Group formed in: 1988 (disbanded in 1992) Back in 2008! / Members: M.C.J.B. (Juana Burns) Baby-D (Dania Birks) Sassy C (Michelle Franklin). A reminder of how fleeting hip-hop glory can be, female L.A. rappers M.C.J.B. , Baby-D and Sassy C formed ‘Just Jammin’ Fresh and Def’ (J.J. Fad) in 1988. They were a part of the Ruthless Posse headed by Eazy E and produced by Dr. Dre.
The first hip-hop girl trio to go platinum, and be nominated for a GRAMMY!! The trio featured a youthful, heavily pop-oriented brand of rap that was non-threatening. “Supersonic”, produced by The Arabian Prince & Dr. Dre, was number 1 on the pop charts and a top 10 R&B hit, and the album went platinum, peaking at number 1.
Soon after it dropped off the charts, they were a memory. Now they’re back and ready to rock the mic again, celebrating they’re 20th anniversary of “Supersonic.”
They just received an ASCAP music award for co-writing on Fergies hit song “Fergalicious” and are planning to do a 20th anniversary re-mix of “Supersonic.”
Stay tuned the Fad is Back!!
