History

Group members Jabari Evans (Naledge) and Michael Aguilar (Double-O) met in 2000 during a talent show at the University of Pennsylvania. They began recording songs, making demos, and performing at local shows. That eventually led to Double-0 and Naledge forming Kidz in the Hall. Double-0 eventually made a connection with Just Blaze. Blaze aligned himself with the duo and oversaw School Was My Hustle. Kidz in the Hall signed a group deal with Rawkus Records, and released their debut album School Was My Hustle in 2006.[1]

In November 2007, Kidz in the Hall were officially signed to Duck Down Records, an independent label started by founding members of the Boot Camp Clik. The duo's most recent album, The In Crowd, was released in May 2008, on lead single "Drivin' Down the Block," which samples Masta Ace's song "Born to Roll" for the hook and contains an interpolation of Outkast's "Elevators (Me & You)" on the bridge. Many other tracks on the album use samples and interpolations of early 1990s hip hop, including their song "Snob Hop" featuring Camp Lo which uses the hook from Black Sheep's song "Flava of the Month" for the chorus. Their song "Blackout" was featured on the soundtrack of Madden '09. Naledge is also planning to come out with a solo album in the near future. He says exclusively to hiphopdx.com, "My solo album is still in the process of being put together. I’ve been busy with shows, but I have some tracks in the works," says [Naledge]]. "I got beats from 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Double-O, Pete Rock and [two or three from] Just Blaze. Just Blaze has been my ‘yes man,’ okaying tracks for the album." http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.7891/title.exclusive-naledge-talks-solo-album-upcoming-projects

Kidz and Obama

In early 2007, Kidz in the Hall created a song entitled "Work To Do" in support of democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. The song features a sample from The Main Ingredient's version of the Isley Brothers original of the same name.[2]

Fight in Tempe

On July 26, 2008, after a show at the Cherry Lounge & Pit in Tempe, Arizona, an altercation took place between Double-O and one of the Cherry Lounge bouncers. According to witnesses, after Double-O subdued the bouncer, several more of the bar's security became involved. A cameraman who had been hired to record the performance was able to catch a portion of the incident on video. Both Double-O and Naledge were arrested, and Double-O charged with Assault and Disorderly Conduct. Arraignment was to take place on August 5th, 2008, but was postponed, possibly due to the fact that Double-O required intensive surgery to repair a broken eye socket sustained during the attack.[3]
