What's the best part of being one of the four brothers of ATL?
L-Rock: My favorite parts are meeting new people, traveling
and seeing new places.
Danger: Just being able to be in the studio on a regular
basis, being creative, working on new songs, hearing them when we're done and having people appreciate our music.
Will: I'd say having the opportunity to know these three
[groupmates]--they're real cool people.
Tre: The best part about being in a situation where I'm
surrounded by people with more talent than me--knowing I can't go on stage and outshine everybody.
Being on stage takes lots of energy...How do you keep yourselves
L-Rock: We have personal trainers from Crunch Fitnesss;
we work out for 45 minutes three to four times a week. We do some cardiovascular exercises and some weight training, but I
like the weights--and building muscle--best.
Danger: I like to play basketball, and running up and down
the court is good exercise.
Will: At home, at night before I go to bed, I do sets of
50 push-ups, until I hit 300 to 400 total. Then I do 100 sit-ups.
Tre: Like Danger, I like to play basketball, and I also
like to jog outside.
That must make it easy to look good in clothes...
L-Rock: I like wearing what's hot, but I'm laid back. I
like hip-hop style.
Danger: I have my own style--I do something small to set
me apart, like if I have a headband on I might turn it upside down.
Will: I'm casual but at the same time a little bit sporty.
I wear sweats and a T-shirt with a fitted baseball cap at home, but if I'm going to a club I might throw on a sweater and
Tre: I like to wear my jeans not too baggy and not too tight
but fitted well, a nice pair of white sneakers and a T-shirt.
What do you like to see a sister wearing?
L-Rock: I like tight jeans and a nice blouse. I don't like
when women wear hats a lot because I like to see their hair.
Danger: I like a woman who knows how to dress and knows
how to flaunt a nice body without getting too raunchy.
Will: I like a woman dressed up in a nice dress and some
Tre: I don't care what women wear, as long as it's not hoochy-fied.
How do you like to see women wearing their hair?
L-Rock: I like braids.
Danger: I like a woman who can change up her hairstyle and
keep it spicy. I like a full head of hair with lots of wavy body, so when she walks it can bounce.
Will: I just don't like it when a woman cuts her hair!
I like a woman to let her hair down; straight is nice, but curly ain't bad, either.
Tre: I like light-colored hair with a smooth, bouncy,
shiny texture--not too short, not too long, just right, about shoulder length.
What really makes a Black woman beautiful?
L-Rock: Her inside--how she feels, how she carries herself
and her personality.
Danger: Her eyes.I like light-brown, hazel or even gray
eyes. I like to look a woman in the eyes before anything else--make eye contact and get the vibe from there.
Will: I'm going to have to agree with L-Rock and say personality,
because it's everything. I need a woman to be down to earth, easy to talk to, humble and humorous.
Tre: I like the booty--that's my favorite part! OK...it's
a mixture of booty and personality.
You make a big claim to be "Calling All Girls," in your first single.What's
your secret to approaching a sister?
L-Rock: I'll go up to her and say, "What's your name?" I'm
pretty straightforward, but I don't say anything cheesy.
Danger: I just create a situation in which the woman can
talk to me, and I take it from there.
Will: I introduce myself and go from there.
Tre: I'm straightforward and I like to gauge a woman's personality
