Straight from Minneapolis, the hip Midwestern town that was home to Bob Dylan and Prince, the 10 member live hip-hop unit known as Leroy Smokes puts out records and draws sizeable crowds in the club scene. They also draw comparisons to prolific artists such as Outkast, Kanye West, The Roots and Black Eyed Peas. Having been selected in the top 10 out of a pool of over 7,000 bands, they appeared in a reality show on FUSE TV (Bodog One Million Dollar Band Battle). They are no strangers to accolades, winning an L.A. Music award for their 2006 release, 'Love Hustle Theater' (BEST RAP ALBUM). Leroy Smokes may have graced our television screens and produced countless head-bobbin studio tracks... But at the end of the day, they are still best known for high-energy live shows. If you haven't seen it, you are missing one of the most electric performances in hip-hop today.
