Video: The Homies – “Thirsty“
Collective Comprised of Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shloob & Quiiso Share a Beachy and Breezy New Video As They Prepare For Their Next Album It’s A Lot Goin’ On Releasing on August 19th
“Presenting a sound that is equal parts energetic and smooth, the group is a do-it-all creative force, creating all of their beats, rhymes and music videos in house. Their latest offering ‘Shake’ features sleek, focused rhymes and infectious production, paired with an engaging new visual directed by the group’s own Ace Pro.” – EARMILK
“The Homies have quietly been climbing to the top of the indie music scene, with singles and visuals such as “Home Alone” and “The Come Down”, which they gave fans earlier this summer. Known for their own unique individualism, Honest Living embodies each personality flawlessly from Ace Pro’s creative vision, 2FoWoyne’s distinct production, and Shloob and Quiiso’s melodic flows.” – Broadway World
“The Homies deliver top tier bars showcasing their natural unique talent” – RESPECT Mag
“9 Exciting Acts to Catch at Forecastle This Year…Everything that they do is smooth, with a relaxed creatively that still hits hard. All things considered, their superpower is the diversity of their styles, how each member is different, bringing new energy and ideas into various moments. That’s the thing about a collective done right: it’s never gets boring, because there’s too much talent.” – Louisville City Beat
“Louisville rappers respect the artistry of their peers, love to collaborate with one another, and love to rep the ‘Ville. The next group to pop from the 502 is none other than The Homies. The Homies consist of four individualistic, multi-talented artists: Quiiso, Shloob, Ace Pro, and 2forwOyNE.” – SHEESH Media
Masters of the DIY grind, Louisville rap crew The Homies know how to have a good time. Today, the 4-man collective comprised of Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso share the new video for “Thirsty.” Produced by group member 2forwOyNE, “Thirsty” combines elements of two late ’00s rap cuts–using a sped-up sample of Drake’s “Houstatlantavegas” and vocals of Missy Elliott’s “Ching-A-Ling”–into a cohesive and incredibly catchy whole. Directed by Ace Pro, the video has a breezy summer vibe, as The Homies play beach volleyball with a group of fine ladies. The follow-up to “Shake,” which arrived with a Hype Williams-esque video, “Thirsty” is a highlight from It’s A Lot Going On, The Homies’ next album, and it arrives shortly after they hosted celebrities like Jack Harlow, Cole Bennett, Master P, and many more for their annual Celebrity Kickball Tournament in Louisville.
The perfect recipe to cool down the dog days of summer, It’s A Lot Going On compiles 14 brand new tracks into a sleek and boisterous package. Ping-ponging from hard-hitting trap on tracks like opener “Out Here” and the funky “Had To,” to effervescent rhythmic anthems like “Goat Mami” and “Trouble,” the album is buoyed by the chemistry of the four artists. Marked by playful lyricism and easygoing melodies, It’s A Lot Going On percolates with creative energy and signals even bigger things ahead for the Derby City natives. With appearances from Marzz, Jace, and Australian artist Mason Dane, who The Homies met on a recent sojourn Down Under, It’s A Lot Going On arrives on August 19th.
The “Thirsty” video arrives shortly after The Homies announced that they’ll be joining their Private Garden co-founder Jack Harlow on his “Come Home The Kids Miss You Tour” this fall. Also featuring support from the City Girls, the 26-date tour gives Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso the chance to show off their performance chops in front of arena-sized audiences. The tour kicks off on September 5th in Cincinnati, just a few miles up the road from The Homies’ hometown. Tickets are available now.
With much more music on deck and an unshakeable passion for their craft, The Homies are ready to follow in the footsteps of their friend Jack Harlow from the Louisville underground to the rap mainstream. Sit back, and watch their rise.

The Homies, comprised of multi-talented individuals with a unique sound and perspective, are a budding Hip-Hop group based out of Louisville, KY. Part of the Private Garden collective, a group of Kentucky creatives co-created by Grammy Nominated artist Jack Harlow, The Homies consists of Quiiso, Shloob, Ace Pro, and 2forwOyNE. The group prides themselves for being a creative force, producing all their music in-house, as well as their creative direction.
Formed in Louisville out of a shared passion for music and creativity, The Homies have earned high-profile co-signs, earning praise from iconic DJs DJ Drama and Don Cannon, and opening on tour for artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Bryson Tiller, and Waka Flocka Flame. The Homies scored a cult hit with “Leaf Wraps,” a Jack Harlow-featuring single that scored over 5 million streams on Spotify, and later appeared on their 2018 debut album Umbrellas. They followed up Umbrellas with last year’s Honest Living, home to the single “White Lies” (3.7 million Spotify streams). With the follow-up to Honest Living on the way, The Homies showed off their live chops at Louisville’s own Forecastle Festival in May, and they recently finished a tour performing several dates across Australia.
