Bridge Is Laid
Raw Denim and Juk met at a local emcee cipher where Gainesville cats would come together to free style and build their emcee skills. After a few months of consistently attending the ciphers, Juk heard a demo that Raw D was featured on that he couldn't stop playing in his car and also found out that Raw D produced. So Juk called Raw one day to go check out some of his beats at his crib. While over there, they began experimenting vocally over some of the beats and an immediate chemistry was born. They decided by the end of that day, they were going to form a group and put out an album. They worked together on the album whenever they could get a minute between work and going to school and finished the album in July 2004, after only 4 months of choosing beats, lyrics, practicing together and recording an album that consisted of 20 songs. They put out a single to cause some hype for the CD and played some shows to promote the idea. Juk and Raw D wanted to make the CD perfect and kept re-mixing and mastering it until they found the right levels, and finally released their locally anticipated album. Although it was 7 months between the recording of the CD and it's actual release, they both said the extra time they put in to make sure it was the absolute pinnacle of quality in a product was worth it. They currently doing mad promotion and shows to make sure every one gets a chance to hear that real hip-hop again.
