"That's what we're beginning to see with the collaboration between Falside and Juan Deuce," Francis said. "It also helps that they are great friends, and that connection really shines . . . Falside is enigmatic and, especially after seeing them together in videos, I think the fans are itching to see them together on stage.

"I had Juan open up the last time I played the Met and was pleasantly surprised to see that he had a grasp of showmanship, which is rare in our parts as far as rappers go.

"I haven't been this excited about a new hip-hop group in quite some time, and the fact that they're a local group creating a significant buzz outside of our state makes it especially awesome for me."

Yep, what he said.
