Mtume

Mtume (pronounced em-too-may) is an R&B band from New York City that first formed in 1971. The group had some success throughout the early 1980's, with their most notable being their 1983 single "Juicy Fruit", which reached number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 1 on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart (which would later be known as the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart). The single was also famously sampled in the first hit single by The Notorious B.I.G., "Juicy", in 1994. After releasing a few more singles and two more albums, Mtume ended up disbanding in 1987.
