Yeah, Boyz!

This just in from hip-hop head and New Yorker reader Butler Miller:

There's an article by Jake Halpern in the new issue of The New Yorker entitled "Selling the Beat: St. Louisís Trackboyz break a new act." The article isn't online, but the press release includes this quote:

"The atmosphere in St. Louis is now a little like that of Nashville in the nineteen-thirties, with the Grand Ole Opry, or of Detroit in the sixties, with Motown Records."

The Trackboyz, in case you didn't know, are the producers behind J-Kwon's "Tipsy," which is No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Tipsy is a hot club song... He got errbody singing... "Errbody in the club get tipsy." And The Trackboyz are on their way.... Believe Dat!! I knew they were hott back in 1997 when they produced, "Starfish & Coffee" for artist 40 Grand and later produced R&B single, "Hush". They'll be at the top sooner than later!!
