Chicago, IL – Formed in 2011, the Bop Boyz are a complilation of producers, songwriters, and rappers that once began as a large group and slimmed down to its current four members, Scrills (a.k.a. “Smokey da Bear), Bonkers, Certified Flip, and Hosse. “We wanted to continue with our music, so we went our separate ways and the four of us started together in 2011.” It was then that they dropped their first album, and EP entitled Eating of the Same Table and which contained the band’s hit single “Get Fucked Up.” Their music sparked a movement, with over 24,000 streams from their fans, and they hopped on tour with notable performers such as Lil Wyte, Twisted Insane, Kutt Calhoun (Strange Music), and Young Bleed (No Limit), 36 Mafia and more.
Now, the Bop Boyz are surprising fans with their latest mixtape Fckyosleepgang which will make its debut come late September. Their single, which you’ll find on their mixtape, is “Grind or Die,” an anthem of “the struggle.” “The song is about every day. Trying to make it, and not letting your situation dictate your outcome,” the group explains, adding, “There’s a lot of pit holes you can fall into, but the song is about making it through. That’s the whole purpose.”
Influenced by the writing and production aspects of musicians like Dr. Dre, the group’s creative process is unique, relying on the internet to send creative ideas back and forth.
Their advice to other groups trying to make it in the music industry is to “tour as much as you can, because that’s the way the industry is set up now,” says Bonkers, emphasizing, “You have to be in front of them.”
