The Band is J.D. and O.L. a rap duo, that has been trying to get sign for years. And we feel like now is the time that we should be known we should be notice. Everybody needs to give J.D. and O.L. a chance and see what we about.
Why this name?
We chose the name J.D. and O.L. because we been called that name for years by family, and friends. So this is a very important part to us. I do know there Jurmaine Dupri and he calls him self J.D. for short. But I just kind of started to here that. I've been called J.D. since I can remember.
Do you play live?
Only me, J.D. , has played one time and it went ok. We both just need to get use to being on that stage, cuz the stage and studio are two different places. If you mess up in the studio u can fix up but if u f*** up on stage it's different. But besides that one time on stage I rapped infront friends and sh*** plenty of times.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think it has changed the industry alot in sells but I think the internet has helped underground people out alot. Because u can have somebody from China listen to your music, that is something that has never happened before. But at the same time u got millions of other people doing the same thing.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes I would, I would read the contract over but if it looks good i sign a contract in a heartbeat.
(BIO): J.D. & O.L. (who are brothers) were both born in Illnois, but lived most of there life in Memphis,TN. But now J.D. is back living in Illinois trying to get there music heard out there and O.L. is still in Memphis doing the same there. J.D. has been rapping since he was 15 and O.L. has been rapping since he was 13. J.D. & O.L. first mixtape was "B4 Alpha" which had some of the first songs they ever recorded. Their second mixtape was "B4 Alpha: Volume 2" which had some of their first songs with original beats. Their third and newest mixtape out is "B4 Alpha: Volume 3" which is there first mixtape with great studio quality and really shows how better they’ve become since there first mixtape "B4 Alpha". You can check out some of their new songs from "B4 Alpha: Volume 3" on their myspace. O.L. has also put out a solo cd "Killin’ Tha Competition" and is working on a new solo cd now. J.D. is working on his first solo cd "Quiet Boy Wit Somethin’ 2 Say" too. But J.D. & O.L. say they are a duo and are just doing solo cd’s to improve their skills. They consider themselves the best at what they do and will not stop till they get where they wanna be.
