Since 1991, two-time Grammy award winning hip-hop group Arrested Development has championed fresh sounds and thrived as trailblazers, spreading unique hip-hop around the world. As recipients of an NAACP image award (1993) they represent culture with beats & pride. They brought much needed attention to the plight of the homeless through their hit song “Mr. Wendal” and celebrate cultural diversity in the dance smash, “People Everyday”.
When asked recently about the state of hip-hop during the last 15 years, AD front man Speech, commented “there is little to no balance; the flood of rappers turned corporate moguls is a reflection of how the genre is losing it’s creative spirit, but we want to play our part in bringing a balance back! It’s time for more substance.”
In 2012, the group returns with a powerful Mixtape called, Standing At The Crossroads. Their lead-off single, “Living“ won the coveted L.A. Movie Award – 2012! The single and upcoming album is a motivational anthem for hip-hop heads, spiritual people & social activists around the world. Arrested Development appears on TV One’s hit show, Unsung, August 6th, while Standing at the Crossroads drops on the same date, August 6th 2012.
