[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Busta Rhymes dug into his "Doin' It Again" smash, Ying Yang Twins get the ladies to take off their "2 Piece."]
Me and D-Roc love what we do. That's first and foremost. We just go into the studio and it's like fun time. We never have stopped recording. We've always thought it was good to keep going and staying close into the present.
If you guys want to see a music video for this, we can make it happen. -Kaine
"2 Piece" is actually [a few] years old. It sounds like it came out yesterday but we actually recorded that when we recorded [2008's] "Drop." I remember we had recorded that back then. We had just been sitting on it and Kaine had come through saying, "We need to go ahead and get that thing out there."
It was always Ying Yang and we did it for the strip clubs, off top. It kind of put us in a Caribbean strip club and what you do is go to the beach and see the women in their two piece. So we figured with this record we're going to make it a nude beach.
If we do a nude beach [music video], then we'll just have it at night, music blasting and then turn on the lights with everybody nude. -D-Roc
Atlanta's party rap duo Ying Yang Twins scored a hit with the single "Whistle While You Twurk," which received nationwide airplay on urban and crossover radio stations. Their full-length debut album, Thug Walkin', appeared later in 2000. Alley...Return of the Ying Yang Twins from 2002 sold well down South, but it was the duo's 2003 team-up with Lil Jon -- "the King of Crunk" -- that brought them nationwide success. The party anthem "Salt Shaker" was a massive club and radio hit and soon had the TVT label chasing the duo to sign. They did, and their first album for the label, Me & My Brother, yielded two more crunk hits, "What's Happnin!" and "Naggin'." The same year the duo appeared on Britney Spears' album In the Zone and her television special of the same name. In 2004, TVT released the remix-filled My Brother & Me with a bonus DVD of the group's videos. USA (United State of Atlanta) appeared in the summer of 2005 as its single "Wait (The Whisper Song)" was dominating urban radio. Chemically Imbalanced followed in 2006.
