Arrested Development on Sunday 10th October 2021
Hoochie Coochie is delighted & honoured to present ...
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award Winning group Arrested Development delivers an on-stage energy to thirsty audiences looking to quench their soul!
It’s been more than twenty years since a new group called Arrested Development slammed the gangsta dominated world of hip hop with defiant lyrics of hope. They became the first ever hip-hop artist to receive the “best new artist”Grammy ! In addition, the group also received a Grammy award for “best rap single” for their anthemic prayer-like hit song, Tennessee.
With the success of the single Mr Wendal, Arrested Development brought the issue of homelessness to the forefront. The group donated half of the royalty earnings from Mr Wendal to the National Coalition of the Homeless. Awards, chart success and accolades continued to follow. One of the highlights was being asked to write a song for Spike Lee’s movie about minister and human rights activist, Malcom X.
For the last twenty years, Arrested Development has performed sold-out concerts in literally every part of the world. In September, 2019, the band was given an award at the Black Music Honors Awards. This award acknowledges Artists who have made a significant contribution to African American Music.
The band continue to release new music and find new success in different corners of the globe. Their shows are a celebration of life. Experiencing an Arrested Development concert is an uplifting and spiritual event wrapped into one big party. They continue to release new music (Craft & Optics) and Speech has released two documentaries. 'The Nigga Factory'(mini doc) featuring Chuck D, David Banner, Dr. Umar Johnson and more! 'The N Factory' is hailed as a MUST SEE by Boyce Watkins (Your Black World) and the powerful full length doc'16 Bars' where Speech goes into a jail for 10 days to write music with inmates has won numerous film festival awards!
