Group member Lil' Fate said the group is ready
to explode on the scene after being on both of Ludacris' multi-platinum albums.
"We've been on both albums and we've been
with Ludacris everywhere he's been, so people have already been getting a DTP
vibe from the get-go. They just didn't know the faces with the voices. Now we're

The group's first single ", Growing Pains,"
will reflect on the group's childhood and early days. Scarface, rap vet and
head of Def Jam South, will appear on the song.
Ludacris told AllHipHop.com, "This is for
people who grew up in the 80's playing Super Mario and Nintendo riding Big Wheels
getting shags and tails in they head. It's time for a song like that because
nobody's really represented that era right there and we think its perfect timing
with that record."
The groups shot the video for "Growing Pains"
late last month in California.
