Detroit’s Stereo Boyz Build Via Underground Releases, Tours, & “Monkey Barz” Cipher
Detroit underground hip-hop crew the Stereo Boyz just dropped a new single/video (above) titled “RayBanz” with a vocal feature from Shoua Kue and production by Nick Speed (G-Unit) with scratches and cuts by DJ Los. “RayBanz” is the lead single off the upcoming album Carz, Clubz & Theaterz (the follow up to last year’s Live from the Ghettoblaster EP) from the Michigan duo that features the two MCs Mixo (aka Applauze Beetz) and Mic Audio (aka Perfect Hell) who for close to a decade pre-Stereo Boyz were part of another Detroit group called Rhyme Asylum. Wholeheartedly embracing the DIY hip-hop ethos the Stereo Boyz have traveled round the US and also over to Europe to do a series of underground shows – all the while slowly building their rep and fan-base. I met up with the pair a few months ago when they traveled by car from Detroit to New York City to do a series of shows including one at the Bowery Poetry Club and another in the park. That (informal) park set was one of their infamous Monkey Barz cipher sessions – a true traditional hip-hop event that they hold on a weekly basis back in their hometown. See the video below of their first 2012 Monkey Barz session. For the one-off NYC Monkey Barz session the visiting Stereo Boyz headed to Union Square on a balmy Saturday afternoon with their big white boombox in tow to provide beats, and there attracted a huge crowd – many of them also emcees who joined in the freestyle session.

3- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
- Viewed as the best at what we do, and have made the achievements that got people to view us as such. Living exactly how we dreamt of living, doing what we love to do, and that’s hip hop. Touring all over the world, growing our fanbase and accomplishing all our goals.
4- What makes Detroit / your area rap different from everybody else?
- We view it as midwest music, so we count our midwest neighbors in as well. Because there’s the sound of the south, west and east, so to us this is not Detroit music, it’s what we call a midwest sound. And in the midwest scene, unlike other areas where there might not be such a great diversity, you have a better chance at finding more different styles of music, because we are not afraid of making unique music here, we don’t care what everybody else thinks. …..

Stereo Boyz member Mixo has been asked by UCamm.com: “Why do you love Hip Hop”..
Here’s the answer:
“The year was 1993, i was a little boy and my dad was managing a few well known rap groups from Detroit. I always used to go down to the basement and listen to them record as a kid. Thats where it all started.
Soon after one of the artists handed me a mixtape that featured a bunch of artists, mainly from New York but also Detroit. “They reminisce over you” by Pete Rock and CL Smooth was the second track on it and I listened to the song for 5 days straight. I had never heard any music that sounded like that production wise, and they rapped so smooth, i loved it. I didn’t really know what was right or wrong in rap at the time, but that right there just sounded right to me.
In those 5 days i wrote the lyrics down, memorized them and then for 5 more days i rapped the song in school, non stop and got alot of attention for it. That’s when i fell in love with Hip Hop… Read the rest here: http://www.ucamm.com/#!__letters

DH: It has become rare to see Hip-Hop groups. Why do you decide to form Stereo Boyz?
SB: In our last group “Rhyme Asylum”, we had a clash of the many different personalities in the crew combined with a few tragic events. So we decided to get away from that for our creativity to flow…. (Read the full interview here)
