The duo Christion. Their CD "Ghetto Cyrano" is one of my all-time favorites.

I'm not sure what happened with the other fellow in Christion, but Allen Anthony is still with Rocafella Records, and he's the guy who sang the recent hit "Alright", with the remix featuring Freeway (although it was marketed to make folks think it was originally Freeways song :huh ).

Allen's solo album, "Trial and Error" is due for release soon... I don't know the release date though.

*Digable:

Butterfly ( aka Ishmael) is Coko from SWV's baby daddy, and more recently, moved west and is the leader of a fairly new band called Cherrywine.

Doodlebug: I'll get back with you on that one, I heard news on him VERY recently, but I can't recall what it was at the moment.

Ladybug: She doesn't go by that name anymore, but she just released an independent album that I can't recall the name of right now... as soon as I can get the deets, I'll report them

*Christopher Williams is beating some poor woman near you ( naw, I'm kidding... kinda :-P ) He released an independent album sometime in 2002.


*Oran... is still making club appearances and performing.

*Al B. Sure is sitting around, not making money so that his baby mama, Kim Porter can't dog him for child support like she's doing Puffy. :-cre
At one point, he was doing A&R at Universal, but I'm not sure if he still is. He might still be producing here and there with his cousin Kyle West, and if they are, it's for some artist who hasn't had a hit yet. He had of string of hits as a producer/writer for Tevin Campbell, but we all know what's become of his careeer, so... :doh

Christopher Williams has been doing the play circut, he&#39;s now part of the cast of "If these Hips Could Talk"; last year he was in the play based on Michael Baidsen&#39;s book, Men cry in the Dark. I saw that one, he still looks good.

Shanice is married to Flex, they&#39;re having they&#39;re second child.

Kim Porter is Al B. Sure&#39;s baby&#39;s mama? For real?

I want to know what happened to Ex-Girlfriend myself. I found they&#39;re tape the other day. They were the original Destiny&#39;s Child, X marks the spot spoke of independent woman way before Beyonce.. One of the member of Ex-G named Monica I went to high school with. Represent JFK High NYC!

Where is Full Force? And the Boys, Johnny Kemp (He got paid on Friday then split).

I read where Arrested Development are getting back together, Speech just sued Fox over the AD name; Fox has a TV show of the same name.

I want to know what happened to the rest of the Revolution, Prince is faboulous, but he has never been the same w/o the Revolution, NPG can&#39;t even hang as far as I&#39;m concerned... (with the exception of Rosie Gaines, and Sheila E.)

Where is Appolonia and Vanity?

I know that one of the Force MD&#39;s died a couple of years ago from a heart attack.

Girl, I know, I hate those plays also, but someone had an extra ticket and I used to love me some Christopher Williams back in the day, so I went. Allen Payne (G-Money for New Jack City) was in it also. They both looked so damm good!

Boy did I think those girls were BAD in the day!!!

Appolonia just completed her degree in filmaking.

I saw Vanity on some program some time ago and she said she was a born again. They mentioned Prince to her and she had to walk off the stage in tears. It was pretty sad.

Man do you remember "Nasty girl" when it came out. That was the joint in the day.

Does anyone remember a singer called "LaLa", she sang "If you love me just a little tonight..."?

Lalah Hathaway sings a lot of jazz now...she released a collabo CD with pianist Joe Sample.

Dee-Lite sang "Groove Is In The Heart"--Lady Miss Kier is a club DJ(which is what she originally was), and Towa Tei is all over the place, not only DJ-ing but producing tracks for a variety of people--including Bebel Gilberto, Astrud&#39;s daughter. He even released a few indefinable solo albums.

The artist is just called LaLa and the song came out in 1998. I guess I will keep on my search

Xscape mounted a comeback at one time. One of the girls of 702 left their group briefly to join Xscape because Tamika of Xscape had become an evangelist and decided to go gospel. But then that deal fell through and 702 got back together. Kandi of Xscape is a producer and she released a solo album. Kandi produced a great deal of TLC songs including No Scrubs.

