Rock City Is Now Planet VI (Duo Changes Name, Splits From Akon)Posted by: Scott / Category: Artists, News
Brothers Theron “Da Spokesman” and Timothy “Don’t Talk Much,” formerly known as Rock City have officially changed their name to Planet VI. The duo have also parted ways with Akon’s Konvict Music imprint. The brothers explained the drastic changes in a recent interview with AllHipHop. ??We are working on everyones album from Justin Beiber to T.I. to B.o.B. We are on the writing scene in Atlanta, Da Spokesman says. ??We dropped on December 30th we are at about 30,000 downloads in less than thirty days, so we are proud of that.” alot of our old fans might have known us as Rock City, we were songwriters on Rhiannas ??Man Down?? and Justin Beiber?? ??Run Away Love, and bunch of stuff like that and we were artists trying to find our place and everyone wanted us to write songs like that for ourselves, Da Spokesman explained. ??We wrote songs for Rhianna because thats what she represents, but that does not mean we represent what she represents. So with this project we felt it was time for a change, we did no??t put our picture on it and we just put it out, we just put it out and wanted to people who heard it for the first time, to hear it and just nothing else. I would say the transition of going through music business politics and us being non political people, we just did? not fit in and now that we are able to go create our own world, our own vibe, our own language, our own slang, and our own sh*t. This is the sh*t we been preaching since we came into the business.
