Three uniquely creative people from three different English-speaking nations, Blewz (USA), Stacy-Ann (Jamaica), and Steve English (UK), have teamed up to form the hip-hop/pop/reggae trio American Yard. Recently signed by Akon to his Konvict label, the Yard say hello with a bang on the folkway-deviators’ anthem, Yes We Did. The overall feel has a rather Midwestern sound to it (think Bone Thugs/Do or Die), as producer Ike Boogie lends a laid-back beat that will remind many of DJ U-Neek and The Legendary Traxster’s classic production. Those who are tired of the same ‘ol same ‘ol will no doubt want the answer to “Did you hear the new American Yard?” to be “Yes We Did.”
