Playaz Circle in Supply and Demand
By eSpire writer Shani Greene-Dowdell

Playaz Circle is a well-seasoned Atlanta-based group that has ignited a flame in the rap game that is spreading like wildfire. This week, I had the privilege of chatting it up with the duo - Titi Boi and Dolla Boy. Having teamed up with Disturbing tha Peace for their sophomore CD Supply and Demand they are recharged and on the grindstone.

Growing up in College Park in the 90's, Titi Boi and Dolla Boy's friendship began over a game of B-ball. Titi Boi recalls, "We were in gym back in the day, about to play ball when I was like 'Dolla let me roll with you…and from that day 'til now we've been down." When asked how their music will contribute to the southern legacy in rap, Dolla says with certainty, "We are from here...the south is home. We are going to bring the world to the Southside."

In 1997, the childhood friends put their money together to release their independent album United We Stand, United We Fall. The album had features from Lil' Fate, I-20 and other's from the Disturbing tha Peace family. They were introduced to Ludacris by Lil Fate and soon became good friends as they all shared the same dream.

As luck would have it Titi and Dolla suffered a few hard knocks (Dolla being incarcerated and Titi having been shot) and had to put their music careers on hold. When asked where they see PC in the next few years, Dolla sees great things on the horizon, "I want to see the Duffle Bag Boys record label opening up doors for other artists from our hood, the people that have been down with us for a long time." Titi adds, "When we make it big, we want to give others the same opportunity."

The PC not only plans to open doors for other artists, but they also feel strongly about giving back to the community. Whether it's sponsoring football teams, giving out Jerseys to the kids, or throwing neighborhood barbecues, being an active part of the community is important to Titi and Dolla.

When their single Duffle Bag Boys featuring Lil Wayne hit the airwaves all over America, some thought Lil Wayne wrote Titi and Dolla's lyrics, but Titi says, "We create all of our own music. As a matter of fact a lot of the time we don't write we just flow freestyle." Dolla assures that Supply and Demand will have something for everyone, "There are 360 degrees to Dolla so you can expect us to get it crunk, keep it real from the streets and at the same time have that 'rub your feet' music for the ladies." Titi confirms, "Creativity can't be categorized, but you can expect our music to have a comfortable feel."

Titi Boi and Dolla Boy are prepared to do their part to keep the eye on the south. Titi says, "While others come to Atlanta and on the first day they want to make it home. We are from here...the south is home. We are going to bring the world to the Southside and keep bringing the southern flava to living rooms across America. As proof that PC is serious about this claim, Titi shares, "The video for Duffle Bag Boys was shot in our hood, which has never been done before, so this is huge."

So just when does the Supply and Demand drop? Titi and Dolla assure fans it is coming soon.
