“The fans have been asking for this for a while. It was just the right time for us to do this. We’ve been in the studio for a few months and the songs we’ve worked on are good. You can’t hide good music, we just have to let it out” says Terry Tha Rapman, winner of the Best Rap Single Headies 2010.
Pherowshuz who doubles as a producer on the B.A.N.S project says that the new single will set them apart from the competition. “We’ve been quiet for a while. The project we are about to push will show how unique we are. We’ve written the best rhymes for years. Now we want to show the whole world that we can make records and be totally diverse. We don’t want to be pigeon-holed” states Phero. Pherowshuz produced Terry Tha Rapman’s single ‘Sample’ in 2009.
“You’ve heard Maybach Music,YMCMB and G.O.O.D Music. You are now about to witness what B.A.N.S is going to do. It’s not a game anymore. ‘Sexy Lady’ is just a teaser; you might even call it a trailer. When you get the whole thing you will be amazed at what we’ve been doing” says OD who won the 2007 Next Rated Headies category.
