And it just started from there. I was the original lead vocalist. Tony Tone spit rhymes and X-Man spit rhymes; but on the album it was all me. They had background parts and stuff like that. And The Detector, he did the production on the first album. We all worked together, but he was the technical expert. You know, the engineer with the mixing skills.
We just had the creative ideas, like whatever loops we wanted to use, and he helped us put it together like that. Was D. Well, DJ D. They did their own thing and got a deal with Polygram.
Ok, let me take it back a bit further… were you born and raised in Detroit, or did you move there? Nah, I was born and raised here. Ok, so what was the hip-hop scene like when you were growing up, there? I mean, there was, but that was up in New York. We had the funk, George Clinton and all that.
Then we had the techno music, with Cybotron and all these guys. We had that dance, techno-type going on. Because other than that, it was just like some club shit or some basement party shit.
But in Detroit, it was more a dance music thing we gave the world. Most of my hip-hop experience came when I was a teenager and we moved to Akron Ohio. My mother got married to my stepfather, Dip RIP. We went down there, and then my high school is where we really got exposed to all the hip-hop.
And it was the shit that was going on in New York, live, real-time shit. So we really jumped on it at that point. Because we had much more fun back then. More pure, more live.
Even in our crew, we made sure we specialized, where everybody did something better than everybody else. It was crazy. Who were they? They were like the best dance group around, and these dudes were seniors in high school. I was just in seventh grade. We came out and they went crazy; and it all started from that. Yeah, I remember you having dancers in your videos… is that something you would still do today?
Having dancers in your shows, etc? Yeah, I would love that. I love that shit, it takes me back to the essence of it.
Of course, it depends on the venue and the circumstances and all that. Ok, so let's talk about Bentley Records Nah, fuck them. Let me tell you about Jorlands Records first. Fuck Bentley Records. Jorlands was the one that put up the money and supported our dream. You need to try and do something with it. I was like, ok! I had never really been in a professional studio environment like that before. CD players. Music Sheets. Concert Tickets. Groovy Objects books, mags, t-shirts Sell Compare.
