He left and she lit up either a piece of cardboard or his sneakers in the bathtub in one of the five bathrooms in the six-bedroom, million dollar mansion.
She came back outside and smashed up three of his cars and drove away.
Jodeci pretty much lived the entire good, bad, and ugly of the music industry. They jumped in a car from Charlotte, Dalvin hopped in the trunk and didn’t tell nobody, and they went to New York, Puffy shows up, they caught a deal with Uptown, De Vante became one of the most underrated and influential producers, like ever, after 1995’s album, Jodeci took a hiatus, K-Ci and Jo Jo released a string of albums to increasingly less and less fanfare (did you know they had FIVE albums? But what about their early lives as gospel singers? Prior to, though, their last contribution as a group was in 1995, and yet, the Jodeci legacy looms large over Black music. Watching De Vante come up with songs like “Freek ‘n U,” easily one of the greatest songs every created, would be worth the price of admission. While this isn’t necessarily a good thing, Suge Knight is pretty much a vital part of your entire childhood if you grew up in the 80s and 90s whether you like it or not. Let’s just give De Vante his own biopic De Vante left North Carolina first trying to make his way as a producer, tried to get to Prince, created the Jodeci sound, worked with rappers and singers, got robbed, pistol whipped, and Death Row gave him cover and fear, rumored Mike Tyson interventions, a much more sexualized and raunchy album in 1995’s heavily Cali-influenced It had great singles, but it was also the end of Jodeci after I’m guessing all of the drugs, alcohol, violence, and shenanigans imploded the group. K-Ci and Jo Jo had an entire second career and lots of rehab Do you realize that K-Ci and Jojo had FIVE albums, post Jodeci? But both of the Haley brothers battled alcoholism, even ending up on reality shows chronicling the addiction. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Weekly updates about all the pop culture, race & politics, Bougie Black People™ shit, and other grand tomfoolery we cover here on VSB.
There are artists who are influenced by them today. I want to see De Vante locked into becoming the producer he was. Then he seemed to get lost in the drugs and trappings of fame leading to various ODD and erratic situations, including “the hair” and an altercation at Subway. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. Plus early heads up about new tees, new contributors, and our events.
Pebbles (Rochelle Aytes) comes across very one-dimensional, almost cartoonish in her villainy.
It feels like a child’s perspective in relaying a story of her wicked step sister.
Perhaps that says much about the emotional immaturity of the girls.
was released on May 28, 1991 by Uptown/MCA Records.
It’s beyond serious and deserves speculation, discussion and action: Really, here and now in 2012, where’s the justice?!
By now, you’ve got to know that our country is in an uproar.
Look, I’m glad “The New Edition Story” didn’t end like “The Temptations Movie”, which, I mean, SHIT; that was sad. Look, nobody thinks Dalvin contributed anything aside from being attractive. He played drums at the end of that video and said, “that’s what I do.” Awesome. YES THAT STEVIE J WAS A SESSION MUSICIAN FOR JODECI. Even in its demise, the Swing Mob sold you, like, a trillion records. Death Row Records If you’ll remember De Vante, in particular, ended up working pretty heavily with Death Row Records.
