Bell Biv DeVoe is a direct result of the hugely successful vocal quintet New Edition. Merging the irresistible sounds of hip-hop beats, New Jack Swing and R&B harmonies, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe started fresh with a more street-oriented approach to contemporary R&B. The result was the group’s explosive debut album Poison, which sold more than 4 million copies.

With its 1992 debut “It’s About Time,” SWV has scored a string of Top 10 R&B hits. That established the group as one of the most popular R&B groups of the ‘90s. The group’s name is an acronym for “sisters with voices”. Include three school friends Coko, Taj and Lelee.

Coming out of the early ‘80s New York rap scene, Whodini was one of the first rap groups to add a straight R&B twist to its music. This laid the groundwork for the New Jack Swing movement. The group features rappers Jalil Hutchins, John “Ecstasy” Fletcher and legendary DJ Drew “Grandmaster Dee” Carter.

EPMD, the duo of Erik Sermon and Parrish Smit, was among the best in hip-hop’s underground scene during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.  They had a feel for a good groove, and created numerous hip-hop classics including “It’s My Thing,” “You Gots to Chill,” “Get the Bozack,” “Strictly Business” and “Rampage.”
