Dancer/CEO of Tribe Toronto, we are a group of talented individuals that embrace the late 80's and early 90's era of Hip Hop, Soul, New Jack Swing, Quiet Storm and R&B. Enjoy your stay on the Kenny B. Smooth Tumblr page.
Picked up a Indy New Jack Swing album today by a group called “DEEP Penetration” you be the judge.
bredda! first and foremost, i'ma huge fan of the 80's and 90's too, and the fact that you're still around, especially in Canada, literally bringin' back the REAL flavor, my respects go out to you and your fam. i'm out here in Ottawa, not necessarily doin' the same thing, except for the dress code and somewhat my train of thought; strictly vintage. earnestly. i encourage y'all to keep inspiring with your creativeness...
Hey man, I am 22. Where are you from? I appreciate you writing me brother and I thank you for the compliments, dont worry about the layout. Someone probably would have done the same haha, its not “mine” but yeah man the video was “Shes Playing Hard To Get” in tribute for Tony Thompson. We had a blast doing it, whenever you hit Toronto you should definitely come out and kick it with the Tribe.

New Edition - 1988
Bobby Brown’s replacement came in the form of Johnny Gill, a deep-voiced friend of the group who’d been recording as a solo artist without much luck. Gill made his debut on the 1988 album Heart Break.
The move paid immediate dividends, as they scored several R&B hits from the album, including the number one “Can You Stand the Rain.” Meanwhile, Brown had become a superstar with his second album, the new jack swing landmark Don’t Be Cruel.
Gill returned to his solo career, with considerably more success this time around, and Tresvant also went solo. The remainder of the group teamed as Bell Biv DeVoe and wound up having greater success than anyone save Brown; their debut album, Poison, was another new jack style-setter and Bivins’ interest in developing new talent gave Boyz II Men their big break.
