Arrested Development are true trailblazers within hip-hop music. Since 1991, they've championed colorful sounds while spreading a unique mixture of consciousness and musicality around the globe. VH-1 awarded AD as one of the greatest hip-hop artists of all time. Their song "Tennessee" was voted one of the 500 Songs that shaped rock and roll by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! AD was the first ever in rap music to have an elder (Baba Oje) who brought wisdom to the youthful energy of the group and the second ever in hip-hop to tour with a live band, to have female and male members, plus boast a message of hope, change and celebrating life.
