The Grammy Award Winning group All-4-One is internationally known for making beautiful love songs that not only chart radio airwaves, but also garner countless awards.

Their second single, “I Swear“, claimed the billboard “Hot 100” #1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks, while sales skyrocketed to hold the #1 selling single status in 1994 and third most successful single of the rock era. “I Swear” STILL holds a spot on Billboard’s “Hot 100”as one of the most successful singles of all time and has been named by ASCAP as one of the greatest love songs of the 20th Century. “I Swear” is recorded in history with an imprint in the Guinness’s World Book of records (as the biggest selling single of 1994).

The group's second album was highlighted by “I Can Love You Like That”, a mid-tempo which hit the top 5 on the Billboard “Hot 100”. To date they have released a total of seven albums and sold over 20 million units worldwide, won a bevy of awards including a Grammy, an American Music Award, a Blockbuster Award, countless international awards and completed multiple major world tours.

Tone Loc soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song "Wild Thing" (using a sample from Van Halen's "Jamie's Cryin'") a massive hit winning Grammys and countless other awards. The song Wild Thing was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, "Funky Cold Medina." The album "Loc-ed After Dark'' became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts and one of the most popular of all time. On March 26, 2007, TONE LOC was the #28 best selling title on eMusic...22 years after it's release!

Tone continues to tour many festivals, colleges, clubs and corporate events across America. Because of his popularity and “clean” shows, he performs many of the top festivals across the country and recently finished a NIKE Tour which had thousands of foot race runners enjoy the shows while running. Over the years Tone has performed with many artists such as N'Sync, Britney Spears, Destiny's Child, Boyz II Men, Naughty By Nature, Coolio, Young MC, Sugar Hill Gang, Digital Underground, Sir Mix-A-Lot and many others.

He and partner DJ EZ Rock (whom he has known since the 4th grade) would eventually separate from the groups to form Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. Their first single “DJ Interview” came out on Mike and Dave’s label Star Maker’s Records in 1986. World to World Records would produce their second single “Make it hot” in 1987. Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s music began to gain momentum, and they would receive a distribution deal with Profile Records by 1988.

Also in 1988, Profile records released Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock’s debut album It Takes Two. The album produced 3 Top 10 hits; “It Takes Two”, “Joy and Pain” and “Get On The Dance Floor”, which reached #1. It’s title track became a massive single, and it (single) and the album were certified platinum by the RIAA on June 12, 1989 and December 28, 1989, respectively. The single, gained Single of the Year honors from both Spin Magazine and The Village Voice. Additional singles “Get on the Dance Floor” and “Joy and Pain” continued to help push the album to multi-platinum status. In 1989, Rob Base dropped a solo release called "The Incredible Base" which included a networking of hits; Turn it out (Go Base) andGet up and have a good time.

Young MC: Rapper Marvin Young grew up middle-class and earned a degree in economics from USC, where he met Michael Ross and Matt Dike, co-founders of the fledgling Delicious Vinyl rap label. He made his debut as Young MC on the single "I Let 'Em Know." In 1989, Young collaborated with Tone-Loc on "Wild Thing," the first Top Ten pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash "Funky Cold Medina." Young stepped out on his own later in the year with the Top Ten smash "Bust a Move," a good-natured examination of romantic successes and failures spiced by his sense of humor and quick-tongued rapping. The song won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance, and its strong pop appeal helped the attendant album, Stone Cold Rhymin', go platinum. The follow-up, "Principal's Office," was a humorous, everyday high-school tale resembling a Chuck Berry plot, and also climbed into the Top 40.

Following Young's success, he split acrimoniously from Delicious Vinyl, citing restrictions on his work and unwanted tinkering with his album; the label sued him for breach of contract and eventually settled out of court. Young signed with Capitol and released Brainstorm in 1991, expanding into message tracks promoting personal responsibility. The album didn't fare as well, and by 1993, audience tastes had shifted toward harder-edged hip-hop, rendering What's the Flavor? a flop. In late 2000, he returned with Ain't Going Out Like That on the indie label Young Man Moving. It didn't make much of an impression in the rap world, but Young continued to release independent albums, including Engage the Enzyme (2002), Adrenaline Flow (2007), and Relentless (2009), throughout the decade. In 2009, he made an appearance in the Oscar-nominated film Up in the Air. youngmc.com
