Tha Squad

From Rap Dictionary

Rappers Pay Back and Illy make up the frontline of this now infamous rap group hailing from the Jamestown Crescent (aka Doomstown) section of Rexdale, Ontario, Canada. Their underground hit single "We Need More" (which was featured on both "Rapsheets" and "Premiere Edition" DVD compilations) started a buzz around Toronto and, according to police, sparked a war between rival gangs from the Ardwick and Jamestown area. Tha Squad has been described as remenisant of a younger, more hungrier Mobb Deep, with their own distinctive delivery and flow. Unfortunately, group member Illy was picked up along with other alleged members of the Doomstown Crips in the joint police raid dubbed "PROJECT XXX", which has put a hault on any further material from this group.
