What to Expect
Expect to be wowed and amazed by this show stopping band. If you're looking for floss hop or bling rap this is not the band for you. No genre of music is safe. From the rawness of Lady Moet Beast, the viscous tongue of D.C. Ty The Monster, the smooth sounds of Mr. Irvan Scott, or the cool calm and collective creativity of Antonio The Prospect, the ears won't believe what the eyes just saw. The energy is electrifing! This is definitely different from any band you have ever heard from the nations capital. If thought there was no music scene in Washington, D.C. Get prepared to witness the crankage of the Cruddy Crankerz
