Customer Reviews

Hood Rock

The Shop Boyz are comprised of Fat, Meany, and Sheed. Fat and Meany are cousins, and Sheed is their best friend. They have come of with a very original idea. This idea is rap over a beat of rock music, which they refer to as "hood rock". This turns out very well most of the time, and has a very fresh, new feeling to it. Also, they have some moments with good lyrics, even though the majority is just average lyrics. Most people know the Shop Boyz because of their single Party Like a Rockstar, which is Number 2 on the Billboard Chart. Party Like A Rockstar is a great song, but the Shop Boyz used its content for too much of their album. Let's take a look at the title of their album, Rockstar Mentality. On the album, they have songs named Rockstar Mentality, Totally Dude, and My Car, all of which are topics on Party Like A Rockstar. By doing this, the Shop Boyz have layed the cement to be a one-hit wonder. Surprisingly, I do not predict that they will be a one-hit wonder. Their lyrics will improve, and they have thought of a wonderful idea in mixing rock music with rap. Additionally, some songs are actually pretty good and even if the lyrics are poor, the mixture of rock and rap is so refreshing, it compensates for the rest of the song. Although I do not recommend you buy the whole album, you should definitely check this album out, and buy the songs in my Top 5 Songs listing. Overall the album is very refreshing, and I expect the Shop Boyz to improve a lot. Top 5 Songs: 1)Party Like A Rockstar 2)Totally Dude 3)Rockstar Mentality 4)Rollin' 5)Baby Girl

The Endless Circle...

These songs are no more than a typical catchy hook and repetetive beat, ALL of them. While I'm very releived the main of the songs don't talk about dancing (and how to do it of course!) It makes truly NO difference as to how good the music is itself, and thats not good at all. All the songs are a little familiar to me, probably because I heard it for the last 2 or 3 years on the radio, same songs, different groups, ALL one-hit wonders. Don't get me wrong mixing genres was a progressive step for TODAY'S Hip-Hop, but to all the people who are amazed by it saying it's a "new genre" and "fresh and different" this has been done before, many times before with MUCH better groups like Linkin Park, N.E.R.D., and the Gorillaz. And to those Rockers out there, get over yourselves, saying Blacks and rock don't mix is racist and extremely ignorant seeing as how most modern sounds were influenced by the Black Jazz and Soul movements of the 1930's, do your homework idiots. I Used To Love H.E.R.

Every song is pretty cool so far

The shopboyz put together a pretty suprisin sound. it is different and pretty tight. I like it. ROCK ON!

Biography

Formed: Atlanta, GA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Classifying their sound as "hood rock," the Shop Boyz tried to separate themselves from the Atlanta crunk scene, but as their 2007 breakout single, "Party Like a Rockstar," showed, the trio fit right in with its heavy bass and drums complemented by pop savvy and edgy guitar riffs. Cousins Meany (Demetrius Hardin) and Fat (Richard Stevens) along with their best friend Sheed (Rasheed Hightower) all grew up on the streets of Bankhead, a western Atlanta neighborhood. They each worked on cars during the...
