EPMD is an American hip hop group from Brentwood, New York. The group’s name is a concatenation of the members’ name “E” and “PMD” or an acronym for “Erick and Parrish Making Dollars” (later “Erick and Parrish Millennium Ducats”), referencing its members, emcees Erick Sermon (“E”) and Parrish Smith (“PMD”). The group has been active for more than 20 years (1986–present), and is one of the most prominent acts in East coast hip hop. Diamond J, DJ K La Boss, and DJ Scratch were DJs for the group.
“You Gots to Chill” is the second single by EPMD from their album Strictly Business. It reached number 22 on the U.S. R&B chart. The song prominently features a sample from More Bounce to the Ounce by Zapp.
