BTA BOYZ (Yungsta***Chuck Nasty***Bee Dee) Yungsta: 'That's town Slang for doing your thing,' says Shaun Mante a.k.a. Yungsta, one-third of the Oakland, California based group BTA Boyz, when asked how they came up with the name which stands for Beatin They Azz. The nineteen year old MC with just over three years rapping experience, says he wants to bring something new to the game with his heavily Bay Area and regional slang influenced style, Yungsta wants to bring nationwide recognition to the Bay Area. The group's debut album, 'Town Material,' is described as their introduction. Yungsta continues to comment that all three of their styles will be separated so listeners can get a feel for everybody one by one. There will be no named features on the album, as to let the group's talent stand out on it's own, with the bulk of the production being handled by group member, Bee Dee. Some of the influences Yungsta sites for his inspiration include Bad N Fluenz, Too $hort, Jay-Z, and 2Pac. The confidence displayed when speaking with him shows how much they truly believe in this album and it's contents. Chuck Nasty: Charles Scott a.k.a. Chuck Nasty describes his rapping style as 'Gassed up, and heated up.' The difference in his music he says, is he wants to bring back quality music. 'I really put my heart in my music, I don't just put out anything,' he said continuing to describe his reasoning for being in the music industry. He decided he had to rap as soon as he got his first rap CD. The group BTA Boyz came together Chuck Nasty says when they were all attending school together, and found out that they shared the same interest in rapping. He describes their album, 'Town Material,' with energetic Bay Area slang. 'We heated, gassin' on folks all day, from start to finish.' He compares their material to old school Oakland group, Bad N Fluenz, saying they're just youngsters spitting. He says Bad N Fluenz is who made him want to rap, and their material is bringing it back to when people wanted to listen to music for the lyrical content. Chuck Nasty's sighting a want for longevity in the industry solidifies his love for what he is pursuing. He says eventually beyond music, he would like to have a clothing line, and a beverage drink line. It can be summed up in one statement, 'I want to be a music mogul. Be ready for us, we coming.' Bee Dee: Being careful not to be big-headed, David Reese a.k.a. Bee Dee says he wants to start his own style because there is a lot of trash coming out right now in music. Rapping since he was twelve years old, he says there is no fairy tales in his rhymes, his subject matter is all either things he has done, or could do. 'I spit the truth,' he responds when asked what is unique about him, and why people should check for him. 'I can switch my style however anybody wants it, and still make it sound good. I'm original in my own style and voice.' Bee Dee, who as mentioned before handles a lot of the production for the group, says he got into making beats just joking around. He and his partner, Gino, accumulated a lot of beats and some of them ended up on the 'Town Material' album, keeping most of the project in house. Bee Dee's production brings versatility to the project, he says it's something everyone can feel. No song on the album will sound the same, we're bringing major gas, he says describing their BTA Boyz debut. He also says he's going to push it, and will not stop until he gets there. His hunger and drive to succeed are great to see in a currently stale time of music releases. With the 'Town Material' album under his belt, and his solo album already in the works, Bee Dee has one thing to say, 'I'm the best kept secret.'
