504 Boyz were an American hip hop group from New Orleans, Louisiana named for the New Orleans area code.

The original 504 Boyz, Master P (as "Nino Brown"), Mystikal (as "G. Money"), Silkk The Shocker (as "Vito"), C-Murder, and Krazy, released their first album, 'Goodfellas' in 2000.[1] It included the hit single "Wobble Wobble", a "bounce-flavored song"[2] which peaked at #17 in the U.S.[citation needed]

In 2002 C-Murder was arrested for murdering a fan[3] and Mystikal for the rape and extortion of his hairdresser.[4] They were replaced by Choppa, Currensy, Magic, and T-Bo on the 2002 album Ballers, which produced a minor hit single Tight Whips.[citation needed]

After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, 504 Boyz released a benefit compilation We Gon Bounce Back, their third and final album.[5]
