ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Were what you call a stock on the rise/ song by song build a whole enterprise\"

EARLY YEARS: Every generation throughout Hip-Hop\'s spectrum has spawned an elite duo, a duo that defies all odds. Two individuals representing one entity, an entity defined by brotherhood rather than a partnership. Like a breath of fresh air to the Hip-Hop community, the Bay Area\'s own Bash Bros (PISEAS & The L.E.F.T.) arrive to carry the torch. Armed with the freedom fighter spirit of PISEAS & complemented by the fiery flow of LEFTY, this team\'s combination of yin and yang is best described like a street fighter with a vicious knock out punch.

Piseas and Lefty would first cross paths on a south bay public transit route when Lefty transferred to the junior high where Piseas was attending. Unlike most stories of how people would meet and instantly connect; this was not the case. The duo openly admits to initially not caring for one another. Over time, the day in and day out routine of walking from the bus stop to school would soon bring about a bond that would undoubtedly stand the test of time. Eventually the two would be recording freestyle sessions on a karaoke machine and searching for beats. Consequently they negotiated a deal with the Long Beach native, producer extraordinaire, Style MISIA to solidify their entrance to the game. Together they formed the group New Moon and would follow the \"Fuck a demo\" tradition of the Bay; going from the 4-track to the block moving units hand-to-hand. New Moon found heavy rotation on college radio leading to appearances on the heavyweight DJ\'s Davey D\'s Friday Night Vibe (KPFA) & Kevvy Kev\'s The Drum (KZSU). Garnering a lot of attention in the Bay Area, New Moon\'s independently released vinyl debut DEMONSTRATION ran eight consecutive weeks on the Bay Area Hip-Hop coalition\'s top 25 play list. The record was also able pick up steam on Hip-Hop\'s international scene, however by the time the group\'s material was cracking foreign markets the units went out of print and the group was disbanded due to the need for individual growth.

PRESENT: During the summer of 2008 the Bash Bros. climbed the prestigious RapAttacklives.com & RapNetwork Record Charts to earn the #3 song in the country with “Rock the Spot” showing their prowess for making extremely viable music for hip hop heads across America. Presently with more than 15,000 units of Bash Bros catalog circulating from the streets to the Internet the name Bash Bros once again signifies a winning team as it did for those familiar with the Oakland A\'s home run tandem of the late 80\'s and early 90\'s. Piseas and Lefty launched their global campaign in 2005 with the release of the groundbreaking album entitled EVERYDAY. As an album EVERYDAY represents much more than just a musical experience, but serves as a soundtrack for those who define themselves through the everyday grind. EVERYDAY went on to move more than 5000 units & spawned two regional hits \"America\" & \"Summer rain\". Wasting no time at all the Bash Bros went right back to work in 2006 releasing the certified street banger 12 inch \"The Session\" feat. Planet Asia. Along with an avalanche of mixtape material that went on to tear shit up on both domestic & international airwaves & fresh off their 2006 college radio tour, the duo’s appearance on The Third Rail ( breakthruradio.com) hosted more than 2 million listeners and brought them to the public like never before. In 2007 Bash Bros dropped the indie favorite double disc album DIRTY WORK / A GOOD DAY TO DIE which received praise from both listeners & critics. The release led to a feature in Urb magzine\'s next 1000, a performance feature in Music Connection magazine, as well as a feature in Front2Back magazine in Europe. The first three singles(\"the Session\" feat Planet Asia, \"Comin thru\" & \"Bang that sh*t\" feat. 2mex) off the record continued to crack playlists worldwide & found their way on to staple hip hop sites such as hiphopdx, dubcnn, hiphopcertified as well as a show stealing performance on Internet broad casted tv vlaze.com(aka Music plus tv). Continuing to feed their propelling street buzz the Bash Bros geared up to drop the \"WORKAHOLICS\" mixtape with fellow west coast duo Afro Classics (Scarub of the Living Legends & Very) as well as the first single off the highly anticipated 2008 release MAIN EVENT entitled \"Rock the Spot\" feat. Sean Price, Big Pooh(Little Brother) & DJ Icewater. The new album, which features production from Style Misia & Villanova who have laced tracks for Chamillionaire, 50 cent, Devin the dude, Trina, & The Grouch is sure to redefine the standard of not only the Bash Bros movement but also the level of indie releases as a whole. Look for Bash Bros to hit the road hard in 2008 & stay productive to ensure that if don\'t respect nothing else you will respect the hustle!
