What It Do With LUE , back atcha’ this week with the talented hip-hop group, “Hard Hitta Boyz”! Why “Hard Hitta Boyz? It’s because their lyrics go hard!!!
The Hard Hitta Boyz is an American hip hop group that began in the lovely City of Rialto AT Eisenhower High School in 2004. The group consists of rappers “Willie Will”, “K.B.”, and “Kooda B”. In 2005, the group released their first street mix tape entitled “Hard Hitta Boyz Vol. 1”, which helped them gain exposure throughout the school and local neighborhoods.
Landing their first live performance at Club 12th Man located in Moreno Valley, the group performed their hit single “Hyphy” off the first street mix tape. Gaining quick popularity, things began to take off. They began doing more appearances on local internet radio stations and gigs all around Southern California. This talented group has performed with some of the best which include, “Compton Av”, “Joe Moses”, “New Boyz”, “Audio Push”, “Cali Swag District”, “Fabo” of D4L, “West Side Bugg”, and many more.
