Southern Group GS Boyz Receive BET Award Nomination

The GS Boyz ignited the scene from their very first bar, and they've left a trail of scorched earth in their wake. On the strength of the unstoppable single Stanky Legg, which has crisscrossed the country and the globe, the GS Boyz from Texas are primed for their first-ever BET Award Best Group.

Label head and former Bad Boy recording artist Yung Joc says of the nomination; "The GS Boyz have truly been a blessing and a blast to work with. Their hard work and determination has garnered them a worldwide fan base and a nomination from BET."

The nomination should come as little surprise, as Stanky Legg topped BET's 106 & Park video countdown way back in February and has hovered near the top spot ever since. The song generated millions of hits on YouTube and surpassed a million digital sales. But as a testament to the song's popularity with both consumers and DJs alike, Stanky Legg became the nation's top-selling physical single as well.

The GS Boyz, signed to Swagg Team/Jive/Battery Records, show no signs of slowing down. Just last week, they debuted their follow-up single, Booty Dew. Forty of the nation's radio stations added it, a tremendous number right off the bat. Additionally, the GS Boyz walked the video right onto the couch on 106 & Park; the song was played immediately. Expect the groundswell only to grow, following the well-worn path of Stanky Legg. Both of these monster hits have laid the groundwork for their forthcoming album, due at the end of fall 2009.
