Arrested Development

Rarely has a group risen so high and fallen so fast as Arrested Development. This captivating musical collective stormed to the top of the charts with an exhilarating brand of countrified rap that mixed the spirit of Sly and the Family Stone with the political charge of Public Enemy, providing a positive alternative to more confrontational gangsta stylings. Their debut album 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of, which chronicled the time it took the group to get a record deal, sold four million copies and sparked three top ten hits-- “Tennessee,” ‘Mr. Wendal” and “People Everyday”. It also won two Grammys, including the coveted Best New Artist award in 1993, the first time hip-hop had ever taken that prize. And then it all abruptly fell apart, as internal feuding over control, direction and money belied the group’s idealistic vibe. By the time Arrested Development began work on their second album, they had split into two camps and were communicating with each other through agents and managers. After just 2 albums of original material, Arrested Development called it quits. Now mostly reunited, the members of this pioneering band reveal the full story of a group who flew high, fell far, and survived to tell the tale.

Bone Thugs N Harmony

Exploding on the rap scene in the early 1990’s, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony revolutionized the sound and look of hip hop. Utilizing a sing-song style reminiscent of 60’s doo wop groups mixed with the back and forth rap style of Run-D.M.C., Bone Thugs rapped about poverty and struggle in a way rarely heard before. But Bone Thugs rise would be scarred by jail time, drugs, kidnappings, breakups and beefs with other rappers and their own record label. For all that, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are still standing and making music together two decades into the game. ‘Unsung’ explores the story of one of the greatest yet dysfunctional rap groups of all time.

Kool Moe Dee

Kool Moe Dee is best remembered for his ever-present hats and shades, but it's his resistance to hip-hop cliches which fortify his legacy. Anti-drugs and alcohol and pro-education, Moe was always willing to represent bold views in his music and in interviews. He demonstrated his lyrical complexity as a teen, when as a member of the groundbreaking Treacherous Three he created a new, fast-paced style of rhyming that was ultimately emulated by rap superstars like Twista and Busta Rhymes. As a solo artist, he ruled the charts and the clubs with hits like 'Wild, Wild West' and 'I Go to Work' –while taking on longtime rival LL Cool J with 'How Ya Like Me Now.' On this remarkably revealing episode of “Unsung”, and with help from friends and admirers including Doug E. Fresh, Melle Mel, and Teddy Riley, Kool Moe Dee tells his story, as only he can.

Full Force

Few musical artists can boast a career as wide-ranging, influential and yet truly ‘unsung’ as Brooklyn's Full Force. For more than three decades the pioneering three brother, three cousin collective have broken ground as writers, producers and performers. They’ve helped launch the careers of pop stars as diverse as Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, the Backstreet Boys and Cheryl Pepsii Riley, while reviving the career of the Godfather himself, James Brown. They gained cult status after portraying hilarious bullies in the classic comedy "House Party", by playing up their buffed out & Jheri curled image, and rocked the dance floor with irresistible jams like ‘Ain’t My Type of Hype’ and ‘Alice, I Want You Just For Me!’ Their credits read like a who’s who of contemporary pop music. But behind the scenes, the band members have battled career ups and downs, along with health issues that have imperiled one member’s survival. On this remarkable episode of Unsung’, one of popular music’s most prolific musical families gets busy one more time.

Whodini

With a string of up-tempo, R&B inflected hits in the mid to late 1980's, the New York bred rap trio of Jalil Hutchins, John Fletcher (aka Ecstasy) and Drew Carter (aka Grandmaster Dee) dominated the Billboard charts to become one of rap’s first superstars. Along with Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, LL Cool J, RUN-DMC & The Fat Boys, they helped define hip hop’s ‘golden age’ with platinum success. And with hits like "Friends," "Big Mouth" & "Five Minutes of Funk," Whodini mastered a difficult magic trick by making danceable music that was reflective and thoughtful. But along with the perks of success, Whodini battled cocaine addictions, squabbles over money and clashing egos, which ultimately caused the group to break up. Yet the group never completely lost sight of their earlier ambitions, reuniting after realizing they were stronger together than apart. For ‘Unsung’, Whodini’s members tell the story of a fun-loving, trailblazing brotherhood who have survived 3 decades of wild ups and downs.

Big Daddy Kane

With dizzying wordplay, upbeat, conscious lyrics and a chocolate Hugh Hefner-like mojo, Big Daddy Kane revolutionized hip hop’s style and sound in the 1980's. Best known for his songwriting skills and sizzling stage shows, Kane could rock the party a la "I Get the Job Done", battle rap with cuts like "Warm It Up Kane" or craft politically inspiring joints like "Another Victory.” But mostly, Kane was all about the ladies, on stage and off. The smooth operating native of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy would exert a direct influence on Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, both of whom took notes on his easy flow and take no prisoners style. (Indeed, Kane put Jay-Z on stage early on, giving the future Roc Nation mogul one of his early breaks) But as the West Coast sound crowded out stars from hip hop’s ‘Golden Era’, Kane seemed to fade from view. Or did he? In this episode, Kane and a slew of stars - including Biz Markie, Roxanne Shante and Kool Moe Dee – chronicle the surprising life and times of a charismatic rap kingpin, who always did it his way.
