Like so many stories of success in the past decade, Youtube, Facebook, other video hosting sites and the internet in general have been the foundation on which artists across all genres have created a buzz for themselves. Interestingly, the increased globalization has had the reverse effect on the hip hop community, creating more local and regional celebrities with fanbases so loyal that any given show will sell out without so much as a radio dj's shoutout, let alone spins. In 2009, two offspring of the then novel youtube era released their first collaborative effort , a single entitled "Clap Dem Thighs." With average results generated from past solo mixtape and single releases, the previously separate artists known as Slim Kidd and Eb Da Iceman, both hailing from North Miami Beach area, decided to consolidate what was rapidly becoming a solid partnership into the group, NMB (North Miami Beach) Stunnaz.
As the NMB Stunnaz, their first single, "Clap Dem Thighs," did exactly what it was meant to do: inspire hoards of women ranging from high school age to damn near retirement age to upload videos of them doing just that; clapping their thighs. Once typed into the youtube search bar, finding an official version of the "Clap Dem Thighs" might take hours given the seemingly endless list of fan made videos that have taken over the scrolling tab on the side. With the majority of the videos reaching an average of 200,000 plus views each on youtube alone, and the mainstream station, WEDR 99 Jamz giving spins, the NMB Stunnaz made touring their next order of business. No longer a mere local phenomena, the duo packed strip and nightclubs all over the south, from Alabama and North Carolina to Georgia and, of course, key cities all over Florida, such as Tallahassee, Jacksonville, and more.
It has been three years since the explosive success of "Clap Dem Thighs." On a mainstream artists' timeline, the song would already constitute as a throwback. But the fanbase hasn't let up. The single continues to generate fan video uploads and record spins as if the NMB Stunnaz had stopped there and walked away. But the duo has only revealed the tip of the iceberg when it comes to their future projects. Their blog postings and views have not slowed down one bit, graduating to 7 current postings on one of the most sought after video hosting sites on the net, Worldstarhiphop.com and racking up over 150,000 views in the past few months. In early 2011, the two teamed up with Miami based video production team, LPMG Films and have been systematically releasing videos to go with individual freestyle videos. EB Da Iceman's "Tony Montana" freestyle, The "Round Here" Slim Kidd freestyle, and the "No Hook" freestyle by Slim Kidd featuring Zoey Dollaz are just a few of the latest installments that have amassed over 150,000 views in the course of a few months."I'm So Live" held crowds over in Georgia when it was released in 2010, receiving record spins on some mainstream radio stations in Atlanta and "Up My Fie," their early 2011 release, rocked stages in Tallahassee, Florida, receiving high energy college crowd love in the sunshine state's capitol. However the duo is just starting to simmer. Their escalating momentum will bring them to their next mixtape, as of yet untitled, set to drop late fourth quarter of 2011 and will continue on into 2012, setting them up for more releases and more infectious dance singles that will rock crowds not only in Florida, for that matter, but the entire SouthEast and more. The youtube artist generation is rapidly becoming a passing wave, but for the NMB Stunnaz, their success stays rooted firmly in their talent for creating dance epidemics, ensuring a firm position in hip hop as the next anthem propelling hypemen duo from the sunshine state.
