After two singles released in successive Cavalier seasons, most Cavs fans are familiar with 'those two white guys rapping about the Cavaliers' - but - who are they really? Well, I'd tell you their government names but they don't want their co-workers finding them out. And its not why you think...they really can't be signing CD's all day...they have work to do. Ever since Napster, the rap game just hasn't been paying like it used.
Nevertheless, StepienRules reached out to the street, and our conversation with the group that brought you most recently - A Ring for the King - is below...
StepienRules: You guys are known as the 'guys that make Cavalier rap songs'...do you have a formal name for your group?
Curse Breakers:Yeah, the Curse Breakers...my rap game name is Thrifty, my colleague goes by the pseudonym Truth.
StepienRules: I've noticed in both of your singles - Notorious Cavs and A Ring for the King - you've sampled Cleveland's own Bone Thugs n Harmony...is that a coincidence or by design?
Curse Breakers: It was simply a coincidence that we utilized two of the finest rap songs ever to be created in Cleveland as the backdrops to our Cavs tributes. Bone is one of the best groups of all-time, and I hope one day we'll be meeting a championship at the Crossroads because this city needs one badly. We also do have some ideas for future jingles that branch out of the Mo Thugs family tree as well.
StepienRules: Do you have any plans for a mid-season song, or are you guys strictly an album per year type artist?
Curse Breakers: Some ideas are in the mix but time will only tell what will be released next. We may have to create a "Free Delonte" song after hearing about his recent indictment. Hoping nothing but the best for him. He provides such a spark to this team, and I think he might be the funniest person on the planet.
