When They Were Sleeping

It seems as if the Family Affair exploded on the scene outta nowhere. Their hit “You Gon Love the Family” was picked as one of St. Louis top 10 hip hop songs, a major feat when you consider they were up against the likes of Nelly, Chingy, Ebony Eyez, Jibbs and a host of other artists signed to the major labels. With the over emphasis on club bangaz, the Family Affair doesn’t fall into the trap of gimmicks, sing song rap or mother goose rhymes. They’re bringing realness back to St. Louis hip hop.
