The double Grammy-winning group who were at the vanguard of the 90s hip-hop crossover with hits Mr. Wendal and Everyday People are back in the UK in support of their new album Strong.
With roots going all the way back to Africa and branches heading straight into the urban centres of American streets,
Arrested Development is a band with a message. “We get on stage every night as warriors of rhythm and story tellers of
dignity!”says Eshe, the band’s vocalist.
Here to celebrate the release of their new album, Strong, Arrested Development dare us not to be drawn into their world as they brew a potent concoction of funk, soul, jazz, folk and of course, hip hop.
“We wanted to do a very concise record,” Arrested Development’s Speech says.
“A record we felt that was filling avoid in the industry right now. There aren’t many people really talking about the things that are happening or have
happened as far as worldly issues. We wanted to write about those issues. The reason we entitled the album Strongis because we feel it’s one of the strongest records we’ve ever done.”
Arrested Development’s Speech discusses the group’s latest album in Soulculture.co.uk
Founded in the late’80s by leader/rapper Speech, whose mother owns a black newspaper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this
2-time Grammy Award Winning group has been devoted to nudging folks in the direction of freedom and evolution for over
19 years. Many members have remained based in the countryside’s of the south using dirty & gritty sounds while mixing
samples & B-3 organs, with wailing vocals and soulful southern choirs.

2010 Mobo nominee, M3NSA opens the evening with his unique fusion of true school hip-hop and West African homegrownhip-life. Of Ghanaian heritage and having lived in LA and now in London, M3NSA’s musical versatility has garnered him
accolades from the BBC, Sub-Saharan Africa’s equivalent of the Grammys, the KORA Awards; and the Ghana MusicAwards.
With his brand new release, No.1 Mango Street, an album bursting with soulful sounds, deep jazz chords, driving rhythms,and wryly comical lyrics. This is a fantastic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut, Rapublic.
‘Not just a talented MC but a great singer, a superb producer and an inspired performer.’ Ritchy Pitch, Mondomix.
Arrested Development will be supported by M3nsa
