Biography

blackb2k.jpg

B2K are a youthful, urban dance-pop sensation that broke into the mainstream with their debut single, "Uh Huh," in early 2002. Though the single's success garnered much attention for their self-titled debut album, group members J-Boog, Raz-B, Lil' Fizz, and Omarion were already mini-stars, having opened for Lil' Bow Wow in the summer of 2001 and appeared in the young rapper's video for the hit "Ghetto Girls" (not to mention numerous teen magazine covers and TV shows). Since then, critics and fans have agreed that the industry hasn't seen such hip-hop-dance talent as B2K since New Edition, Bel Biv Devoe, and Jagged Edge.

The four Los Angeles teens were discovered at an Epic Records showcase, where the flashy heartthrobs showed off their irresistible vocal harmonies and hip, complex dance routines that sucked Epic executives right in. Their debut album enlisted a roster of hot producers, including C. "Tricky" Stewart (Blu Cantrell, Usher), who produced the smooth and magnetic single "Uh Huh," and Atlanta's all-persuasive hitmaker Jermaine Dupri (Kriss Kross, Xscape, Da Brat, TLC, Mariah Carey, Lil' Bow Wow), who tightened up the track "Last Boyfriend" into a stylish hip-hop-meets-soul jam.

Later in 2002, B2K released two more albums: Pandemonium! (which also involved the work of hip-hop's A-list producers, like P. Diddy and R. Kelly) and the holiday collection Santa Hooked Me Up. With their charming looks, rock-hard bods, urban-chic flair, and extraordinary performing and harmonizing skills, B2K are indeed the boys of the new millennium.
