Offering a rootsier take on the Native Tongues aesthetic, Atlanta's Arrested Development made waves in the early 1990s with its Afrocentric, musically diverse approach to hip-hop. With group leader Speech front and center, the collective's debut album, 3 YEARS, 5 MONTHS & 2 DAYS IN THE LIFE OF..., generated several hits and won two Grammys. The band continued to release albums into the 2000s, but the popularity of gangsta rap, the very antithesis of AD's sound, kept them out of the charts.
UK ''Best Of'' for the alternative rap act & their frontman Speech. Part of the EMI Gold series. 18 tracks including the bonus cuts ''Natural''(unplugged) & ''People Everyday''(unplugged). 2001 release.
