Where Are They Now? The Former Harlem Shaking, Diddy Boppin’ 10 Obscure Faces Of Bad Boy (We Found ‘Em!)
Well, make that most of them at least. Not too long ago we did a slideshow about Bad Boy artists under Diddy who were dope, but whose talents couldn’t fully flourish with him. Listening to some Bad Boy classics earlier, we were moved to try and figure out what the hell happened to some of these artists, more specifically, the ones who fell off the face of the earth. We know where Shyne is (NOT in the U.S., but talking crap about everybody who is), we know what Mase is doing, we know Carl Thomas is back on the road, we know Dawn Richard is making it, and Faith Evans got away from Puff just in time. But hey, where’s Black Rob? Loon? The ladies from Total? We have a clue. Take a peek and be ready to click!
It’s been a long time since we saw kids REALLY Harlem Shaking in this guy’s video for the song “Let’s Get It” in 2001, and since then, things have been pretty tough for Trevell Coleman, better known as G. Dep. After meeting Diddy (Puffy back then) in ’98, getting signed and having success with his album, Child of the Ghetto, it didn’t move B.I.G. or Mase numbers, and Coleman was dropped. He went on to make an independent album with former Bad Boy artist Loon in 2007, suffered with PCP addiction, and soon enough found himself in trouble with the law. In 2010, Coleman made the huge step of turning himself in for a murder he committed in ’93 while trying to pull off a robbery. He was recently sentenced to second-degree murder and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Daaaaamn.
