Biography

Poison Clan was an early 90s South Floridian based rap group that focused mostly on post-N.W.A./Pre-Tupac Gangsta Rap, but also recorded uptempo Miami Bass songs for club exposure.

Initially, the group was comprised of rappers JT Money, and Debonaire (not to be confused with Miami Bass producer Claudio “Debonaire” Barrella). Discovered by 2 Live Crew’s DJ/producer Mr. Mixx at local a talent show, they quickly were signed to Luke Skyywalker Records and released their debut album “2 Low Life Muthas” produced by Mr. Mixx. The group briefly took the subtitle “Baby 2 Live Crew” as a way to market themselves. Upon release, they received most of their attention due to the Miami Bass club hit “Dance All Night”, a track that stylistically did not match the album’s thuggish content.

Debonaire left the group to spearhead his NYC Hip-Hop inspired act, “Home Team”. JT Money continued on as Poison Clan, releasing the album “Poisionous Mentality” in 1992. It was again the act’s Miami Bass single, “Shake Whatcha Mama Gave Ya”, that gained them the most attention during this time, thanks in part to production by Kenneth “Devastator” Terry. Unlike “Dance All Night”, this single was a major hit outside of the Southern club scene, and more importantly, became a blueprint for Miami Bass inspired acts for nearly the remainder of the decade.
