Born into upper middle class families, PRC Ning and đoke $achok are neither young nor parents. They rap about how life in Singapore can sometimes be an uphill struggle for both rich and poor.

Born in China, PRC Ning came to Singapore to spread his communist ideology. However, he did not expect to fall in love with trap. Now he spreads his gangster ideology of '流氓生活方式'.

Young boy dre took on the moniker of "đoke $achok" after learning that these terms were honorific titles in the Tamil and Malay languages respectively.

The duo write their songs in several languages and their self-titled debut discusses how a seemingly first-world country can be ghetto too.
