Billboard Hot 100 charting hip-hop trio the REJ3CTZ, individually MoWii, Pee W33, and Bounc3, are the underground force behind the new generation of music, style and dance emerging from the West Coast and influencing youth culture across the globe. Already proven as viral phenoms and trendsetters, the REJ3CTZ have now also achieved undeniable mainstream success with their hit single “Cat Daddy” which has independently sold over 400k singles and gained more than 70M views online. The song and dance craze has officially become a part of pop culture with sightings of impromptu performances by everyone from pop stars Justin Bieber and Ciara to talk show hosts Ellen Degeneres and Regis and Kelly to the victory celebrations of NFL and NBA players like NY Giants Steve Smith, Celtics Glen Davis, and Redskins Kieland Williams. Born and raised in Los Angeles (Compton, Inglewood, and South Central respectively), the REJ3CTZ are also known as the creators behind another worldwide dance craze known as the "Rej3ct" which ignited the Jerk movement worldwide in the summer of 2009.
In latest breaking news, REJ3CTZ have proclaimed "SWAG is dead" and have announced the birth of “C.R.E.E.Z.” which stands for “Creativity Rules Everything Everywhere in the Zodiac.” Already a trending topic on Twitter, the REJ3CTZ have been spotted picketing the streets of LA, New York and Miami as part of their campaign to retire “SWAG” and inspire people to rethink that concept. Their new hard hitting anthem-style track called “CREEZ” will also launch the "Swag is Dead" Mixtape hosted by the LA Leakers, DJ SourMILK and Just-N-Credible of Power 106 LA, which will feature hot new music from the REJ3CTZ and features from Travis Porter, Ray J, and more. Currently the REJ3CTZ are on the 2011 DUB Show Tour across the US with Waka Flocka, DJ Quik and Travie McCoy.
The group hit the music scene in 2008 with their underground hit "Rej3ct Stomp,” describing the "function" aka party circuit in inner city Los Angeles as well as their signature footwork dance the “Rej3ct.” The movement spread like wildfire, spawning thousands of YouTube videos imitating the style, and a new generation of music and other artists like the New Boyz with their hit song “You’re a Jerk.” Their next record “I’m Fitted” flipped the high-energy Kris-Kross favorite “Jump” and the corresponding viral video showcased their eccentric style, comedy and individual characters. "Cat Daddy" launched in late 2010 from their debut mixtape "theFUNKtion" and quickly took over Los Angeles grass-roots style, eventually making it to radio airplay at Power 106. With a strong underground following, the REJ3CTZ were requested at radio nationwide achieving airplay in over 50 cities and major markets including San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and Philadelphia. The record went on to achieve a coveted spot on the Billboard Hot 100 which covers all music genres, in addition to over 12 weeks on Billboard’s Top 100 Hip Hop and R&B and Top 25 Heatseekers charts.
The REJ3CTZ made their TV debut on the BET 106 & Park 10th Anniversary Special with Chris Brown, who also appears in the official “Cat Daddy” music video. The video attracted an impressive 8M views in just 48 hours after release on WorldStarHipHop.com and became an instant audience favorite on MTVJams, MTV2, MTVu, BET and Music Choice. The REJ3CTZ dynamic live show has taken them to over 200 venues nationwide, from high school and club tours, to major radio shows and arenas, to exclusive events for pop icon Madonna and hip hop mogul Diddy. Their TV performances include BET’s “The Mo’Nique Show,” FOX Sports “Ball Up!” and ESPN2’s “Elite24,” as well as 2 episodes of MTV2’s “The DUB Magazine Project.” Their journey has been featured in various major press outlets including XXL Magazine, MTV News, TMZ, and the Los Angeles Times.
As Renaissance Artists they are all-around creators who rap, write, dance, act, style, direct, and continue to evolve and trailblaze. Their comedic acting chops and on screen charisma hit primetime when the REJ3CTZ appeared in the premiere episode of the new hit sketch comedy show “In the Flow with Affion Crockett” on FOX. The REJ3CTZ can be seen in the upcoming films "We the Party" directed by Mario Van Peebles alongside Sallie Richardson, Michael Jai White, New Boyz, and rapper YG in theatres in Spring 2012 and “High School” with Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa. Fans can go behind the music and into the Rej3ctz lifestyle in their new TV mini-series called "Rej3ctz Takeover" currently available on Comcast On Demand.
