They set up dates with "Candy" (Shondrella Avery) and "Faith" (Beatrice Rosen), but once they meet the girls and realize they're classy and that they might actually have to take them to dinner, the guys immediately cancel the date and leave.
The Atlanta duo¹s current smash album 'U.S.A.' was entirely remixed and retooled by acclaimed underground mixmaster Michael '5000' Watts, incorporating the psychedelic sound of 'screw' to create an all new musical experience.
