Sports & Hip-Hop with DJ Mad Max
Mr. Dalvin of Jodeci

March 11, 2019

I want to thank Mr. Dalvin for calling into my show last night on WSJU Radio at St. John's University. We discussed what influenced him to make music, as well as his brother Devante's gift for songwriting. They were born in Virginia, moved to North Carolina, and eventually moved to New York to sign with Uptown records. When they teamed up with K-CI and JoJo, they formed Jodeci, one of the greatest RnB groups of all time. They went on to win four Billboard Awards and two Soul Train Awards. We discussed the making of their albums. Their hit song Forever My Lady was originally going to be called the Jodeci interlude. He also discussed what it was like working with some of the industry's legends such as Puff Daddy, Redman, Suge Knight, 2Pac, and the Wu-Tang Clan. We talked about his classic solo album Met.A.Mor.Phic that released in 2000. He mentioned his favorite artists today and that he would love to collaborate with Drake. He confirmed that a Jodeci biopic is in the works. He said that we can expect a new Jodeci album this year, which I and many people will definitely be looking forward to! We discussed sports as well and he is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan! Thanks again Mr. Dalvin for calling into my show, this was a great interview!

Shoutout to my brother Zaire Adams for creating the dope flier for the show! Find his contact information at the bottom of the Sports & Hip-Hop 2019 page.
