Produced by D. Rich.
After alining themselves with Gee Roberson’s Interscope imprint, the Low End Professionals are ready to unleash the latest installment of their Don’t Feed Da Killaz mixtape series. For the first offering, Count and Moonie liberate the D. Rich-produced “X’s & O’s” which they have had in the stash long before Jeezy’s “How It Feel”. Consider this one a warning shot, as L.E.P. have a lot more music on the way.
Don’t Feed Da Killa, Vol. 4 drops later this year.
MMG and L.E.P. connect once again as Count and Moonie join Young Breed on the official remix of Breed’s “Make It Come Back”. This one’s pretty smooth and as expected, The Bogus Boys don’t disappoint.
Don’t Feed Da Killaz Vol. 4 coming soon.
FSD’s own Andrew Barber recently caught up with the Low End Professionals to chop it up for MTV2′s regional report on The Week In Jams. Count and Moonie talk about the independent grind, aligning themselves with Gee Roberson’s Interscope imprint and what they have planned for this year.
If you missed the clip when it aired this past Sunday on MTV2, you can check it out here (as the video above won’t play on any site but there’s). Don’t forget — L.E.P.’s Don’t Feed Da Killaz Vol. 4 is on the way.
Fresh off announcing their deal with Gee Roberson’s Blueprint label under the Interscope/Geffen umbrella, the L.E.P. Bogus Boys headed down to Miami to begin work on their Interscope debut with Kane Beatz. If you’re unfamiliar with Kane, he’s produced such monsters as “The Show Goes On” by Lupe, “Super Bass” by Nicki and “Bedrock” by Young Money. So yeah, it’s that serious.
Be sure to keep an open eye for the Bogus Boys Don’t Feed Da Killaz Vol. 4 due out this winter.

Interscope’s latest recruits deliver a new taste of music via Bigga Rankin’s WRNR Exclusives mixtape, which just impacted recently. L.E.P. and 808 Mafia? Yeah, this is tough.
Produced by Nascent
Miami’s own Jigg enlists Chi-Town cohorts, the L.E.P. Bogus Boys and Nascent, as well as Brooklynite PUSH! for “Clapped.” This joint will appear on Jigg’s forthcoming project, High Grade II, which is executive produced by DJ Folk and drops 1/1/13.
On Friday, Billboard reported that the L.E.P. Bogus Boys had inked a major label record deal with Gee Roberson’s new imprint on Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records called Blueprint. But while the article made headlines, we didn’t receive any confirmation from the Bogus Boys or Count and Moonie, so we weren’t sure if it was the real deal. However tonight the Bogus Boys have officially confirmed with FSD that the ink is dry, and they’re rolling with Blueprint. Congratulate these fellas when you see them. The list of Chicago signings continues…
We reached out to the president and CEO of Infared Music, Eric Alvarez, who spoke with FSD about the deal. We just got a short and sweet quote, but look for the official interview with the guys coming soon.
“We appreciate any and everyone that’s ever listened to our music, watched our videos and supported our cause. We’re here to open the door for Chicago music and show you what it’s really about, so we can change the misrepresentation of our city and how we’re portrayed to the world. There’s a wealth of positives and potential in our city and region. Everybody knows L.E.P. and Infared Music Group has been carrying the torch and we will continue to brand and grow right here in Chicago. Special shouts out to all the youngins doing it, and a very special shout out to the most promising artist Spenzo (@AintUSpenzo). 2013 it’s all of ours.”
Rumors have swirled for months that Count and Moonie had landed on a major label deal, with that label being Interscope, and today Billboard sort of confirmed that. While we don’t have official word from the Bogus Boys, or Infared Music, the article is stating that they’ve teamed up with powerhouse industry vet and Geffen Chairman, Gee Roberson, to be a part of his new label through Interscope/Geffen, Blueprint:
Geffen Records chairman Gee Roberson will transition to create and own a full service record company called Blueprint to be distributed by Interscope Geffen A&M, it was announced today by Interscope Geffen A&M chairman/CEO Jimmy Iovine and president/COO John Janick. The company describes the move as “consistent and in further consolidation of Roberson’s other highly successful entertainment interests including managerial and artist development company Blueprint Group,” of which he remains co-CEO.
New leadership for Geffen will be announced early next year, a spokesperson for the company told Billboard.biz.
Several artists on the Geffen roster are expected to join Roberson at the New York-based label, including rapper/producer Hit-Boy and Chicago hardcore rappers LEP Bogus Boys.
Very interesting and one hell of a power move for L.E.P. To read the full article, head to the Billboard site. We’re still waiting on confirmation from the Bogus Boys, so hold tight.
It’s no secret that Will Gates has a treasure trove of unreleased videos from some of Chicago’s finest, and today he’s dug up an unreleased freestyle from the L.E.P Bogus Boys own Count. This one is from 2004, and features Count live and direct in front of the now defunct Ickes. The footage might be eight years old, but Count was dope as ever all the way back then. Learn about it.
