A Beer Drinking, Hell Raising, Gravel Slinging Good Time is what you can expect at a Jawga Boyz show.
These Athens, GA boyz celebrate the redneck way of life through their dirty south beats and country twangstyle that puts the redneck rappers in a league of their own.
The group originally formed in 2003, and consist of founding members Derek Thrasher (D Thrash) and Deston Stephens, (Dez), during the LIVEshows, A.J. McIntyre (BoonDock), and Chuck Lambert (Collard Green)also help with the performance and visual appeal. “We wereinfluenced by the trailblazers of southern rap like Rehab, Outkast,and Bubba Sparxxx. Man, I remember when Bubba Sparxxx (also anAthen’s native) came out and everyone was blown away by hisoriginality and style and I thought to myself I could do that,”says D Thrash.
The guys also give props to the mega-stars of 90’scountry including Garth Brooks and Clint Black for giving them thedownhome inspiration to incorporate a sense of Southern pride intheir music. The Jawga Boyz are now a Youtube phenomenon with over 50million views on their jawgaboyz channel with videos for “ChillinIn The Backwoods”, “Rollin Like a Redneck,” “MudJug (DipIn My Lip),” and the fan favorite “Ridin High.”
