The Detroit super group formed in 2006 when two separate rap crews from the city’s Westside came together to combine their unique talents. The mayhem that followed is nothing short of legendary. –
Group members and then Oak Park High School students HBK, Payroll and Chaz Bling, made up the young upstart rap group Cashoutboyz. The Doughboyz, hailing from Southfield High School at the time consisted of Roc, Crispy Quis, Clay, Bmo Maine and Doughboy Dre.
In 2008 shortly after realizing the potential the group had, the boys recorded and released their first mix tape entitled “We Run the City“. The mix tape was nothing short of pure impact on a local level, forcing Detroit rap mainstays to take notice as well as solidifying a core fan base. The Cashout Doughboyz raw and uncut tales of street life and triumph would keep on coming with the following mix tape “We Run the City 2 – Floodzone“. While many rappers seemed content with making “hip pop” this group never once retreated from the honesty in the records they made.
The third effort “Chances Make Champions” would truly have this young group in charge of the D. Not only have the streets of this embattled but proud city crowned the team of rhyme sayers champions, but the internet has heralded the Cashout Doughboyz as a viral sensation. With a combined 2 million views on YouTube and still as independent as they were in 2006, it is truly a testament to their ever-growing fan base. In an industry oversaturated with bubblegum raps and auto-tuned hooks, the realness of the Cashout Doughboyz is unparalleled yet perfectly channeled into provocative music.
