Boys From the Bottom


As mainstays of the 1980s West Palm Beach Bass music scene, Danny D and DJ Wiz were two young men aspiring in the Rap game in 1987 who failed to find notoriety until they joined forces in 1988. Prior to Boys, Wiz worked with Jock D and Chocolate Star Records, and Danny D worked with Dynamix II before releasing a single on Beware Records with the help of Kooley C. Danny was a student at the Ft. Lauderdale School of the Arts where he took a recording class, recording with engineer/keyboard player Steve Tempo. Read more on Last.fm
As mainstays of the 1980s West Palm Beach Bass music scene, Danny D and DJ Wiz were two young men aspiring in the Rap game in 1987 who failed to find notoriety until they joined forces in 1988. Prior to Boys, Wiz worked with Jock D and Chocolate Star Records, and Danny D worked with Dynamix II before releasing a single on Beware Records with the help of Kooley C. Danny was a student at the Ft. Lauderdale School of the Arts where he took a recording class, recording with engineer/keyboard player Steve Tempo. There, Steve and the duo recorded "Boom I Got Your Girlfriend" in 1989, which caught the attention of Beware Records distributor, Dave Williams.

Dave owned the West Coast label "Heatwave", and all three men signed deals with the label. In turn, Heatwave licensed the song to Atlantic Records, creating a national club hit. Danny and Wiz signed a single deal, whereas Steve Tempo signed a more binding contract. As a result, Steve no longer worked with them as they signed to Hot Productions, releasing a full length in 1990. After finding stage shows lackluster, Danny recruited Tuggie Rock, a West Palm Beach artist who briefly worked with former Beware/4-Sight Records artist KJ. Tuggie changed his name to Brain Damage, became the third official member of Boys, and they released a second album (also giving Brain Damage a solo career with Hot). As Brain Damage's solo career got underway, the returned as a duo releasing another album billed to Danny D and DJ Wiz before Hot Productions repackaged older material as another Boys album, winding down their career. Wiz and Brain Damage temporarily retired from the music industry as Danny took on role of producer for the legendary Jam Pony Express DJ crew, as well as producing for So-So Def Records while Lil Jon worked as A&R man before beginning his solo career.
