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. K7s attitude to labelling is unequivocal: My music is male bonding on a hip-hop level. Its 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.