Hey there you all! This is a great thread!

-I have the newest Kashif double disc CD..... It is totally awesome! If you are a Kashif "fan", don&#39;t really like that word, from back in the day you will love this dual disc because it has his first CD on one disc and his new material, which STILL sounds good, on the other. Those that really dig his music may recall that in addition to his songs with vocals he also had incredible instrumentals..... Well, on the new disc there is a hot instrumental!!!!!! I :heart me some Kashif and am glad to welcome the brotha back!

-Some of you all listen to and enjoy the same type of music I dig!

-Read on another site that Teena Marie is coming out with a new CD in the summer.... She has signed with Cash Money/Universal ..... I wonder what happened to the CD "Black Rain" that she&#39;s been teasing us with for years now?

Where is:

-Enchantment? I&#39;d love to find the CD to the album with the song, "Where Do We Go From Here?"

-Roy Ayers? Looking for "You Send Me" on CD......

-Stephanie Mills? I know she&#39;s doing plays but where is she musically? I have heard a single recently on the radio.... I know it was her, I know that voice!

-Lo Key

-Miles J (Jay or Jaye)

-Confunkshun

-The Barkays

*Why can&#39;t Chante Moore make it? She has a very beautiful singing voice to me. Much better than some of these no singing pop stars like Britney..... Okay, let me behave.....

Esthero and Doc are no more. Esthero (the chick) is supposedly working on new material. The cd is said to be titled "nearly civilized&#39;. You can go to NearlyCivilized.com to find out more. There are lots of random singles featuring Esthero out there to dig up.

Esthero and Doc were great together. Too bad they didn&#39;t put out another CD. When groups break up, the individual projects usually aren&#39;t as good; most times, they really suck the Big One. Guess I&#39;ll have to live with just Breath From Another until they come to their senses (hopefully). <sigh>

I thought I was the only one who remembered TajaSeville – “love is contageous…well it’s alright” used to be my SONG. I drove my mother crazy listening to it over and over again.

What ever happened to Wendy and Lisa? – They had that great song out after Prince and the Revolution broke up called “OOOh are you my baby”

Souls of Mischief – Is still with the Hyroglythics crew. They have put out at least 5 albums since 93 to infinity. They all look really good! Tajai has put out a couple of solo albums. (I’m still holding onto the dream that Opio and I will eventually get married and have a bunch of babbies. :heart )

The Boys – The boys have grown up into very good looking men. They live in Africa and they are now called “Suns of Light”
Here’s the link: http://www.sunsoflight.com/
They have a weekly chat session on their website.
Speaking of the boys does anybody remember Larenz Tate in the video "Happy"? He was the boyfriend who moved to another town. Larenz was even fine at 14 years old.

The Jets – I saw a where are they now special on TV about "The Jets" They all have regular jobs now. I think a couple of them are high school teachers.

Salt-n-Pepa – Just won a court battle against Herbie Luvbug over some money about the hit song “Whatta man” I think Salt was going to release an album called "Salt of the Earth"

Vanity – After she lost both of her kidneys to drugs, found Christ & became a minister. Here is her website.

Where is Black Sheep?
I heard that Mr Lawnge (DJ) was still producing... for whome, I don&#39;t know. Dres(MC) is still trying to get put back on and is a serial deadbeat dad.
http://jm.g.free.fr/smileys/naughty.gif Shame on him! Wasn&#39;t Chi Ali his little brother? Or was that just a rumor since they looked so much alike? Where&#39;s that little bugger?
Dres was Chi Ali&#39;s older brother.
Chi Ali got 40 years in prison for some kind of violent crime. I&#39;m not sure but I think he&#39;s in Rikers. [/b][/quote]

I know Dino, the lead singer of H-Town, died (along with his girlfriend) in a car crash sometime in the past couple of years. Supposedly H-Town was trying to put a new album together at the time.

