Argyle Pimps

Based In: Los Angeles, California, USA

The Argyle Pimps have a hip hop pedigree dating back to the mid-nineties, when David Northrop (a.k.a. Boney Beezly) and Jamie Nelson (a.k.a. Cockamamie Jamie) started participating in local rap cyphers, and even before that with Jamie break dancing in front of the local Toys ‘R’ Us as a kid in 1984. Having independently released their first album Invisible Jet-Ski’s in 2007, the Pimps enjoyed popular acclaim in indie hip hop circles, locally in California, and internationally via the web. In more recent times, Jamie and Boney have been working with EngLebuRt on material for a new album as well as individual side projects, which have included some acting, stand-up comedy and lecturing as well as hip hop music.With its wit, humor and cultural awareness, and lyrical content closer to the experience of the general population than that of many of their contemporaries, The Argyle Pimps’ music has a wide appeal, which encompasses and reaches beyond regular listeners of hip hop.
