Originally formed in 2006 as the Hard Hitters, the trio officially switched to the enigmatic moniker Travis Porter in 2008. MCs Ali (Lakeem Mattox), Quez (Donquez Woods), and Strap (Harold Duncan) grew up together in Decatur, Georgia, and got together with the hope of taking over the rap world from the underground up. The irreverent group began to cultivate a strong Internet presence, releasing videos through its YouTube page and issuing four mixtapes, Who Is Travis Porter?, Im a Differenter, Im a Differenter 2, and Streets R’Us, in 2009. After releasing three more mixtapes, Proud 2 Be a Problem, I Am Travis Porter, and Differenter Gang, in 2010, the band decided to sign with Jive. ~ Gregory Heaney
