With a string of up-tempo, R&B-inflected hits in the mid to late 80s, the New York bred rap trio Whodini dominated the Billboard charts to become one of rap’s first superstars. With hits like Friends and Five Minutes of Funk, Whodini mastered making danceable music that was reflective and thoughtful. Along with the perks of success, Whodini battled cocaine addictions, squabbles over money, and clashing egos, which ultimately caused the group to break up. Yet the group never completely lost sight of their earlier ambitions, reuniting after realizing they were stronger together than apart. For Unsung (originally released back in 2012), Whodini’s members tell the story of a fun-loving, trailblazing brotherhood that has survived three decades of wild ups and downs.
