Introducing the worlds latest rap super trio GOOD BIZ aka GDBZ. This refreshing cross between the Black Eyed Peas meets The FUGEES meets EPMD breathes new life to the drug endued, pistol popping, fast food Hip-Hop of today. Saqualla or Quay Devon, KP & Bobbie Fine sound more like threes company but this crew of veteran emcees, producers & dancers/vocalist in one Ms. Devon have arrived to add some color to the canvas. Good Biz pays homage to their favorite kicks on the planet, the Adidas Originals with the smash "Mr. Original" featuring hip-hop veteran YZ who lends an incredible verse elaborating on the historical value of the Originals line so Adi-Das-trously! Then they defy gravity and lift us to another level with the Bee Gee’s influence “Nowhere” featuring hip-hop living legend Brother J of X-Clan. KP & Bobbie Fine deliver tales of hopeless life in the fast lane while Brother J brings it all together with a vivid “moral of the story” 16 bar banger. Both produced by Houston’s own The ARE (Track Masters) serve as a perfect intro to their incredible EP "Principle & Interest" produced exclusivley by The ARE and their debut album “Sound Investment” due to drop Summer 2010. The album features Good Biz produced tracks like “Braille” and “Whatchagondo” not only showcase their skillfulness as lyricist but also display their drum pad tapping talents as well. Amazing features from new comers like Mark Streetz on the hater proof “Guard Your Weight”, Risky Star on the Biggie influenced “Licorice” and AL One on the insane “2 Steps Ahead” are definite stand outs on the album. While veterans like Vursatyl of the Lifesavers and the underground king Bun B of UGK make GOOD BIZ’s Sound Investment instant classic material. Look out for their incredible EP “Checks & Balances” due to drop just before the album and exclusive ARE produced “The ARE Presents: GDBZ” to drop with the album as a limited edition giveaway with purchase of Sound Investment!
We are in the process of booking a gig at the Tonic Lounge, and are looking for the city's top bands to add to the evening's lineup. Can you hip me to the best metal/rock/punk bands in the city? Also, what are other cool, small venues (200 cap.) that we should consider?
