504 Boyz were an American hip hop group led by Percy Miller, a.k.a. Master P of No Limit Records recording artist from New Orleans, Louisiana formed in 2000 and disbanded in 2006. The group's name is a reference to the area code 504, which covers greater New Orleans, Louisiana. Originally the group consisted of Master P, Mystikal and Silkk The Shocker (under the aliases Nino Brown, G. Money, & Vito respectively). Right before the release of their first album C-Murder & Krazy were added to the lineup. This lineup was intact on their debut, 'Goodfellas' which contained the hit "Wobble Wobble" produced by Carlos Stephens,[1] which peaked at #17 in the U.S.; the album was noted for showing a more direct influence from New Orleans' bounce music sound than had earlier No Limit releases.[2]
