    What about the force MDS – the first group to combine R&B & Hip Hop or maybe the Deele !!!

    • Desmond Alvies July 15, 2014

      Force MDs would be a great one – I understand much of that group is prematurely deceased unfortunately

      I totally agree ! Not only was he a solo artist and in a group, but his sound is on other groups’ songs.

  • Charlene July 15, 2014

    What about INTRO/ Kenny G Love Greene one of the most talented writers of R and B in the 90’s. Who tied with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for song writer of the year! This story needs to be told!
