Product Overview

Remember when Hip-Hop fans actually wrote down the words to their favorite songs and memorized them. Today, it’s hard to find MCs who make you think, and critics are quick to condemn Southern rappers as the worst offenders of all. Enter Field Mob and their third album, Light Poles and Pine Trees.

The pioneers of the country boy movement waste no time delivering lyrics destined to switch up the game. Respect ‘em because you can’t check ‘em. Painting vivid pictures powered by their colorful, down-home perspective, Field Mob’s rhymes stand out.

That’s what Ludacris thought when he signed them to his Disturbing Tha Peace/Geffen Records imprint. Being an artist first, and arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time, Ludacris saw untapped potential. DTP is a whole ‘nother chapter in Field Mob’s career. After bad deals and botched promotion, Smoke (Darion Crawford) and Shawn Jay (Shawn Johnson) are finally getting the look they deserve. After all, the Albany, Georgia natives have always thought the third time would be the charm. Now they’re banking on it with the release of their 3rd CD, Light Poles and Pine Trees.

Featuring sure-fire hits, all-star collaborations and too-true lyrics, the group’s release illustrates why Field Mob are credited with jumpstarting the current Southern Hip-Hop explosion. Look no further than Luda, Ciara, Bun B, Bone Crusher, Bobby V. and Jazze Pha for just a few of the heavyweights cosigning for the rappers formerly known as Boondox and Kalage.

Album Notes and Credits
Though Field Mob sticks with its rural-minded perspective on 2006's LIGHT POLES AND PINE TREES, the Georgia-based hip-hop duo offers up another round of tracks that are custom-made for inner-city clubs. A straight-up set of beat-driven Dirty South anthems, the record finds Smoke and Shawn Jay easing into rhymes about cars (the slightly screwed "My Wheels"), women (the R&B/pop-tinged "So What," featuring Ciara), and their roots (the catchy "Smilin'," with Ludacris). The pair's most accessible and assured outing to date, LIGHT POLES is sure to please Mob diehards and win over some new fans as well.

Spin (p.78) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With soaring, twangy accents....Georgia natives Smoke and Shawn Jay impressively subvert crunk stereotypes..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "[T]heir bouncy tracks will most likely satisfy old-school OutKast fans....Field Mob excel with a drawl and a wink." -- Grade: B
Vibe (p.140) - "Field Mob aims to prove that witty lyrics, bright song concepts, and breezy tunes can still triumph in the Dirty South."
XXL (Magazine) (p.133) - "Field Mob makes a point to raise the bar lyrically....The Mob's quest for respect is not lost as they make a smooth transition..."
