Before you begin to formulate Thoughts about NorthStarr (*aka* NS), a Christian Hip Hop music group, NorthStarr's sound will definitely be the break through group that popular radio stations will play in heavy rotation. The group is composed of 5 members: DTM, T-Dogg, Sam-Bam, E-roc, AV, ranging from 16-18 years old, each providing a very unique sound, reflective of their different talents. It's Hard to imagine a Hip Hop song without profanity, degrading women, violent and drug lyrics and still being the hottest Hip Hop group ever. B2K's Raz-B, reveals, "NS is definitely a Hip Hop group that will make waves in the industry. They don't have a preachy sound, they just have an upbeat, fun, and fresh message that all are going to gravitate to."
No newcomer to the streets, they were raised in the troubled towns of Compton and South Central in Los Angeles where fighting to live and be on the right side of the track is a constant battle. T-Dogg shares, "It was only our faith in God, that we've been able to avoid and escape the daily drive-bys, deadly fights, shoot-outs, and the temptations of going down the wrong path." They believe that being "in" doesn't mean that they have to compromise their beliefs. They are very popular in high school, and are trendsetters. DTM states, "We were looking for someone to follow, someone to lead us in the Hip Hop industry, but I believe if it takes us to be the leaders, with the help of God, we will be the leaders that we were looking for."
According to their Manager Linda Luna, "Everyone can expect hot music. Some might be turned off because they may hear the word "God or Jesus"
in some of their songs, and automatically think that it is not hip, but that couldn't be furthest from the truth. We have hot producers working with us such as Keith McMasters who has made hits for Chingy, Ludacris, and Boyz in Da Hood of Bad Boys South camp. Keith says "NorthStarr provides a fresh new, clean, positive, and fun sound that can be heard on the radio, in the clubs, and in the church". NS wants people to know that their music will be just as trendy as 50 cent and Jay-Z, but the lyrical content will just provide a powerful clean message.
NorthStarr is a contemporary, fresh and innovative Christian Hip Hop group that will provide a refreshing alternative to those who love the music and beats, but want more than that, want quality music all the way around. They are the alternative for teenagers and adults who want to make a difference in their worlds.
