The Atlanta based rap duo - Ying Yang Twins' (D-Roc and Kaine) and long time producer, Michael "Mr. Collipark", has teamed up with rapper/producer Wyclef Jean and Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis to executive produce the fifth Ying Yang Twins album entitled Chemically Imbalanced, which is the follow-up to the Twins' 2005 platinum release United State of Atlanta (U.S.A.). The album's singles include the energized, yet melodic hit 'Dangerous' and the teaser single called, '1st Booty On Duty'. The full length Chemically Imbalanced will be released late 2006.
There’s no question to whether or not the Ying Yang Twins can make it rain inside a smoke-filled shake joint with their hyperactive 808-infused tracks, mannish school boy theatrics and raunchy, sex-charged lyrics. But after five albums with two going platinum back to back, D-Roc and Kaine aim to make musical thunderstorms all over the world.Meshing their signature down South booty shake with Caribbean-flavored twists, these two Atlanta-bred brothers from another mother team up with multicultural rap icons Wyclef Jean and famed producer Jerry Wonder for the Winter release of their Collipark/ TVT Records album, Chemically Imbalanced. On this momentous occasion in music history, the album will be executive produced by label CEO Mr. Collipark, Wyclef and Jerry Wonder.“Every time we’ve came out, we never used someone else’s formula for success. And that’s what Wyclef told me,” D-Roc explains. “We gained our own success. He said ‘I just want y’all to bring me to your world.’ We wanna get to your world. The album came out to be magic.”
For their first musical magic trick, they set the stage for their hybrid blends of hypnotizing world compositions with the saucy lead single “Dangerous.” Atop repetitive guitar plucks, heavy metal riffs and Wyclef’s undeniable humming on the hook, D-Roc and Kaine admire the seductive poses of a money-making pole dancer.The first ones at the club and the last ones to leave, they show even more love to A-town strippers on the breakout track “1st Booty on Duty.” Pledging their support for single mothers, they wave handfuls of 10s and 20s over a mid-tempo Mr. Collipark-produced banger.“People used to laugh cause we talk about going to the strip club, but they used to tip toe and go there,” D-Roc explains. “If you go to the strip club, you see what you like, and you are able to drink. Every man, I hope, has been to the strip club when he got old enough. We just talk about what we do.”Brought together as group some six years ago by label CEO Michael “Mr. Collipark” Crooms, Kaine and D-Roc had been long-time acquaintances in their native ATL. D-Roc had established himself on the local level as a solo artist but when they recorded a song together for Collipark’s (then known as DJ Smurf) album, he knew had struck gold.“When they did that record together, it was crazy,” Collipark remembers.
