New York bred royalty Jim Jones and Maino have teamed up as the iconic duo of Lobby Boyz. Their self-titled album released today via ONErpm, showing the dynamic sounds of New York City bringing together all the heavy hitters currently in the rap game. The features on the Lobby Boyz album include Fivio Foreign, Fabolous, Benny The Butcher, Young M.A. & many others. The unification of Maino and Jim Jones is the epitome of what it means to be a New Yorker. The perfect blend of Harlem and Brooklyn; fearless, unstoppable and definitely a force to be reckoned with! The origin of the name comes from their gatherings in project lobbies during their youth and defines that even within their stardom, they’ll never forget where they came from. The anticipation for this album has been rising extraordinarily with the releases of their first two singles, “Lobby Boyz Anthem” and “No Bobby V”. The Lobby Boyz define what true street life in the Big Apple really is – countless hours of hustling, maneuvering through the dangers of the hood and having communal gatherings inside project lobbies.

Jermaine Coleman, better known as Maino, is a platinum recording Hip Hop artist from Brooklyn, NY. He is best known for his debut hit single titled “Hi Hater” and “All The Above” feat. T-Pain became certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In addition, the Brooklyn rapper collectively sold over 4 million digital singles to date globally. Maino grew up in the once poverty-stricken area of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Unfortunately, both of his parents were addicted to illegal drugs. Living life as a youth with little support and guidance steered Maino in the wrong direction. While incarcerated in the 1990s, he spent time in the box for 23 hours a day, where he would rap to himself to keep himself from losing his mind. Surprisingly, he was able to master the gift of rapping without writing down the lyrics, which was the moment that saved his life. After Maino’s release from prison, he started his independent record label imprint Hustle Hard Entertainment. Then, after several mixtape releases with established guest features, he signed with Universal Records. The relationship with Universal would be short-lived but it would be the opportunity for a more focused Maino to utilize his relationships and savviness to land a deal with Atlantic records.
