Getting into the music
On one of their songs titled “Mirrors” featuring Javier Blanco & Erik J had a very unique and soothing R&B sound with a hip-hop twist.

Another one of their songs called “Silver Pharaohs” featuring Fadeaway Jones & Black Lighter Moses was one of their harder songs that had a cool California sound to it with a dope hard beat. They described how they get their sound, “Our sound actually comes from however we’re feeling at that moment. The hardest thing for us to do is to pick a lane so we decided to just write and record how we feel, we get sent beats from different producers and in different genres, so we just let it naturally come out.”
5 Years from now
The duo shows there since of humor by describing how they will be 5 years from now “We see ourselves having 5 boats, 10 houses, a maybach, 2 lambos, 15 yachts, and a 26 bedroom house.” but they got back to reality by stating how they just really see themselves still grinding and having their own label and being the channel to pump the Carolina’s.
