Detroit, MI. (Top40 Charts/ Fharm Music
Group) - After years of working on solo paths, the Bake Up Boyz came together with a singular mission: success. With four members and an impressive extended family, the Michigan MC's have been hard at work on their debut album, Fresh
Out Da Kitchen, which will be released in April 2008 on their own Fharm Music
Group in association with New York-based Phase One Communications and distribution via EMI. Their new single "Now I Can Do That" featuring Jim Jones
is climbing quickly up the charts in several regions, and the video is picking up speed on MTV.
Bake Up Boyz is comprised of four unique lyricists with a cohesive perspective on their movement. Bub, who often writes the catchy choruses for the group's songs, is the head of Fharm Music Group and the catalyst for bringing things together. His longtime friends Dirt, Loot 75 and Jino each bring a blend of business, artistic and social sensibilities to the table; and together the foursome creates a strong sound and impressive presentation of their music.
"We have a special chemistry," explains Bub. "We got a good recipe together. That's why they call us the Bake Up Boyz - we're all in the pot together. Everybody brings a different flavor." The group's new single "Now I Can Do That" features Michigan rap legend MC Breed, who is also signed with Fharm Music Group, and Diplomat superstar Jim Jones. Each verse on the song is equally matched as the MC's trade off with their intense flows.
Enlisting the expertise of their manager Billion, industry veteran RJ Rice, and Phase One Communications' team Steve Oaklander and Frank Babar, the Bake Up Boyz are on their way to releasing an explosive debut album. Thus far, features on the album include Jim Jones, Miami powerhouse Rick Ross, soul legends The Dramatics and R&B crooner Dwele. A 10-city tour with Jim Jones is currently in the works for early 2008, as the group prepares to promote the album aggressively and effectively.
In the midst of setting their plans in action, the group emphasizes that there are always things just as, if not more important than, business contracts. "Bake Up Boyz is a combination of good ghetto music, good street music, good reality music, ambitious people - family oriented and caring," says Loot 75. "That's what's really gonna make us get to the top, because we care about each other."
Phase One Communications is proud of the progress being made with Bake Up Boyz' project, even in the beginning stages. "We are excited about this project because it has been a long time since a solid group from the Midwest has been introduced into the market," explains Frank Babar of Phase One. "We couldn't have chosen a better partnership to undertake a project of this magnitude."
Steve Oaklander of Phase One echoes the sentiment. "These guys put together a real album. I truly believe the audience can relate to every song on this record. The Bake Up Boyz can have a career span of several albums, which is very rare."
