Fresh off of the release their debut album Added Sugar, Planet Giza, comprising of Tony Stone (center), Rami B (right) , and DoomX (left), sit with us to talk about their origins and their latest sounds.
The group started on different paths. Rami B was making beats with a different group and eventually connected with Tony Stone back when they had to take summer courses together. “He taught me how to make beats,” Stone would later use these talents to make beats for another francophone rapper named Rowjay, who connected him with Doom. The pair then later worked together through sending each other beats over Facebook, eventually becoming the duo known as The North Virus. “But Rami was still going crazy on his side,” says Stone, “So I thought, damn, well Rami makes beats, Doom makes beats, let’s all just come to my house and make beats!”
What came from the weekend of 2K and beatmaking was Old School Convertible a beat which caught on a bit of a wave on Soundcloud. Thinking of the small scale success that their first beat had, they had continued to work. From The North Virus x Rami B(izzle) to the now Planet Giza, “we just work with him all the time, we just need something of our own, as a trio.’ indicates Stone.
