Field Mob Biography
While hip-hop prides itself on being the soundtrack to the streets, Field Mob does their best to represent the country. The duo of Boondox and Kalage hail from Albany, GA, a small town outside of Atlanta that is best-known as the birthplace of soul legend Ray Charles. The pair chose the name Field Mob to represent The Field, a small area of Albany where they grew up. The two met in high school after Boondox saw Kalage freestyling in the school courtyard. Boondox challenged him to a battle the next day, and afterwards they decided to become partners. The Mob landed a deal with a small independent record label and recorded their first single which caught the attention of MCA Records. MCA quickly signed them to a deal, and in 2000, they released their first album, 613: Ashy to Classy. Despite their age and lack of experience, 613: Ashy to Classy is a polished effort that features clever lyrics and solid production. The same can be said for From Tha Roota to Tha Toota, the 2002 follow-up that
showed the Georgia natives collaborating with Trick Daddy and moving closer to the Outkast-esque production work they hinted at on their debut. The pair of youngsters has shown they can compete with the best hip-hop has to offer, and they'll do it while wearing their country roots with pride.
