While Stevie J is known for many things these days that aren’t the most positive (including slacking on paying child support, acting the fool on reality TV and being a habitual cheater), his work in music is something he can look back on with pride. He’s behind a slew of classic jams, as he was one of the key in-house producers and writers for Bad Boy Entertainment in the ’90s. What jams you say? Why, take a look…

“Friend Of Mine” by Kelly Price

Stevie J was co-writer and co-producer of this popular track about a downtrodden woman recounting the pain of a trifling friend who stole her man by hopping in the sack with him. The award-winning song went all the way to the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and is one of Price’s biggest hits (for songs she was the main performer on).
