New York, NY - Longtime Ying Yang Twins producer Michael "Mr. Collipark" Crooms has teamed with rapper/producer Wyclef Jean and his cousin Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis to executive produce the fifth Ying Yang Twins album 2 LIVE CREW to be released late November.
The Atlanta based rap duo, Ying Yang Twins’ (D-Roc and Kaine) forthcoming album, 2 LIVE CREW, is an ode to the Miami rap group of the same name. "We're gonna take 'em back [to] 'As Nasty As They Wanna Be'" D-Roc told Billboard, referring to 2 Live Crew's controversial 1989 album.
The album’s first single, “Dangerous” co-produced by Wyclef, Jerry Wonder & Mr. Collipark has be released to radio this week. “I wanted to do a Ying Yang record that takes the elements of where we come from and add lyric melody it. This will enable Ying Yang Twins to reach an audience that normally don’t listen to them,” foresees Mr. Collipark. A teaser single, “1st Booty On Duty” has already been serviced to clubs and mixshow format. The Mr. Collipark-produced “1st Booty on Duty” is a record about strip club DJs. A strip club DJ’s job is not only to play music, but to get onlookers to spend money on the girls. Kaine acts as the strip club dj on this song, talking on the microphone to the patrons in the club. "1st Booty On Duty" is the first girl to hit the stage when the club opens.
2 LIVE CREW is the follow-up to the Twins' 2005 platinum Collipark Music/TVT Records release United State of Atlanta (U.S.A.), which bowed at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 with over 200,000 units sold. The disc was the Twins second consecutive platinum album and spawned the Grammy-nominated single "Wait (The Whisper Song)," which peaked at No. 3 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
"Working with the Wyclef and Jerry Wonder has pushed Ying Yang Twins and our sound to whole another level,” states Mr. Collipark.
As a producer, Mr. Collipark has churned out hit singles for Bubba Sparxxx, Young Jeezy, David Banner, Twista and the Ying Yang Twins.
Wyclef Jean and Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis are also enjoying world wide chart success as producers of Shakira's worldwide chart hit "Hips Don't Lie," which also features Jean's vocals. The song has hit #1 in 14 countries, including the United States.
