If you’ve already seen Too Hype Crew perform, then you know about their explosive stage performance and electric sound.
If you don’t know, now you know.
Band and MC’s
Leads Vocs, Keys
Too Hype Crew founder and MC, C-Note, a.k.a. “Cords”, was well on his way to a life-rotting corporate existence when he got the old school bug. Now he spends his days on stage trying to burn off all the Colt 45 and Boone’s Farm he drinks at shows.
Mouth Turntables, Keys, Lead Vocs, Percussion
Patrick, a.k.a. “P.Tugz”, is an accomplished freestylist and MC for THC. Coming in at 6’5″, he also towers over the Crew. Admittedly obsessed with Soul Train re-runs, P Tugz was once considered a class clown. Now look who’s clownin’.
Having played in several successful bands prior to joining THC including Common Ground, Bad Daddy, and Austin City Limits, Drummer Stevie D, a.k.a. “Woodsy Fresh”, is the keeper of the beat that maintains the controlled chaos.
DJ Shor “T”
Turntables, Keys, Vocs, Percussion
Holdin’ down the North Siiide, THC MC, DJ, keyboardist, and percussionist Tami, a.k.a. DJ Shor “T”, may be vertically challenged, but she’s got mad skills. When she’s not dreaming of slam dunks, she’s on stage tearin’ it up with some of the best spittin’ on two short legs.
Keys, Vocs, Percussion
Alex, a.k.a. “Elle Hoodz”, rocks the keyboards, vocals, guitar, and bass. This sweet, animal loving, coffee guzzling, studious, multi-instrumentalist may seem nice but, wait – never mind, she really is nice.
Guitar, Bass, Sax, Vocs
Mel, a.k.a. “Cornbread”, covers a lot of ground – on and off the THC clock. Along with his THC duties, he has been the guitarist on Empire for three seasons, he teaches guitar during the day and runs an open mic night in Chicago every week.
Bass, Guitar, Vocs
Jordan, aka “j dizzy”, lays down sick bass that’s seriously out of this world (oh yeah, he’s an alien!). After touring with punk bands for years, his spunky, funky style is perfect for the THC crew. This blunt smokin’, whiskey drinkin’, bass thumpin’ bad boy has a soft side too. Especially when it comes kittens and puppies (but don’t tell anyone).
Dancer, Rapper, Photog, Goodwill Ambassador
David, a.k.a. “Da Legend”, is a trained professional dancer who has become a jack of all trades for THC. From being in the crowd taking pictures to rapping to break dancing, he is a THC party starter for realz.
Jeshka, a.k.a. “Juicebox”, is the leader of the THC Fly Girls. Ladies, go ahead and get mad – Juicebox is one of those who can eat and drink anything with no consequences. Body rockin’, feet flyin’, she’s the perfect combination of smart, silly, and fly.
If Yvonne, a.k.a. “Hot Wheelz”, looks familiar, it might be because she delivered yo baby! An O.B. nurse by day and gym rat by night, Hot Wheelz is a rock hard dancing machine who is not afraid of a 4AM club or that round of shots.
Jen, a.k.a. “Lemond Drop”, is a furrealz ballerina, dance instructor, yoga instructor, and all-around kind soul. When she’s not on stage, she’s out breakin’ hearts and breakin’ bread with her childhood buddy Juicebox. Namaste.
KitKat, our resident party starter originally from Indiana is no stranger to the stage. Been in THC since 2014 & dances for multiple kick-ass professional dance companies. Talents ranging from fly girl to breakdancing. KitKat can throw down. If you want to get on her good side, buy her a shot and talk about reggae. Break me off a piece of THAT!
Kristen, a.k.a. “Backstop”, may have majored in dance at Michigan University, but she got her masters in lighting up the THC stage. Why Backstop? Because nuttin’ gets past dat booty!
California girl turned THC Fly Girl, Porscha, a.k.a. “High-Top”, enjoys dancing more than anything. High-Top’s got that “The party starts right HERE!” vibe about her that let’s people know what’s about to go down. Fierce, fly and compact, High-Top packs a punch!
Straight from the GI, Gary Indiana, Karielle, a.k.a. “Tootsie-Pop”, came up in the same city that gave us the Jackson Family. Throw her some classic Hip Hop, R&B, and a bottle of Henny and she straight (whoops). Working with contemporary dance companies, teaching kids, and busting out commercials helps bring her unique style to another level. Stand back and watch that Tootsie POP!
Bella, a.k.a. Redhot, is a smokeshow who moved her fly self to L.A. in 2017 to make it big but THC still flies her back for shows. Red Hot answers the question, “What happens when you raise a girl proper in Geneva, IL but also gives her looks, smarts and crazy talent?”
You may have seen THC Fly Girl Candis, a.k.a. “U.F.O.”, dancing in a Twista video, or teaching pole fitness, but if you want to take a class now, you’ll have to go to “So-Cal”, where she and three other THC Fly Girls defected! But that doesn’t stop THC from flying her in for shows!
Extremely Worthless Posse
Too Hype Crew shows regularly feature a table full of O.G’s on stage whose only contribution to the show is to take up space. Behold, THC’s Extremely Worthless Posse.
You’ll find posse members like “Baby Huey”, ”Sho Nuff”, ”GPS”, and “CapNCrunch” hanging around at shows, freeloading and drinking 40’s. Please don’t feed the animals.
