Getting to that point hasn't been easy. From homelessness to gang violence to "size-ist" discrimination, the brothers have hustled and flowed their way from nothing to something.
The brothers are members of the PAWNEE Tribe. Shorter then everyone else, but to tall to be midgets. Their extreme faith in GOD is definitely an eye catcher, hence the name Crunk Natives with a motto they say, "Love GOD & Party."
Born 12-23-80 LiL Mike grew up a problem child, By the age of 10, the boy had already suffered more than most kids his age. Mike said he was abused, endured bouts of depression and threatened suicide. Being small and poor didn't help. but with the help of the heavenly Father Mike escape gang life and put all his time into dance like Michael Jackson & writing poetry. Gave him the courage to stand tall in the spotlight - despite being only about 4 feet 8 inches tall.
Mike says, "Christian Music helped with his life change. The Gospel Gangsters, King Shon, T-Bone and DC Talk was in my tape player all the time."
Mike realized he had a message to share, that could help other kids avoid gangs. He could show them that no matter how many obstacles you face, God can help you through them & that being a Christian aint so lame.
Born 1-14-86 Funny Bone meaning (Fully United New Nourished Young Brother Of Noble Essence) "My life has been relatively normal - no thugs or drama. I'm like exactly the amount of years younger than Mike to miss all of that stuff," Bone said. (5Years apart)
Bone was still a child when his older brother helped Bone use his talent for rapping & telling jokes on stage. Bone says, "the music business is pretty much their only job, besides weekends at Old Paris flea market in OKC, "405 Music."
While they wait for their big break to come along, the brothers are writing and recording as many songs as they can & performing all over the USA success is in thier grasp.
