Shannon 'Daddy $have' Chavis and Khafre 'Fre' Chapman command the spot light with their energetic stage presence and engaging rap flava that has no rules and knows no boundaries. They are Big Dawg duo of the hip-hop group Da Minted. With their roots in Florida, the symbiotic rappers/songwriters spent their childhood growing up together in Gainesville, Florida with eventual plans to attend Florida A&M University in Tallahassee. It was after a playful freestyle session in a dorm room while attending FAMU in 1999 that the poetic lyricists began rapping together, which led to the formation of their hip-hop partnership. With a buzz around town about this dynamic duo and their tandem hip-hop harmonies and infectious rap lyrics, Da Minted has captured the interest of local DJ's and are quickly gaining airplay from radio stations in Tallahassee, Gainesville, St. Petersburg, FL. and Valdosta, Georgia. Along with invitations for live radio appearances, Da Minted has also been a featured guest on Tallahassee TV show 'Holla Back' and will be featured on UPN's Off Glass this summer. The Tallahassee based duo performs regularly, in both Florida and Georgia and is currently promoting in the south east region. Among their many venues, Da Minted has co-billed with rap artists: Lil Wayne Thrill da Playa Big Gip Jackie O and Comedians Bro-man and Shawty.
