Biography

Sometime in the late 1990s before the turn of the century, Stephen Harris met David Williams at a Boys & Girls Club in rural Athens, AL. While at the the time they were young boys just having fun rapping, both had made names for themselves separately. As word got around the small community center, the two were increasingly pressured to meet each other head on to determine who would be the one king. After all, there couldn’t be two kings. Could there?

Fast forward almost a decade later to 2007 and Stephen, now going by ST (a shortened version of his first name), and Yung Clova (who considered himself lucky to be alive after almost being aborted as a product of rape) had been rapping together as a group the entire time. After seeking out the Huntsville production duo Block Beattaz (who were coming off a regional buzz anchored by the success of T.I. assisted single “Lacs & Prices”), ST & Clova were gearing up to release their first real project together entitled Sumthin 2 Hate. A little over a year later, they followed it up in 2008 with Starshipz & Rocketz, a G-Side fan favorite that was named after a song from one of their idol rap groups, 8ball & MJG. Armed with a nice local and internet buzz due to the reception of S&R, the two small town rappers would name their next project Huntsville International as a response to the overwhelming love they were receiving online from fans all over the world. In 2009 when it dropped, G-Side fans praised it online to the point the group began to garner comparisons to iconic hip hop duos such as Outkast, UGK and Eightball & MJG.
