Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz Sell Well

Atlanta-based

hip-hop group, Lil Jon & The

Eastside Boyz, represent their hood as they take

‘crunk’ nationwide selling nearly 30,000 copies

in their first week of release. Put Yo Hood Up, released

on May 22nd, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Independent

Albums Chart, #3 on Billboard’s Rap Albums Chart, and

#6 on Billboard’s R&B Albums Chart, placing in

the Top 50 on Billboard’s 200 Albums Chart.

“You know

that you’re on to something when everywhere you go,

people are hollering ‘Bia’Bia.’ Folks are

sticking their heads out at traffic lights just to yell

‘Bia Bia’ at me. We’re about to make everybody

rep for their hood on Put Yo Hood Up.”

TVT Records

has brought the group national recognition and is committed

to maintaining their stronghold throughout the South. “This

record is only beginning to explode nationally and we are

dedicated to seeing this record go platinum,” says

Neil Levine, Vice President of Marketing at TVT Records.

Driven in part

by the early support by BET’s “Rap City”

, “Uncut” and the radio success of hit single

“Bia’ Bia’” featuring Ludacris, Too

$hort, Big Kap, and Chyna Whyte, Put Yo Hood Up also features

M.O.P., Khudjo of Goodie Mob, Young Bloods, and 8 Ball &

MJG.

Atlanta’s

WHTA-FM (Hot 97.5) was the first to support the record followed

by Southern stations WHRK-FM (Memphis, TN) and WEUP-FM (Huntsville,

AL).
