The Dayton Family is a hard core rap group from Flint. (Where I live now)
I really thought they were mainstream for the longest time... but as stated below they really weren't. I belive it was the song "Flint Town" on their second album, FBI, that caught them some mainstream air play.
If you aint know the Dayton Family you really got somethin wrong with you and have been missin out. In and around Michigan they are mainstream but to the rest of the world they are underground. It's no surprise that they're first album What's on My Mind? sold 400,00 copies with 0 promotion and 0 airplay, and they're 2nd album F.B.I. went gold debuting on the billboard chart with 0 promotion and 0 airplay. It's clear that the people of Flint now know that tdf is no secret and is nothin but the tightest hardcore rap that there is.
Well they are coming out with their 3rd album!
See it here on myspace (waste)
I own their first 2 cds from back in the day. But its been a while sense they've put anything out. And I will probably buy the album.
For those that don't know... Dayton Ave is a street in the north side of Flint. Kinda a ruff section of town. It wasn't long ago that I got lost on the north side while riding on the chop... I quickly turned around and went back to a more familier side of town that was in my mind more safe. There's a little info/story on some history.
