The full Disturbing Tha Peace roster consists of:
Chris “Ludacris” Bridges: Multi-talented and multi-award winning artist has sold over 12 million albums since his debut in 2000. He is a philanthropist and founder of the Ludacris Foundation, the CEO of the successful Disturbing Tha Peace Records, he has just signed a deal to launch “Disturbing Tha Peace Presents Ludacris’ Open Mic on XM Radio in 2006. In addition, Ludacris has solidified himself as a serious actor with his critically acclaimed roles in “Crash” and “Hustle & Flow.”
Bobby Valentino: The platinum selling Bobby Valentino released his debut solo album Disturbing Tha Peace Presents…Bobby Valentino this year on DTP/Def Jam Records. The album was launched with the hit singles, “Slow Down” and “Tell Me.” His next single is the soulful ballad, “Angel.”
Field Mob: While hip-hop prides itself on being the soundtrack to the streets, Field Mob does their best to represent the country. Field Mob, comprised of Smoke and Shawn Jay, chose the name Field Mob to represent The Field, a small area of Albany where they grew up. Despite their age and lack of experience, their 613: Ashy to Classy debut is a polished effort that features clever lyrics and solid production. The same can be said for From Tha Roota to Tha Toota, the 2002 follow-up that showed the Georgia natives collaborating with Trick Daddy and moving closer to the Outkast-esque production work they hinted at on their debut. Their third album Light Poles And Pine Trees is scheduled to be released top of the year on Disturbing Tha Peace/Geffen Records.
Playaz Circle: The history of music is replete with dynamic duos, all of whom have made an indelible impression on this genre of music called hip-hop. Over the years great acts like EPMD, Raekwon & Ghostface, Outkast and 8ball & MJG have made history by consistently releasing classic material that has impacted the lives of generations to come. With the release of Atlanta based duo Playaz Circle’s fantastic debut LP entitled Supply And Demand, Tity Boi and Dolla Boy will make history by expanding the list of seminal hip-hop duos by one more entry.
Fate: Hailing from Atlanta with a flow all his own, Fate has honed his skills as part of Ludacris’ DTP crew since the beginning. He is currently working on his solo album scheduled to be released
