THE BRONX - A popular rap duo from Parkchester is making moves in the hip-hop world.

Kwame and Michael Grayson are identical twins and call themselves "The Twin Towers." Both men are 6 feet 9 inches tall.

The duo's love for hip-hop started back in 1994 when they attended Camp Mariah, a summer camp sponsored by Mariah Carey.

"They used to pound on the wall and make beats and stuff. It was instantly interesting," says Kwame. "One person was rapping and other person was making a beat. I saw that and secretly I wrote my own rhymes so I can be a part of stuff like that."

From there, they took their lyrics back to their Parkchester neighborhood.

The Twin Towers currently have four albums in circulation and have already met well-known names in music business.
