Da Backwudz Biography
Last updated: 06/09/2012 12:00:00 PM
With a mesh of hip hop, jazz, rock and soul, Da Backwudz are proving the south has more to offer than simple snap records and strip club crunk anthems. Their first single "You Gonna Luv Me," with a clever sped up sample of Jennifer Holliday's "And I Am Telling You," exhibits cousins Big Marc and Sho-Nuff's quick wit and cunning wordplay. The single was one of last year's hottest records and the success of the single landed them on MTV's Sucka Free Concert series alongside Young Gunz, Lil Scrappy, Juelz Santana, Memphis Bleek, Slim Thug and Doug E. Fresh.
In preparation for their March 21st release, Da Backwudz have released a whimsical, yet crunk 2nd single "I Don't Like the Look of It," the Oompa song. A brilliant work derived from the popular Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie characters. The song is already heating up at national radio and the Fat Cats directed video recently debuted on BET's 106 & Park.
Wood Work features guest appearances by Nas, Slim Thug, Big Gipp, George Clinton, Jermaine Dupri and Sleepy Brown.
