After performing in NYC at SOB’s Hot 97’s Who’s Next Showcase, the collective rap group out of Atlanta Two-9 paid a visit to Sway In The Morning and Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg to talk about their new mixtape and the meaning behind Two-9.
Two-9 consists of the two duo bands; FatKidsBrotha with brothers Johnny and Dave; and Retro Su$h! with fraternal brothers CEEJ and Jace. To complete the group of five is the solo artist and founder of Two-9 Curtis Williams.
The collective group’s name originates back to the year 2009 which is apparently when the five artists started clicking well together.

“We started off as just messing around. But then it stuck because it started showing potential,” said Williams. “It was the most natural thing. Everyone dropped out of school and quit their amazing jobs. We are just a group of best friends that can live their dream together.”
The artists are all influenced by music from Atlanta, but revealed that they are all inspired differently by the music. As a whole, Two-9 has released two mixtapes as well as individual projects.
The collective last released the project Two-9 FRVR back in 2012, and now just released their newest 13-song mixtape B4FRVR. The project features Rae Sremmurd, Wiz Khalifa, and Dolla Sign. The tape is a build up before their full album FRVR drops in 2015.
The collective group just recently released the music video earlier this month for the single “World Go Crazy” which comes off of their newest mixtape.
All of their music, both past and present, can be found on Two-9.com. However, to support Two-9, you can also buy their music on iTunes to show some support.
Tickets are still available to see Retro Su$h! perform on Saturday, February 28 at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami!
