Crazy Town is an American rap rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1995 by Bret Mazur and Seth Binzer. Crazy Town is best known for their 2000 hit single, “Butterfly”, which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and helped their debut album, The Gift of Game sell over 1.5 million units.

In January 2017, after a year of hiatus from the band, Epic announced through his Facebook post that he will no longer tour with the band. Epic intends to still be involved with Crazy Town, though not as a band member. Following Mazur’s departure, Rick Dixon, Nick Diiorio and Kevin Kapler also left the band in early April. Shifty decided to add an “X” next to the band’s name. When asked about the letter’s significance on their Instagram account, the band stated “the X is used by gangs to symbolize a territory that has just been won”.
