ABOUT THE DUO
Label mates, Cortez Oates p/k/a Rubberband OG and Karvin Jones p/k/a Posa, may be new to
some, while considered artists on the rise by others, have created an early buzz with previous
solo efforts such as the Bout That Life mixtape by Rubberband OG (TIG Records) and Posa’s first
single, “In A Minute” featuring TIG label mate Q Money, followed by the 4 song introductory
Bolo EP. Rubberband OG, hailing from Montgomery, has garnered over 4 million plays on Apple
Music alone, meanwhile Posa from the smaller, coastal town, Mobile, has over 1.5 million video
views. Both are known in Alabama with an increasing fan base throughout the Southeast, which
this joint project will certainly expand the pairs’ following, lending anticipation to each artists’
solo project scheduled for Q2 2020.


ABOUT THE MIXTAPE “2 SIDES OF DA BOTTOM”

2 Sides Of Da Bottom features 10 strong tracks with track 6, “Enemies” as the initial focus.
Whether it came from a similar upbringing or the love for music, the duo had natural chemistry
in the studio. Bouncing ideas and melodies off of each other to make a strong cohesive project
with a diverse subject matter that reflects both artists, 2 Sides of Da Bottom was born.
The intro track, “Packs from Cali,” is one of Rubberband OG’s favorite tracks. The track is
a bop for the trappers, detailing the good, bad, and the ugly of the streets. Posa favors the most
introspective track on the album, “Burn One.” An anthem for smokers, Posa says, “I don’t really

smoke like that, but this is one of those songs where you see so much or you’re going through
so much that you just wanna burn one.” He explains that the song came from personal
experiences and how he learned how to release the pressure.
“One of my other favorites on the album is ‘Even Better,’” Posa says, “That was inspired
by real life,” he says with a laugh. The song is about a woman who is “even better,” than the girl
he had before her. “She cook even better, she listen even better” The song is destined to be on
regular rotation in Atlanta’s infamous strip clubs.
In the lead song, “Enemies,” the two alternate back and forth while lamenting the
inevitable, seeing friends turn into enemies. At just over two minutes, the track is impactful as
the album turns darker in the second half. “Enemies is just one of those songs where our styles
just fit together,” says Rubberband OG.
The second half of the album shows the personal growth of both artists. On “Use To,”
Rubberband OG takes the lead talking about his former life, “I done came a long way/I was
broke/in the trap hoping 12 don’t kick the door,” he raps on the bridge while trying out his own
singing style on the hook.
The last track, “Big Dogg Sh*t,” ends the album on a high note. One of the most
up-tempo songs on the album, it’s optimistic in its flow. “That’s the one right there,” Posa says,
“We’re letting you know, we ain’t leaving nothing on the table. We’re on everything. Whatever
you’re on, we’re on it.”
“On the album, you get both of our sides of one story,” says Posa, “We are two different
artists. We have two different styles, and deliveries, but we still come together to make one
solid project. We both are from the very bottom, and we’re giving you two sides of it.”

ABOUT TIG RECORDS
Think It’s A Game Records has become a powerhouse in the music industry because of the
motivation and drive of Founder and C.E.O. Girvan “Fly” Henry. The New York-born and
Atlanta-raised entrepreneur, mogul and philanthropist is the visionary behind Think It’s A Game
Records. Thanks to Fly and his team, Think It’s A Game Records has quietly grown from a local
label and management company into a multi-platinum hit-making powerhouse with major
distribution, numerous awards, and a place at the forefront of the culture.
2012 marked a mainstream breakthrough for the company. Trinidad James’s “All Gold
Everything” blew up as one of the biggest songs of 2012. Not only did it earn a gold plaque from
the RIAA, but an interpolation of the track featured in Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ mega-hit,
“Uptown Funk,” which scored GRAMMY® Awards in the categories of “Record the Year” and
“Best Pop/Duo Performance.” Meanwhile, Rich Homie Quan’s star skyrocketed. “Walk Thru”
reached gold status, while “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)” went double-platinum and soared to #1 on
the radio. At the same time, TIG7 Publishing garnered a trio of BMI Awards in the category of
“Most Performed R&B/Hip-Hop Song” for “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)”, YG’s “My Hitta” [feat. Rich
Homie Quan & Jeezy], and Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle.” In addition to BMI Awards, TIG7 Publishing
has received several awards and accomplishments for signed producer June James: Billboard
Top 40 Single with Travis Scott’s “Yosemite” which also went double platinum and Hot Single
100 with Yo Gotti’s “Put A Date On It”, certified platinum.
That success continued in 2017. Following years of development, “Fly” steered YFN Lucci to
stratospheric success. “Key To The Streets” [feat. Trouble & Migos], also produced by TIG’s
signed producer June James, marked the second consecutive #1 at radio, and it became
platinum. “Everyday We Lit”, produced by TIG’s signed producer June James, followed the third
consecutive #1 at radio, with a gold certification. Along the way, he orchestrated a high-profile
distribution deal for Think It’s A Game Records with Warner Bros. Records. Under this
partnership, Lucci’s full-length debut, Ray Ray from Summer Hill, captured spots in the Top 10

of the Billboard U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop and US Rap charts in addition to the Top 15 of the Top 200.
“Fly” has been personally featured by everyone from XXL, Black Enterprise, and BET to
HipHopDX and more.

Most recently, Megan teamed up with the National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) Disaster Services and U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee for her #HottiesHelpingHouston initiative that aims to rebuild and repair homes for senior citizens and single mothers affected by the recent devastation in her hometown of Houston, Texas. Megan prioritizes her philanthropic efforts and she champions women’s empowerment. She recently partnered with Fashion Nova for International Women’s Day, launching an initiative to give away $1 million in the month of March to finance female entrepreneurs, female students, women-owned businesses, and women-focused charities. Megan also recently teamed up with Cash App to spread financial literacy around Bitcoin and banking.
