A couple years ago, my boy introduced me to some crazy cats that played a little rock and roll. Well, they also rapped and sang. You could say they busted genres like Miami used to bust speakers. I know what you're saying. "Rap-rock is so '99." Nah, these cats are the real deal. These cats go by the name of Heavy Mojo.
Heavy Mojo is primed to hit the big time. Why is that?
"Heavy Mojo has been compared to Gym Class Heroes and was discovered by Steve Rifkind, the mastermind behind such groundbreaking artists as Akon, Wu-Tang Clan and Big Pun. Following their win at the Global Battle of the Bands in 2006, they signed with SRC.
Their upcoming LP release, Blow Out The Sound, produced by Billy Hume ("Party Like A Rock Star") is set to be released in late 2008, but you can grab their Choice Cuts EP now from iTunes which contains 3 songs for .99$."
Heavy Mojo definitely has the goods. I shot a concert film for them in '05 and they did some major damage. At the end of the night, I could definitely say that the sound was blown out. Check out their upcoming concert dates. They're currently on tour with Rehab.
