The group I am consulting out of Houston, TMI BOYZ, just hit #1 on the Billboard Rap Singles Sales Chart and #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart. I am sooooooo excited for them! Woo hoo!!! Here's the press release from their publicist about it:

Whether grindin' for a reason or grindin' for a purpose, Houston's TMI Boyz grind is producing RESULTS!!!!!!! Their second single, Swervin' moved this week from it's entry point last week at #5 on the Billboard Hot Hip-Hop/R&B Singles Sales chart, to #1 this week as a result of the many Texas-based, FYE in-stores they have done this past 2 weeks, set up by Atlanta-based Face2Face and Rap Coalition's Wendy Day - a plan they are scheduled to follow nationwide through the end of October.

Swervin' is the follow-up single to their highly successful Mannie Fresh helmed I'm Fresh ft. Mannie Fresh, whose accompanying video made it all the way to BET's 106 & Park (New Joint of the Day), was produced by in-house production team Dirtbag.

Hailing from Galveston, TX and Houston's notorious South West, the group has made their presence felt at major events nationwide, most recently the 2nd Annual Ozone Awards in Miami where many top industry panelists made mention of the grind they have seen the guys put in. In fact, in the most recent issue of Ozone magazine, TMI Boyz are hailed by Florida's Bigga Rankin as the next artists to blow.

TMI Boyz may be independent but they are no strangers to what it takes to win. Only 2 short years into their career they caught the attention of industry veterans like Chris Crawford, Owner of TMI Entertainment, Mario Henchmen and most recently, Wendy Day of Rap Coalition, who is helming the release of their upcoming album Grindin' For A Purpose (Fall 2007.) The group has in fact already performed before thousands of people with internationally-known artists like T.I., Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Slim Thug and Juvenile.

TMI Boyz have a question for all those screaming about the current state of hip-hop..........If hip-hop is dead.....why am I makin' bread?????? Food for thought indeed.
