Lost Boyz Ready To Join Lolla Line-up

July 17 [14:00 EDT] -- The Eels, Summercamp, and the Old 97's are poised to pass the baton to a new batch of second stage acts on Lollapalooza, and rappers the Lost Boyz are among the groups to take on the challenge.

Fresh from the release of their latest effort, "Love, Peace and Nappiness," the Lost Boyz will join Failure, Atari Teenage Riot, Skeleton Key and others on Lolla's second stage starting this Friday in Ohio. Last month, the Boyz launched the album by playing all 16 tracks with a live band, at a New York City club.

So what should Lollapalooza fans expect from the Lost Boyz?

"Energy," the group's Pretty Lou told MTV News. "Tell them to bring their towels, make sure they got their water and that other stuff and it's all good."

"Just bring yourself, ya know what I mean," Mr. Cheeks added. "Bring yourself

with an open mind. We're about to set it off." [1MB QuickTime]

"Cause we listen to all forms of music, know what I'm sayin'," Pretty Lou explained. "It's not just hip-hop we listen to. So we expect people to just have the same type of open mind that we have."

You can take that open mind and catch the Lost Boyz on the remainder of the Lollapalooza tour, which wraps up August 16 in Mountain View, California. Here's where the Boyz will be playing before then, along with Korn, Tool, Tricky, and the rest of the Lolla crowd:
