About Krazy Kuzins & Cool Front Productions

Who Are Krazy Kuzins:

Krazy Kuzins is a virtual, kids hip-hop group that consist of 4 members, Jake, Abby G, John Mike & Jenny B. The grade-school foursome, who do all of the singing and rapping on the tracks are depicted through animation and also happen to be real life cousins! The music is original and kid-friendly and their sound and style is very different from what most people are used to hearing in the children's genre. All songs are written, composed and recorded by Matt Lavan & Mike Griffith of Cool Front Productions (the dads of the Krazy Kuzins).

As you'll hear in the songs, the Krazy Kuzins do lot's of the same things that you do too, like going to school, playing sports & video games, hanging out with friends and just being kids. They are back in the studio working on a 3rd CD that critics are saying could be the most important recording since the Beatles released Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band!

The Background:

"Any adult who loves beats and rhymes faces a quandary in how to share their love of rap with their children, since nothing remotely resembling hip-hop is part of today's pre-teen music scene. The Kuzins might just be able to fill that void." Time Out New York Kids

As the article about Krazy Kuzins mentions, there is very little hip-hop music available for kids in the pre / young tween age group and even less with the KIDS DOING THE ACTUAL SINGING & RAPPING. We wanted to offer something that was completely different while keeping it fun and clean, so with that Krazy Kuzins was born. Our unique style has been very well received from not only parents and kids but the media and music industry as well.

After releasing our first CD, ‘It's A Kids Thing" on our Cool Front label in late 2006, the music industry quickly took notice as we were soon in discussions with a major kids entertainment company that rhymes with picklelodeon. At the same time, Mathew Knowles (Beyonce's Dad) and his Music World Entertainment label had the opportunity to check out our CD. Within days we received a call that Mathew wanted to sign us and 3 months later we were officially part of the MWE family and ready for Krazy Kuzins animated videos, coloring books and the shelves of Walmart!

In November 2007, Music World re-released ‘It's A Kid's Thing" as well as our holiday CD, "Hip Hop Holiday Cheer" from coast to coast in stores and of course online. It was very soon after the release that things began to go downhill...fast. Due to many unfortunate circumstances over the course of 2008, we decided it would be best to leave the label and once again provide Krazy Kuzins with the energy, effort and marketing that it deserves.
