Botany Boyz are a rap crew from Houston, Texas. They are the owners of the labels Big Shot Records and Plat-Num Productions.

History

One of the foremost contributors to the Houston screw scene, the Botany Boyz were part of the Screwed Up Click in the late 1990s. Their first album, "Thought of Many Ways", was released on their own label, Big Shot Records, in 1997; its follow-up, "Forever Botany", was released in 1999 and managed to crack the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts at #99 in 2000 [ [http://wm05.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:wpfuxqehldje~T5 Billboard] , Allmusic.com] as the Houston rap scene became more popular across the US. Since then, the members have concentrated more on solo projects, with C-Note being the most successful.
