“STG” is a dynamic rap group from Sumter, South Carolina who is breaking down doors on the SC rap scene. The group “STG” consists of  Jalen “King Hood” Hill (23) and  Farronzo “BadNews” Holmes (24); the duo has been tearing up the Carolina’s and the SouthEastern pipeline with promotion and shows. All of this hardwork eventually paid off besause it has them on the radar of HipHop Magazine XXL as pissible picks for this year’s XXL Freshman class. “STG” has performed at multiple venues in multiple states  and has also opened up for multiple major artists. Upcoming projects form the group include the mixtape “Drug Love”, Floyd “Badnews” Mayweather, and King Hood’s “More Than Music”. While the group remains independent, the goal they say;  is to receive a major distribution deal or major deal all in one. I’ve had a chance to ask the group a few questions via email:
