1) Correction: DeVante was never the lead singer of Jodeci. He wrote and produced the songs, but the lead was K-Ci, followed by JoJo.

That said, every last one of those mofos is a crackheaded mess and it's a damn shame that my preteen crushes have turned from sugar to shit.

2) After taking the rap for P. Dildo (who didn't offer him as much as 'boo' for his trouble), I don't blame Shyne one bit for turning his back on the very environment that dragged him down in the first place.
