Play*N*Skillz Celebrate Nationwide Hit Single, Ink New Label Deal

Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Dallas, TX -- Cashing in on the heat surrounding their Nationwide hit single "Ridin" (currently #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart), from Chamillionaire's Platinum Universal debut "The Sound of Revenge", Dallas duo Play*N*Skillz have much on the horizon, both as artists and in their first career choice, producers. They are featured in the MTV Films/Paramount movie "All You've Got", which is currently airing on MTV. The ink is barely dry on their Asylum Records label deal and the guys have been locked in the studio preparing for their Fall 2006 release "The Titanic" on that label, as well as producing tracks for a choice list of artists' upcoming 2006 projects (Natalie, Big Tuck, Frankie J, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Slim Thug, Slim from 112, Memphis Bleek, Chamillionaire, Lil Flip, Bun B and his group Middle Fingaz, Rob G). Known for their innate ability to give radio hits (Freaks, Ridin', Come Home With Me, Latinos Stand Up), Play*N*Skillz are currently on everyone's hot list for that elusive album heat and they have never been happier.

They are so happy in fact, that they recently decided to purchase theor own Dallas nightclub and are preparing for its star-studded grand opening which they anticipate for late June. Fans of the duo will be able to enjoy their presence at Club G4, which they named after their music company, at weekly special events and label-hosted parties.

Using their ear for talent, Play*N*Skillz have also taken R&B artist Reyez under their wing and have locked a deal for him with Latium/Universal for his upcoming debut album. That talent is only too evident by the list of artists they have already collaborated with on various projects; Akon, Mannie Fresh, 36 Mafia and a host of others.

After only three short years on the music scene, Play*N*Skillz are poised and ready to take their rightful place in the top echelons of the rap world. From their origins rocking clubs in their hometown Dallas, Texas, to producing for some of rap's heaviest hitters, Play*N*Skillz are ready to show what they've really got. Following the footsteps of successful rapper/producers such as Dr Dre, Kanye West, Timbaland and 36 Mafia, Play*N*Skillz are currently changing the face of hip hop by bringing a new sound and a new ethnicity to the game. Their sound incorporates their ties to both the Latino and the Southern cultures in equal, but impossible-to-ignore parts. The path has just begun for Play*N*Skillz and they hope to follow in the footsteps of Southern legends Scarface, UGK, DJ Screw and The D.O.C., although they are equally determined to continue to perfect their own unique style and rep for 'brown' people everywhere, to the fullest, along the way.
