Welcome to the City 1
Artists: BLUNT aka HOOD BOSS ST.Ides aka IKE DIRTY BLAHZAY aka Tha CONDUCTOR PRINCE NEV aka BLOCKLOCKA C-SHARP aka REVEREND MAC Location: We all and reside in Lansing, MI (517) Style of music: Hip hop BIOGRAPHY: BLUNT, IKE DIRTY and BLAHZAY have all known each other for a number of years and did our own individual things in music. Elbow City was originally founded in July of 2004 and consisted of three main members...PRINCE NEV, DOLO and BLAHZAY. At that time we had no studio just 3 minds and a keyboard. Over the next few months we began building a repertoire of tracks as well as accumulating additional members each with his own unique style and presence on the mic. BLUNT brings a rugged and raspy demeanor to the booth while C-SHARP aka REVEREND MAC slides in with that laid back smooth flow. The group grew and so did the studio...It all just started to fall into place. DOLO ended up moving down to Texas but Elbow City kept on the grind. The hit song Elbow City blazed at number 1 for 3 weeks on Certified Hood Radio with Alli Fox until it was retired and put into a regular rotation. We have also done radio interviews on Power 96.5 FM with Alli Fox as well as on Impact 88.9 FM with DJ Rad One. Other smash hits include LIFE IS HARD, MOM AND POPS, and HOOD BOSS. In conjunction with the radio we also receive air play at numerous night clubs. Elbow City has up coming shows in Lansing at the TEMPLE CLUB, in ANN ARBOR, MI at THE PLANET UNIVERSITY, and in DETROIT, MI with more to be announced. We are fully independent, and have been recently introduced to the mainstream, and have already created a buzz in the midwest. Look for the album Elbow City 'Welcome to the City' on 05/17/05.
