Southsyde B.O.I.Z.


The Southsyde B.O.I.Z. were a hip-hop/rap music duo from the '90s. Not much information is given about them, but  B.O.I.Z. stood for Beats Originated In the 'Zon (meaning Arizona).

In 1996, the duo released the single "Get Ready, Here It Comes (It's the Choo Choo)" which peaked at #96 on the Billboard Hot 100, #10 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles, #43 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart and #62 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 14 weeks.

After that, nothing much was heard from the Southsyde B.O.I.Z. and they appear to have faded into obscurity.
