One-on-One With Hollywood’s Finest!
Bringing that fire, that straight heat, JW, WoodBoi, and KP talk about their come-up in the game, the obstacles they face and their plan to TAKE OVER THE 954. Spitting serious flows over hot beats is nothing for these boys. It’s everyday for them. Managed by KP who is plotting a major movement in Broward county is not going to let anything or anyone stand in their way. With major moves being planned, WoodBoi and JW look to have pretty busy schedules. Coming from the streets of Hollywood Fla., WoodBoi and JW maybe what the music game has been waiting for!

WoodBoi: people said I was good at it
WoodBoi: so I kept doing it
JW KNIGHT: I just always had a passion for music
WoodBoi: and I always reflect back to the hood
Nine5Four: Ok... So why rap music??
WoodBoi: I grew around that
KP: it’s something that we are familiar with, grew up around, and could relate to
Nine5Four: I can feel that... So how did you all meet?

Nine5Four: WOW... Lol... That’s a big title to bear... The Best in Broward... Have you guys heard the other rappers in Broward??
KP: we get things done w/ no B.S. plus we look out for each other
Nine5Four: Yea work ethic is always a good deciding factor...
WoodBoi: ya we heard of them but we puttin' Broward on the map
KP: a lotta these people out here in Broward are just mixtape rappers
WoodBoi: like you can call Broward a government but we the presidents
KP: the thing I see in myself, JW, and WoodBoi is that we have longevity and presence to go a long way
KP: were original
WoodBoi: ya but really we trying to put Broward on the map
Nine5Four: Lol... I like that... So what do you guys bring to the table that separated you from the rest of
954??? I mean you have some major players in this area like Vickey, Perk, Absoloot, etc...
JW KNIGHT: I never heard of none of them.... but lyrically we on a whole different level and we trying to create a movement for Broward County
WoodBoi: Yup we hood music
Nine5Four: Ok... So I guess it is safe to say that you or we are all on the same level... Trying to show everyone what Broward County is all about...
WoodBoi: You a 100 percent on that 1
KP: But we different from the rest of 954 in how we market ourselves and perform at shows
Nine5Four: Really... So what is the difference between your marketing and everyone else’s??
KP: Ok let me tell u
KP: we don’t use people and kick them to the curb to get ahead, we work with a lot of people, show them love and have the mentality that if we work together we can get paid......
KP: we have mixtapes of course
WoodBoi: and our marketing its not only in Broward it’s throughout the whole Florida
Nine5Four: That’s the way good business people work so I can feel you on that...
KP: but we try to do individual hit singles instead of whole albums
JW KNIGHT: I agree hard work equals success and we really work hard by networking and working as a team
KP: its quality over quantity!
Nine5Four: Who would you say are your biggest influences in the rap game and why???
Nine5Four: Lol... I feel you playa... I will edit that for you...
JW KNIGHT: I like a lot... of artist but my favorite is Ludacris because of his creativity, originally, and versatility
WoodBoi: Our selves, Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, TI, etc they represent the hood
KP: for me as a manager "business wise" Master P and P Diddy, but as a rapper Jay Z and Tego Calderon
Nine5Four: Oh so you rap too KP??
KP: yes English and Spanish
Nine5Four: That’s what’s up... So you guys get to bring a unique feel to the game I like that...
KP: I do both
Nine5Four: So what is the next big step for you guys individually, as a movement, and as a company??
WoodBoi: not really because he’s just managing right now
KP: manage 2, but right now rapping is on hold 4 me till I get my money up and gain more experience in life
KP: well the next big step is....
KP: move as individual rappers like what swishahouse did w/ Slim Thug, M Jones, and Paul Wall
