In case you think you don't know who the Ying Yang Twins are, believe me, you do. For the past 14 years, this hip-hop duo (Kaine and D-roc) from Atlanta has been cranking out the hits, perhaps most notably, “Salt Shaker” and “Whistle while you Twurk” (a personal favorite). While their work with fellow Southern hip-hop artist Lil Jon helped launch their career, they are far from a sideshow. Their song “Halftime (Stand up and get crunk)” is a regular fixture in many NFL stadiums, not just in the South, but all over the country. Regardless of your opinions on hip-hop, these guys sure know how to write a song that can get stuck in your head for literally days, and I am not joking.

The duo performs along with Fake Patrois, Disco & Gregg, Raymo, Scer, Dennis Lee & Enigma, and The Duke tonight at High Dive, starting at 8.
