Arrested Development arrived in the early 90s as a fresh alternative to much of the gangsta rap that was on the radio at the time. Led by members Speech and Headliner and with vocalist Dionne Farris in tow, the group made an immediate impression with the album 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of… and the hits ”Tennessee” and “People Everyday.”
The group has disbanded and reunited several times, but from the beginning has established for itself a permanent place in music history. And that history is given the “Unsung” treatment on the upcoming episode of the TV One series. Check it out Monday night and come back on Tuesday when we’ll have the full episode for your viewing pleasure.
