Trouble City won the 'Channel Prize' for hip-hop in September 2007, receiving the highest rank in OurStage's Hip Hop Channel, the sites most popular music genre. OurStage offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to Trouble City (a duo comprised of Lorenzo 'Renzo The Kid' Marshall, Jr., 24 from Waterbury, CT and Patrick 'Pat-G' Gouch, also 24 from Hartford, CT) to work with one of their favorite artists. The humble group with infectious beats and a heart-wrenching backstory met with Grammy-winning artist John Legend and received his feedback on their tracks.
