Sophia Fresh Work For T-Pain, Stay True To DJ Screw

Crystal, Skye and Cole Rose, collectively known as Sophia Fresh, may be one hit away from national fame, but they're unwavering in their loyalty to the Bayou City. Case in point: Sophia Fresh recently unleashed a remix of the DJ Screw classic

"June 27"

"June 27"

in honor of the chopped and screwed tunes that served as a soundtrack to their childhood.

We reached out to T-Pain's robo-voiced minions, whose new single "This Instant" (featuring their boss) premiered on BET's 106th & Park earlier this week, over the phone to find out what they've been up to lately. Dig in, it's sweet.

Rocks Off: Whose idea was it to do the "June 27" remix?

Crystal: All of us. We all came up with the idea.

RO: Oh come on, that's the diplomatic response.

Crystal: "June 27" was just one of those things that we play to get ourselves pumped. In the studio or in the car, we just used to listen to a lot of Screwed Up Click songs. It's just something that get us pumped up, so we decided to put our spin to it.
