Go head, call ‘em the new millenium Kriss Kross. Teen hipsters New Boyz are jerkin’ all over the map baby! If you aint hip to the term "Jerkin" hit up their first single You’re A Jerk on Youtube (with group member Legacy beating the synths like he’s the illegitimate son of Pharrell) and you’ll be in the company of 30 million other people. Tie Me Down is the latest single off Skinny Jeans And A Mic and at first glance most will pass these dudes off as another flash in the pan but with Ray-J on the hook and killer production, they can’t miss. Autotune has pretty much become a staple in urban music but it’s honestly a stylistic accent to this particular track. The story is pretty much guy likes girl, girl likes guy back, but guy likes many girls. You get the idea. Capitalizing on the hipster fashion of the moment with the neon '80s throwback gear…kids will instantly relate while older heads will be closet fans.
