Unlike some manufactured groups whose members are strangers before a record label brings them together, the fellas of Hamilton Park said they’re more like the R&B groups of yesteryear.
“Our story is so similar to what older groups were," said group member Mr. Marcus. "Before we were able to see any [results], we went through it. We got to know each other. We argued about girls. We argued about music.”
The group, comprised of four Atlanta friends, has been together for years and consider themselves family.
“Just going through the whole artist development thing, it’ll teach you how to bond with one another. It’ll teach you how to have a concrete foundation with one another because if you can suffer with each other than you can reign with each other as well,” said Anthony.
"We stand firm in our principles and the fact that the family that prays together stays together,” he added.
