on my musical romance. That is until my ears were blessed with T.H.E. W.E.AK. Determined to get their point across by any means necessary, the musical equivalent of my long sought after thug-gentleman, they promise to "step on your toes as they say excuse me."


With their debut album scheduled for release in Spring 2010 under the Snatch! Godwin Music Group, the fellas are already planning the release of their sophomore project as well, entitled 'The Fast Motion,' to be released in the Fall. T Squared and Super Hero Supreme will take us on a journey through relationships, a topic they believe "everyone can relate to." T.H.E. W.E.A.K. promise to give us a narrative glimpse into their own personal relationships and thoughts on women in general. T Squared elaborates, "No matter your background, whether it be a good relationships or a bad relationships or even if you're out here doing you...you're always dealing with the opposite sex."

Speaking of the opposite sex, I asked the fellas, "What's the best advice you have for the ladies who are looking to keep their man happy?"


T Squared: "Appreciate your man. Don't take advantage of him." And on a side note, "of course the sex...keep the sex right, be faithful and all that stuff."

Jamal was a little less forthcoming with the advice. Enjoying his solo status at the moment, he explained, "You can't ask a single person about relationships." He continued, "I can respect a relationship, but not really looking for one right now."

His hesitation landed Jamal in the hot seat, I probed further, "In that case, what advice do you have for the women out there who also aren't interested in relationships, looking to just kick it?"


Jamal: "There's got to be no sex, just straight off the top. Sex is going to lead to complications."

T Squared chimed in on behalf of the ladies out there who may be interested in a no-strings attached situation and explained that although he understands there are some women, and men, who aren't capable of having sex without feelings, it boils down to having an understanding.


Switching back to the music, I kept T.H.E. W.E.A.K. in the hot seat. With both men being DC natives, I had to ask how they felt about the recent rumblings coming out of the DMV from other artists such as Wale and Raheem Devaughn, who have both been very vocal about the lack of support they feel they're receiving from local radio stations. As a new group, I was curious if T Squared & Super had any concerns about receiving support for their own upcoming projects. Not leaving anything to chance, T.H.E. W.E.A.K. has taken the matter of radio support into their own hands, going to the station personally to ensure their music is heard and they've been successful. 17 Again has garnered both radio rotation and fan appreciation. They explain their concern, more so than radio support, is the public assumption that if your an artist out of DC you must be doing GO-GO. They want to be sure the public understands the DMV has much more to offer.

When it comes to offerings, T.H.E. W.E.A.K. is like finding out that perfect-on-paper man is the real deal! Lyrics that linger in your mind like the perfect first kiss, dance over beats so invigorating you'll swear you've never been in love like this before.

Bio

Washington D.C. has bred a prominent voice in its native born Hip-Hop group T.H.E.W.E.A.K., comprised of MC rappers T Squared and Super Hero Supreme. T.H.E.W.E.A.K, (They. Hate. Everyone. With. Education. And. Knowledge), is a group with a direct and refreshing lyrical message which strives to “fight crime via the microphone” and to restore balance in and outside the Hip-Hop community.

Super Hero Supreme, born Jamal Lee, grew up living in the inner city of DC for several years. As a young, wide-eyed child with dreams of ruling the world, Lee spent countless days and nights plotting, calculating, and pondering schemes of self-fulfillment. However, Lee realized the “very world in which he longed to rule had become rotten to the core”. He took it upon himself to “save the world one mind at a time,” our “Super Hero...Supreme”.

T Squared, born Timothy Toy, was born in Washington D.C. to a musical family; his parents knew he was an incredible talent. Toy seeks to use everything he encounters as a learning tool, and this is visibly reflected in his lyrics. His blunt demeanor is often comical and compelling, as Toy has once quoted, "my music is inspired by my environment whether it's the good times, the bad times, or the crazy times; I'll put it in a song." Toy’s purpose is to show the world that DC has something to offer in the hip-hop community.

T.H.E.W.E.A.K. have come to an exciting point in their career with the Snatch Godwin Music Group, as track “Seventeen Again” has been quickly grabbing massive amounts of attention. The duo reveals an eclectic range, with tracks such as “Stick Up” flaunting insatiable lyrical hooks and sweltering tracks such as “Hot Sex” rhythmically mesmerizing audiences. Their album “Fast Motion” portrays a journey from the beginning to end of a relationship, but keeps an uplifting feel throughout. Currently, the group is preparing a mix tape entitled “Heron Overdose,” a tribute album to Spoken word artist, Gil Scott-Heron. Sampling his musical work, this album echoes similar frustrations and jubilations as when the records were originally released.

T.H.E.W.E.A.K. create music that works towards the comprehension of Hip-Hop culture for both those who choose to accept it and those who struggle against it. Both T Squared and Super Hero Supreme believe that misconception and ignorance can turn to hate; it is from this hate that T.H.E.W.E.A.K. have taken their name. T.H.E.W.E.A.K can usually be caught prowling DC or Maryland streets looking for the “wicked and wack.”

The group has seen great response from the college/community radio world: CMJ top adds hip-hop charts ("17 Again"), peak #2 CMJ hip-hop charts