I think Tracy Spencer is singing background on Kanye West&#39;s The College Dropout CD. I think the song is Never Let Me Down. 8)

The Joe Sample f. Layla Hathaway CD is one of my all time favorite CD&#39;s. It&#39;s a must have for jazz lovers. :thumbsup

Kameelah, the lead singer from 702 left the group to go to Total (not Xscape). She later reunited w/ 702 because she wasn&#39;t pleased with the Total&#39;s "lesbian-ish" image. :doh She seems like a spoiled brat to me.

What ever happened to:

Cool C Hoo Hooo...ya got it...that Glamorous Life!

Cool C is locked up for robbing a bank in Philly.

Rakim was still rapping and doing shows btwn &#39;89 and 2000... I saw him a few times... he puts on a nice show.

Eric B. ain&#39;t doing jack but posting up in the clubs still trying to get some shine from his former fame. Let it go, Eric, let it go!

I wish I knew where Milira was... she could sing!

Mista isn&#39;t a group anymore they are still doing things in the music industry but not together, here&#39;s what they are up to from a post by Brandon last year at an Elecktra message board:

"Byron Levar Reeder: Now 23, Byron is still working on various
eclectic styles of r&b music and developing his own artists.

Darryl Dwayne Allen: Now 22, Darryl is recording music on a more
r&b/hip-hop edge, but has also focused on settling down with his
family. Last year, Darryl became the proud father of a beautiful
baby boy.

Bobby Marcel Wilson: Now 23, Bobby is recording songs for a solo
project, in the genre of r&b/soul, and has caught the attention of
several large record labels. Bobby still works with Akira on music
today.

Brandon Akira Brown: Now 20, Akira produces pop music under his
production company, The Other Floor, Inc. (www.theotherfloor.com).
He is producing his own artists and is also producing for other
artists. His solo project, is slated to start prodution this summer." :-)

Okay. I finally got tired of asking - and others asking - what happened to Troop, so I started searching. This is OLD, but at least it&#39;s something:

Mario, B2K, Tyrese Get Songs From Former Troop Member
By Jerry Armor

(8/3/02, 10 a.m. ET) -- Steve Russell, also known as Lil&#39; Steve from the late &#39;80s/early &#39;90s R&B group Troop, has re-emerged as a songwriter for the likes of Mario, B2K, and Tyrese.

Russell co-wrote B2K&#39;s "Gots Ta Be" that peaked at Number 13 on Billboard&#39;s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. Though Russell penned songs on Troop projects, he said it has taken a long time for him to get a big break writing for other acts. "After eight years, I finally got a hit record with the B2K single &#39;Gots Ta Be.&#39; I wrote and produced that with some friends of mine, the Underdogs. So, I&#39;m just back networking, and I got a lot of more songs coming out. So I&#39;m just putting myself back out there, letting everybody know Lil&#39; Steve is back."

In addition to "Gots Ta Be," Russell also co-authored the group&#39;s next single "Why I Love You" and "Understanding," two songs on Mario&#39;s album; and a song for Tyrese&#39;s J Records debut slated to be released later this year.

In 1990, Troop&#39;s ballad "All I Do Is Think Of You" hit Number One on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. The group released several albums, including its 1988 self-titled debut, 1999&#39;s Attitude, 1992&#39;s Deepa, 1994&#39;s Lil&#39; Sumpin&#39; Sumpin&#39;, and 1998&#39;s Mayday.

That was from 2 years ago. Maybe Steve did something on B2K&#39;s most recent album too. http://jm.g.free.fr/smileys/spamafote.gif Can&#39;t find anything on what happened to the other 4. :-P

that is too funny becz i often wonder why someone is in a group who doesn&#39;t ever seem to know how to sing. my answer to this question is that maybe he/she started the group, i.e., otis williams of the temptations...

