Loyalty Boys have a long history with Jahlil Beats. Founding member, Shaamar “S.” Gandy, is not only a close friend but also his business partner. Loyalty boys have been on Power 99, 100.3 & 96.5 due to their versatile music. In the fall of 2010 they were media affiliates with College Mansion and Bud Light performing at 12 events throughout the Philadelphia and suburban areas. The question the members of Phocused Records & the Loyalty Boys continually ask themselves is “What can we do for Hip Hop?” Making music for the “Love” of it not the “Lust” and that’s what separates them from the pack. With over 250 + people coming out to there shows from all types of demographics shows the versatility of the music the “Loyalty Boys” create.
Phocused Records & the Loyalty Boys have many future endeavors that will expand their business from not only just making music but every aspect of the entertainment world. Some labels limit themselves to one type of market; Phocused Records enjoys collaborating with variety of entertainers and companies to build a stronger foundation. They say the bamboo tree takes over 5 years to build its foundation just to sprout a tiny shoot out. But once its sprouts, it grows 3 feet every day until it reaches 90 feet. Phocused Records feels they have a strong comparison to the bamboo tree. Planting the seed years ago, finally sprouting and showing growth thru patience, persistent and faith.
