LOEGz Drop New Single From Upcoming Debut Album #LeagueShit
Critical Praise for League Of Extraordinary Gz:
“The eight members of the group were a high-energy bunch, rapping with distinctive Texas twang and pogo dancing nonstop.” – The New York Times
“A goddamn typhoon onstage.” – Houston Press
“Eight immensely capable lyricists, all of whom bring a unique perspective, voice, and level of vigor to the stage” – Austin Chronicle cover story
“…what promises to be a defining group in Texas rap history: The League of Extraordinary G’z.”- DJ Booth
The League Of Extraordinary Gz released a new single today, premiered by AllHipHop in preparation of their upcoming album #LeagueShit. The track “Intercourse,” featuring an opening verse from Dallas native Slim Gravy of A.Dd+ and production from the League’s Reggie Coby, has a pretty straightforward message. “Just letting females know that I ain’t trying be in a relationship. I’m just trying to fuck” says Dowrong of the League. LOEGz rapper Greezo adds, “[Slim's] first line pretty much sums up the record: ‘Im’a tell you just like this / I just wanna fuck right quick!’”
Producer Reggie says although the skit at the end of the song was an afterthought, it fits in the track well. “There was a breakdown at the end of the beat that we weren’t sure what we were going to do with it. That’s when we came up with the skit with the phone call. It was a good add to the track.” #LeagueShit, which features Dead Prez, Devin the Dude, Statik Selektah, Grupo Fantasma, Jackie Chan and more, drops on October 15th. The LOEGz will also perform with Devin the Dude at Celebrities Sports Bar & Grill in Huntsville, AL, on September 28th.

League Of Extraordinary Gz Background:
When Austin, Texas, reality rap collective League of Extraordinary Gz recorded “We Gone Make It” in spring 2010, Octavis “Esbe Da 6th Street Bully” Berry stepped in the recording booth and yelled two words: “League Shit!”. Three years later, it has become an emphatic anthem, brand and title. The Bully’s vision formed in 2009 when his choice of eight members and three groups with their own budding local buzz – Dred Skott, Da COD and Southbound – sat in a driveway plotting a collaborative mixtape. In 2010 they debuted locally, played the South by Southwest Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and were featured on MTV Jams’ Texas All-Star Edition. In 2011 they rocked over 60 shows, including a West Coast tour with Jackie Chain for their Concealed Weapons 3 mixtape, and a national tour with Dead Prez. Then, in October 2011, The Bully passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism. As 2011 ended, the LOEGz were named one of Sonicbids’ Top 5 Hip Hop acts. They released The Plug EP in December. All of this came from a collective effort by three groups in three years via the foresight of a now-absent leader. All anticipation, questions or doubt after a few spins of The Plug EP will be quenched with their debut album #LeagueShit. Clearly rooted in traditional Hip Hop, #LeagueShit includes stout musicality and wildly free speech featuring Dead Prez, Bavu Blakes, Grupo Fantasma, and Slim Gravy of A.Dd+.