ADINA HOWARD: Goes Back to the Grind
by Kenya Yarbrough

Adina Howard
(Mar. 15, 2004) The last thing many of us remember about singer Adina Howard is her coy pose, leaning on a luxury car in some hot short shorts. She hit the scene in 1995 with her debut CD “Do You Wanna Ride?” which featured her biggest hit “Freak Like Me.”
She prepared her sophomore set, “Welcome to Fantasy Island,” in 1997, but the disc was abruptly shelved and never saw the light of day. Storing the album away in a vault didn’t silence her talent, though. One single from the disc was already granted to the soundtrack for the movie “Woo.” Without a label and without a single, Howard’s track “T-Shirt and Panties” made it’s way to the airwaves and became an underground hit.

Seven years later, and though her biggest hits linger in the background and appear on ‘90s compilations, Adina Howard is making her return with the album “The 2nd Coming,” with the hot first single “Nasty Grind.” As you can tell from the titles, the Michigan native may be older and wiser, but she’s still not afraid of the risqué.

“We’re sexual beings and people have sex everyday,” Howard said in defense of her subject matter. “Sometimes they need a little music to go along with it.”

And as far as those who find it controversial, Howard says she really doesn’t pay the criticism any mind.

“I don’t deal with it. I just let people go through their changes. I have a life to live and I don’t have time to deal with people not agreeing with what I do for a living. I may not agree with what they do for a living, but I’m not going to jump on their back and ride them about it because that’s how they make their money, that’s what they do. I don’t have time to deal with it. I have other things that I have to deal with that are much more important,” she said.

Howard explained that the criticism of her openness to sexuality will hardly stop her from doing her thing, and neither did the career disruption she had in 1997. She explained that she was merely a victim of the politics of the business, and told us that although her sophomore offering never was, she was not bitter or discouraged. After all, one track from the disc kept her name on the lips of DJs throughout the country. Interestingly, “T-Shirt and Panties” was written by actor/comedian /singer Jamie Foxx.

“He played the track for me and I fell in love with the production,” Howard said. She asked Foxx to do the song as a demo. He did, played it for her over the phone and she says then, she really wanted the track. “I first fell in love with the track, but once it was all put together, I was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is my song. I gotta have it.’” The track became an underground hit.

“I guess people heard it on the movie and went and bought the soundtrack. It never became a single – radio and clubs just picked it up and started playing it. Now I perform it everywhere I go,” she said. With the audiences warmed up with their old favorites, Adina Howard is preparing to introduce her second album appropriately titled “The 2nd Coming.” She’s found a new musical home and says that she’s glad she took the break away, but very happy to be back.

“I walked away from the business for a moment and it took me awhile to say, ‘OK, let’s do it again,’” she said of her return. “I didn’t like [the business then]. I didn’t like the people I was doing business with. I didn’t like the business of music, the way that it was handled. People really didn’t want to help and educate me and help me learn the business. They wanted to keep me in the dark so that they could keep taking from me. I was in a business of takers, so I had to get away from that.”

Fortunately for fans, it was them who really brought her back. Howard said that her supporters and played a major role in her return to the industry.

“They would approach me and ask when I was going to do another album, another song, and they would say that they missed me. I felt like I owed it to them to give it another shot and give them something that they could enjoy. So my manager and I set out on a path to find a label that would help me with my vision in putting a project together.”

Whatever fans take from or read into the title of the album is fine by Howard. The play on words is pretty much the theme of the new album. Howard described that while she isn’t straying from the style that made her famous, the new disc, due in stores April 6, is a lot more sexually subtle.

“To come back out into the industry, it’s about keeping it familiar to a certain degree,” Howard said. People are comfortable with being able to identify me with that sexual music, which is fine. But this go ‘round it’s a little more subtle. It’s not so blatantly in your face. This time it’s about candlelight and wine instead of Boone’s Farm and weed.”

I just "discovered" Rosie Gaines while surfin youtube. was watching prince&#39;s diamond and pearls video and wondered (again) who this woman was with this spinechillin&#39; voice.

some kind soul said it was rosie gaines......so of course that lead to finding her myspace page Rosie Gaines (http://www.myspace.com/rosiegaines)

:wub: :wub: :wub: needless to say she has a new fan.

i LOVE this woman&#39;s vocals!!!
