About PZK

French pop group PZK have scored a string of hits with their upbeat mélange of electro-pop, hip-hop, and dance music while their lyrics take playful aim at the obsessions of the typical teenage boy, including girls, school, partying, girls, pizza, video games, loud music, and girls. PZK was formed in 2006 by five longtime friends: MC, producer, and DJ KBC (aka Clement Simpelaere), MC JLB (aka Hugo Jeans Louis Baptiste Blondel), producer Baobab (aka Antoine Delbeare), MC Djouzy Djouz (aka Mendji Tebabes), and MC Olf (aka Florent Pyndhia). The guys began writing funny rap lyrics just for fun while they were in their early teens, and as their skills improved, they started recording their work and passing it around. Their podcasts and mixtapes began attracting a large following on the internet, and after a few successful television appearances and a successful co-release with another French hip-hop act, Obscene Kids, PZK scored a record contract with Warner Music Group. Their first single, 2009's "La Filles Adorent," was a major hit in France, and the group's first full-length album, simply titled PZK, appeared a few months later. ~ Mark Deming
