Biography

The Lost Boyz are a Hip Hop group from South Jamaica, Queens, New York. The original group members were lead MC Mr. Cheeks, backup MC and hypeman Freaky Tah, DJ Spigg Nice and Pretty Lou.

In 1995, the group released their debut single “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Shameless”, charting on the Billboard Hot 100. The release landed them a record deal with Uptown Records. The group contributed a single to the Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood soundtrack, titled “Renee”. The song became a major hit, breaking into the Top 40 on the Hot 100 chart. The single also reached Gold status in 1996. On June 4, 1996, they released their debut album Legal Drug Money. The work was highly acclaimed, and the album featured five Billboard Hot 100 hits, including their past singles “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Shameless”, “Renee”, as well as “Music Makes Me High”, “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz” and “Get Up”. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in late 1996. Their second album, Love, Peace & Nappiness, was released on June 17, 1997 on Uptown/Universal Records. It featured another Hot 100 hit single, “Me & My Crazy World”. One of the most famous songs on the album was the posse-cut “Beasts From The East”, featuring A+, Redman and Canibus. The album wasn’t as acclaimed as their debut, but fared well commercially, reaching Gold status in late 1997.

    Totally agree with the dude below. Legal Drug Money was blastin' from every angle here in Queens back when it first dropped. Album's a certified street classic.

    ooowwwiii! Love and miss them so much.. I remember when they came to Nairobi, Kenya (and they went to Dar, Tanzania too) for a concert in 1998.. it was huge because at that time, not many hip hop acts dared to come to Africa.. and they ROCKED. R.I.P. Freaky Tah :-(
