Los Angeles based Hip-Hop trio J.J. Fad has reunited to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling debut album, Supersonic – The Album.
With a new management contract with Miami-based Uncle Louie Management, the 80’s girl group is planning a new album and a tour this year.
First up will be the re-release of Supersonic, which landed J.J. Fad a spot in history.
In addition to their impressive sales, the album’s title track has the distinction of being the first Grammy nominated record by a female Hip-Hop Group.
The album, produced by Dr. Dre and fellow N.W.A. member DJ Yella, and originally released through Ruthless Records, will be re-released on February 19 via the Uncle Louie Music Group.
MC J.B., Baby-D, and Sassy C have also made a return to the studio to craft their first album since 1992’s Not Just A Fad.
The album was released just four years after their success with Supersonic.
Not Just A Fad failed to resonate with fans of the pop-rap group, which lead to the group’s demise.
Now, more than 15 years later, the group is hoping that a renewed interest in their era of Hip-Hop will prove a more accepting environment for their music.
In preparation for the as-yet-untitled album, J.J. Fad is planning a reunion tour with the surviving members of the Original Fat Boys, Prince Markie Dee and Kool Rock-ski, who are also managed by Uncle Louie Management.
Tour dates are currently being finalized.
