Iconic singing group 112 (Quinnes “Q” Parker, Daron Jones, Marvin “Slim” Scandrick & Michael Keith) held a small celebration in celebration of their 20th year in the music industry.
The Atlanta-based group, formerly of Bad Boy Records, had great success in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits like “Only You”, “Anywhere” and the Grammy-nominated single, “Peaches and Cream”. The group won a Grammy Award in 1997 for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for featuring in the song “I’ll Be Missing You” with Sean Combs and Faith Evans and 2016 marks their 20th year.
The event was held at Aroma Lounge Tuesday evening (March 15, 2016) and several of their industry peers came out in support.
Attendees included Keri Hilson, Jagged Edge, Young Joc (LHHATL) and many more.

After a five year hiatus and speculation that they had broken up, at least three of the four members of the R&B group 112 have reunited to record a follow up to their 2005 release Pleasure & Pain, which went gold in the U.S.
Group member Quiness “Q” Parker broke the news earlier this week via his Twitter page:
Its good to see that they’ve worked out their differences. If you recall, Michael Keith formerly accused two of his fellow bandmates, Q Parker and Daron Jones, of taking unfair shares of royalty checks. Keith revealed in a 2008 interview:
I’m not sure what the status is of the other three members, but myself, I am no longer in 112. I had to leave because I found out that a certain member of the group took my publishing check.
It was made clear that it was intended for myself and another member, Slim [Marvin Scandrick].
At that time, Mike was also asked about a 112 reunion where he stated, “I’m going to be honest with you and say I’ve grown and lived long enough to never say never, so if that was to happen in the future I will welcome it under the right circumstances.”
I guess the time is now…
