About Shop Boyz
Even for those with an abiding ambivalence for rock 'n" roll music, the allure of the rock star lifestyle is undeniable. In 2007, overnight sensation Shop Boyz captured a little of that magic with their breakthrough single "Party like a Rock Star." You can find rappers Meany, Fat and Sheed catching a tan with Marilyn Manson, or tripping with the Osbournes. But, like all good rappers, they're also in the "spot" with "hoes" and "fine dimes" who "look like Pamela" and won't "let my thang go." It's as if the ATL rappers have distilled the best of both worlds, hip-hop and rock, and regurgitated it for a song that's destined to be a very popular ringtone. The subsequent debut, Rockstar Mentality, rocks every bit as hard as you'd want.
