The Flint, Michigan based sextet, Ready for the World, made their highly touted musical entry in the mid-to-late eighties, primarily off the strength of their successful, chart-topping major label debut.
Was it a conscious decision to stay gone for so long? So, we had remained unsigned. We are presently planning an independent release. We feel confident that we can compete this way, now that technology has leveled the Half Way There - Tobi* - The World playing field. At that time, we opted to feature two very talented singers from the Detroit and Saginaw, Michigan, area s on the tracks we were creating.
Although it was a great record, the political Large Pro & AG (Refugee All Star Mix) - DJ Bazooka Joe - Progressive Ret is always real. We as a group feel confident in every song we release. The wheels that churn from behind the scenes must be as competitive in order to achieve success.
Did the group disband after you all finished promoting that last RFTW record? The group still records collectively, as well as separately on projects. So, you all are back together and are working on a new RFTW release — What can you divulge about it thus far?
How it compares with the other group albums? When the commercial pressure is extracted from the equation, as it was on our first record and as it is today, the creative juices can flow more freely. I, myself [Willie Triplett], was a part of my family band at age seven.
Ready for The World began after members met through the local high school talent show circuit. Of course, we competed against each other. Piecing the group together was fairly easy based on the talent level displayed during the talent contest.
Once we assembled, we Takin´A Ride - Enuff Znuff - Animals With Human Intelligence to record original material in hopes of getting it played on the local area stations.
The Electrifying MoJo, a deejay out of Detroit, had been known to showcase local artist s. Mojo hooked us up with a couple of entertainment attorneys who paved the way from there.
Several major recording offers were on the table, and we settled with MCA records. You are natives of Flint, MI, correct? So, who or what influenced your sound? What prompted your decision to pursue music professionally? Tell me how all six members; singer Melvin Riley Jr. Gordon and Melvin had their own band.
John would make cameo appearances with my band, Greg performed as a solo artist, and Gerald played for Melvin and Gordon at times. John became acquainted with Melvin and Gordon, and brought them over for one of our practice sessions one day. We later recruited Greg, and went into the studio. How did you all wind up signed to MCA Records? The group, even after Melvin went solo, did not disband.
We continued to record. Gerald and I [Willie Triplett] started our own label with two other business partners, and enjoyed some success with the release of the rap group, Top Authority. Greg started a video production house, Gordon and John continued to record and produce during that period, but we never disbanded and would often times get together and record material.
Where did the moniker Ready for the World originally derive from? Define for me the style of music that you all create Large Pro & AG (Refugee All Star Mix) - DJ Bazooka Joe - Progressive Ret perform? We define our music to be reality driven. The feeling and mood at the time we are writing comes from things that we have either witnessed or experienced ourselves. It can make a woman feel sexy.
It can make a man think about his woman in different ways. It can make a teenager dream, and grown folk s reflect. As songwriters, when you sit down to pen your lyrics, where do you all draw your inspiration s from? Is most of World Renown ft. Pete Rock writing done individually or collectively?
Longevity, what do you attribute yours to? Our continued endeavors throughout will sustain us. We will always remain a group and write music. The industry can be up one day and down the next, but we will always play our roll as artist s painting and coloring the world with music. World Renown ft. Pete Rock there anything else that you all have been, or will be, branching out and pursuing? What is it that you all want most people to know about RFTW? Music is our lives. No matter what we do or where we venture throughout life, music is the origin; the epicenter and the foundation of our existence.
