The 1990’s garnered many R&B groups but none quite like Jodeci. It was an era dominated by New Jack Swing where Jodeci married R&B soul and Hip Hop to create a sound that is classic and timeless even today. You can’t talk about R&B, soul, and New Jack Swing without mentioning Jodeci, the Bad Boys of R&B; the Black Guns and Roses. “Forever My Lady,” Jodeci’s first album introduced us to two sets of brothers, Cedric & Joel Hailey and Donald & Dalvin DeGrate, all respectively known by their stage names: K-Ci, JoJo, DeVante Swing, and Mr. Dalvin.
K-Ci of Jodeci and the duo K-Ci and JoJo recently sat down with AllHipHop to discuss Jodeci’s church upbringing and its influence on Jodeci and K-Ci and JoJo’s sound, Jodeci’s most iconic moment, DeVante Swing’s genius and much more.
