Remember Arrested Development?

Arrested Development was a rap group that pioneered in the development (no pun intended) of the growth of hip-hop. Members included Speech, Montsho Eshe, One Love, Tasha Larae, Rasadon, Baba Oje, JJ Boogie, Za, Headliner, Aerle Taree, and Dionne Farris. Though they began in 1988, they garnered notoriety in 1992 with their debut album 3 Years, 5 Months, & 2 Days in the Life of… which included People Everyday and Tennessee.

In the time of gangster rap, hardcore hip-hop, and insignificant party songs, Arrested Development provided an alternative for music lovers and hip-hop heads alike. Instead of rhyming about guns, weed, and gang activity, they created Afrocentrism music that was culturally bound with the ideology and history of African Americans.


However, in 1996, on this very day no less, they announced their split due to some creative differences.
