Playaz Circle is a rap duo in the Disturbing tha Peace family.
Photobucket
The duo was formed in 1997 by two childhood friends Tity Boi (Tauheed Epps) and Dolla Boy (Earl Conyers) in College Park, GA. They created the acronym Playaz which stands for Preparing Legal Assets for Years from A-Z. The duo put all their money together to release their independent album United We Stand, United We Fall. The album had features from Lil Fate, I-20 and other’s from the Disturbing tha Peace family. They were introduced to Ludacris by Lil Fate and soon became good friends as they all shared the same dream. Tity Boi (Tauheed Epps) played basketball at ASU (Alabama State University) in Montgomery, Alabama.

  • Tity Boi and Dolla Boy thank you for your time. Where are you guys right now? How are you feeling?In studio.

Feelin good, working on new project“Flight 360 The Take Off due in 2009.

  • How did you guys meet? What inspired you to get into the hip-hop game? How did your group begin? Was it always just you two?

We grew around each other during era when The Dungeon Family..Goodie Mob and Outkast were makin noise in southern hip hop.

  • How did you get hooked up with Ludacris and the disturbing the peace family? Who consists of this movement? Any new acts signed to the disturbing the peace?

We lived in College Park and Luda moved into our complex briefly. He heard our music andit was on from there.Duffle Boyz Ent is our new venture and we are developing new acts.

  • Duffle Bag Boy” really put ya’ll on the map. Were you prepared for everything that came with that albums success? Also how did you guys connect with Lil Wayne? What was it like working with him?

We worked very hard to get to this point.So we were prepared for everything that came with the success of Duffle Bag Boy.Wayne is a friend and we have collaborated with him on several songs. We sent him the song and told him we wanted him to sing the hook.He did his thing.

  • What is the significance of the name Playaz Circle? How did you come up with that name? What were some of the trials and tribulations you faced while trying to get things going?

Playaz Circle means Preparing Legal Assets from A to Z. It fit the times when we started rhyming.We faced the typical trials and tribulations growin up being in the streets, hustlin, jail, tryin to find our way. But we were able to overcome and take advantage of the opportunity provided by Ludacris and DTP.

  • I read that one of you used to ball? Do you still? Did you ever have dreams of making it big to the NBA?

Tiwochainz is the baller.I play from time to time to stay fit and in celebrity games.But always knew I wanted to rap.

  • What motivates Playaz Circle? Now that you’ve tasted success what are your ultimate goals?

Puttin out quality music motivates us.We have only touched the surface on where we are trying to go.We want to be the best group out.We have lots of hits people have not heard yet and more to say.

  • Many hip –hop artists have made the transition from musician to actor…do you see the same for your two at some point?

We are business men so at the end of the day we want to take advantage of all opportunities that present themselves.So you never know you may see us on the big screen one day.

  • Have you been to DC? Do you plan to come through?

Yeah, we kicked it in DC a few times.Definitely tryin to come back. DC/Baltimore area has showed us a lot of love.

  • Speaking of DC you know we got Barack coming into town soon. How did it make you feel when you saw he would be our next President? Where were you when you first heard?

We saw it on tv. It made us feel good.We have a project called Felons Count Too.We campaigned to get convicted felons registered to vote in the south.Did some rallys and all that.We both convicted felons.We registered and even voted for the first time. So we did our part.

  • What advice do you have for those who seek to follow in your footsteps?

Work hard and don’t give up.Keep makin progress until opportunity comes and be ready.

  • You guys have been great. I wish you nothing but success, peace and happiness. Thank you for your time. Stay blessed and stay up especially if you come to DC.
