Skatterman & Snug Brim is a rap duo from Kansas City, Missouri, best known for their song, Block Party.

After releasing projects separately, Skatterman (born Stacy Dewayne Landis[1]) and Snug Brim (born Aaron R. Henderson[1]) combined as a group. The duo released their first album, Worth A Million, in 2002 through Below Radar Records. On the cover they were listed as "Skatterman & Snug Brim," but the inside of the case displayed "Skatterman & Snug Brim AKA Yung Gunz." The "Yung Gunz" name was later dropped due to a conflict with another group of the same name, but different spelling. (Young Gunz)

After the release of their first album, the duo signed with the Kansas City-based label, Strange Music. They recorded the album, Urban Legendz which was released in 2004. The single from the album, "Block Party," charted #24 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales in October of the same year.[2]

Word on tha Streets was released August 12, 2008. The follow up to their Urban Legendz album featured the songs: "I'm That Nigga", "Sukka Dukkas" and "Heartbreaker." Featured artists included Tech N9ne, Young Buck, Paul Wall and Rich The Factor.[3]

On February 9, 2009, Tech N9ne's official website announced the duo's decision to leave the Strange Music label after fulfilling their commitment.[4]

On February 23, Skatterman & Snug Brim issued a press release through their MySpace account confirming that they had left the Strange Music label after fulfilling their two-album commitment. The duo also revealed that they had started a new label, Bigg Shot Music & Films, with Skatterman acting as President / CEO and Snug Brim/] Plans for a new Skatterman & Snug Brim album were also included in this release, indicating that their third album Perseverance would be released through the label on September 1 via a two-album distribution deal with RYKO/Warner Bros.[5] However, plans for the album were later dropped due to Snug Brim's decision to go back to school and work towards a 15 month certification in music marketing. Skatterman also moved forward with work on a solo mixtape titled The Cookbook, released on November 2, 2009. The mixtape will be followed by his studio album, Self Made scheduled for release on March 16, 2010.[6]
