Info:Platinum Souls are Ricardo FLO (For Lord Only) and Ms. Ty Scott, who reside in Atlanta, Georgia. An anointed gumbo of hip-hop and poetry, the duo also adds to their flavor, a dash of reggae and soul.

Start
Since they united in January 2002, Platinum Souls, which means: One Million Souls for the Kingdom of God, has embarked on an aggressive journey- to positively impact a hurting and dying society through their music. They are highly respected and requested in churches, colleges, and in the secular arenas, internationally.

Performances
They have shared stages with: CeCe Winans, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, DC Talk, Out of Eden, Tonex, Canton Jones, J. Moss, Nicole C. Mullin, Bone Crusher, Bubba Sparxxx, Clipse, and Scarface.

Pentagon
And, as if that were not enough, Platinum Souls were also among a handful of artists chosen to be the first rappers ever to perform at The United States Pentagon.

Interviewed
Platinum Souls was interviewed by Chuck D (Public Enemy) on his radio show "On The Real, Off The Record" XM Satellite Radio Station, Channel 167 on Sunday January 20th, 2008.
As the duo explains: "Chuck asked the right questions, God gave the right answers. Listeners worldwide got the opportunity to hear another side of Hip Hop. [...] How did we get on the air with Chuck D? Favor. In 2004, we met Mr. Chuck because we shared a stage with him at the University of Florida. He remembered us, and 4 years later he put us on. That's God opening doors that no man can close."

Mixtapes
Furthermore, they have infiltrated the airwaves with their Unexpected Mixes, a series of 7 mix tapes the duo has used to build anticipation for their upcoming album release.

Videos
The power team filmed their first video in 2006, for the song: "Til 6 in da Morning". The high-energy party anthem is the first single released on the groups label: Platinum Souls, Inc. Records. Directed by hip-hop legend: Christopher Play Martin, the video received rotation on major networks such as B.E.T. (Black Entertainment Television), The Word Network and JCTV.

Awards
Due to their unyielding commitment to spreading the gospel, Platinum Souls has received the following list of honors:
- 2008: YGEA Awards (Youth Gospel Entertainment & Arts Awards): "Best Hip Hop Group"
- 2006: Atlanta Hip Hop Film Festival: "Video of the Year" winners (for "Til 6 in da Morning")
- 2005: Featured in the REAL Biblezine, a new Bible (by Thomas Nelson Publishers) for the urban community
- 2005: Gospel Choice Award nominee
- 2004: Atlanta Urban Legends Showcase winners
- 2004 & 2003: Holy Hip Hop Awards winners
- 2004: Urban Gospel Industry (UGI) winner
- 2004: Whats the Word Magazine winner
- 2002: Silver Mic Award winners (for the best Pizza Hut jingles of the year).

Nominations
The duo was nominated for:
- 2008: The Gospel Choice Awards Atlanta - Best in Holy Hip Hop

TV
Furthermore, in March 2006, they made history by being among one of the first hip hop/ poetry groups ever to appear on T.B.N. (the Trinity Broadcast Network), as guests on Praise the Lord, hosted by: CeCe Winans.

Humble
Yet, in the midst of it all, they remain humble and focused on saving souls. Platinum Souls refuses to forsake their integrity for success, as too many of the artists they encounter have done. Instead, they prefer to specialize in doing great exploits for God, delivering their message with boldness and authority.

Relationship
Despite the fact that they know their doctrine is not always accepted, they refuse to dilute it. Even in the clubs, you will find them saying: J.E.S.U.S. C.H.R.I.S.T.- Jesus ChristThe Way, The Truth, The Life, has set me free! But, they are definitely Not About Religion. Instead, they encourage others to Ride Wit Us, as they promote the importance of a personal relationship with God, and not the man-made regulations that are often taught as keys to salvation.

Church
Platinum Souls is atypical in both the hip-hop and poetry arenas. They are submitted and serving under the ministry covering of Pastor Hart Ramsey Sr. Pastor and Founder of Northview Christian Church in Dothan, Alabama.

Production
Platinum Souls co-produced Rev. Derrick Hill's "Created To Rule" with Big Ran. The CD is released on October 9th, 2004 and is a blend of Rev. Hill's sermons blended into songs. It features The Remnant, Red Baron, PK3, Jamal McGhee and Erica Dawson.

Singles
In September 2007 the duo released the single "Dey Don't Know". As of December 1st, 2007, "Dey Don't Know" made it's debut on the Billboard Charts (Billboard.com) in two categories:
- #11 on the "Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Singles Sales"
- #99 on the "Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs"

Albums
The duo released their first mixtape "Unexpected mixes Volume 1" in October 2002. After 7 mixtapes Platinum Souls will release their first full length album entitled "Hybrid" on Platinum Souls, Inc. Records in 2008. This will also contain the single "Til 6 in da Morning" (2006).
