 Musical career
The group started out as the “Hard Hitters”, but changed
their name to Travis Porter in late 2008 to be more marketable.
Two of their biggest hits “Black Boy White Boy” and "All
the Way Turnt Up" also turned out to be huge controversy in
their career. “All the Way Turnt Up” caused controversy
with Roscoe Dash. After Roscoe Dash came up with the song and asked
Travis Porter to be featured on it Travis Porter added the song to
their mixtape causing fans to believe it was not Roscoe Dash’s
song, but Travis Porters’. Soon Roscoe Dash released another
version of the song through his label Interscope Records featuring
Soulja Boy. The song “Black Boy White Boy” caused
a bit of controversy with Young Dro because he and label-mate Yung
L.A. say that the song title was initially theirs. There has also
been rumors that Travis Porter has a feud with fellow Atlanta group
Cloud 9 who has the underground hit single "Shawty Shake Yo
Ass". Cloud 9 confirmed this rumor in a recent interview and
