Earlier this month, Chicago rap duo L.E.P. Bogus Boys were banned from performing in their hometown. In the time since, a number of clarifications and retractions have been issued by both the House of Blues and Chicago Police Department, and through it all, the L.E.P. posse was never once deterred from putting on for the Windy City.
Not that Chicago has lacked any Hip-Hop heat in the past, but L.E.P. Bogus Boys' most recent mixtape, Now Or Neva, officially put the duo on the city's map and forced the industry, along with their peers and vets, to take notice. For those that have been living under a rock, L.E.P. are sure to gain a new legion of fans once they hit the road with Drake for the second leg of his "Club Paradise Tour," which also features J. Cole, Waka Flocka, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, and French Montana.
Crew members Count and Moonie have earned every well-deserved co-sign under the sun recently and yet, they maintain the real, honest, and gritty music that got them attention in the first place.
AllHipHop.com spoke to the L.E.P. Bogus Boys about the House of Blues incident and their feelings toward the Chicago P.D. We also discussed the visual flair present in all of their videos, and the camaraderie they share with fellow Chicago MCs.
