Biography

5th Ward Boyz is a southern hip hop trio, based out of Houston, Texas. Their name is derived from Houston's Fifth Ward. The group signed to Rap-A-Lot Records following the Geto Boys' popularity on the label.

The trio originally recorded for Dewey Forker's Underground Records, but moved through a deal between Forker and Rap-A-Lot chief James Smith. The two executives helped produce the debut 5th Ward Boyz album, 1993's Ghetto Dope, which was distributed through Priority.

5th Ward Boyz released Gangsta Funk the following year, then added third member Richard "Lo-Life" Nash for 1995's Rated GUsual Suspects followed in 1997, and two years later the group returned with P.W.A. The Album Title: Keep It Poppin'.
