This Latin-flavoured hip-hop unit from Manhattan, New York, USA found chart success in 1993 with the addictive and anthemic ‘Come Baby Come’. The quintet combine energetic R&B arrangements with clean raps, a style that has been unkindly referred to as ‘The Hispanic Take That’. Led by K7, who gives the group their name, they also feature DJ Non-Stop, Prophet, Tre Duece and LOS. K7’s attitude to labelling is unequivocal: ‘My music is male bonding on a hip-hop level. It’s not rap music’. The party-jam spirit of their debut single was present alongside more of the same on their debut album, which included the bilingual ‘Zunga Zeng’ cut, as well as a rather embarrassing attempt at ‘A Little Help From My Friends’.
