Madoa and Botti are the duo that form the group known as The Drop Squad. Inspired by the Spike Lee movie of the same name, The Drop Squad’s main goal is to paint a more positive picture of black culture than the one normally portrayed in mainstream hip-hop. Natives of Newport News, VA and Baltimore, MD, Madoa and Botti met during their time at Fort Bragg where they established an enduring friendship centered around their love for music. In the incipient stages of making music, while serving their country and after numerous tours overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, the two decided not to re-enlist in the army. Never quick to give up, the two decided to continue making music; Botti went overseas as a contractor to give their dream some monetary backing while Madoa attended college full-time in pursuit of his bachelors. All the while, the two continued to make music with protools by sending the recording sessions back and forth via dropsend.
After compiling a pretty impressive catalogue of music and each one having achieved the first tier of their goals, the two decided to drop their first official mixtape, “The Drop.” Featuring production from Odissee, Best Kept Secret, Cache and many more it was definitely worth the wait. The success of their mixtape together with opening up for Mya and The Clipse, being featured on several podcasts including the one ran by DJ Flash (Little Brother’s DJ), having their lead single "Miss HBCU" played in Virginia and North Carolina, being featured on many of the top hip-hop blog sites, performing at numerous shows along the east coast and receiving positive reviews at several hip-hop summits featuring industry insiders, The Drop Squad is definitely on the come up.
Currently working on “Prelude to History” the follow up to their debut mixtape, Madoa and Botti are poised to bring much needed change to hip-hop.
