You have your spats, all the family come together and address your problems, you have got five, ten minutes, and at the end of the day we hug each other, I love you, I love you, and lets keep on rolling. we are striving for one thing, and that is a Number One, and we are not stopping until we get one."

Music clip - "Peaches & Cream" GOOD MEN FROM BAD BOY An Atlanta-based hip-hop foursome featuring singers Slim, Daron, Q and Mike, 112's style is deeply rooted in soul and gospel. The members met in high school and began playing together in talent shows and at church. Their sound and style was strong enough to gain the attention of Courtney Sills and Kevin Wales, who took the quartet under their managerial wings. After bringing 112 to Puffy Combs' Bad Boy label (they have been dubbed the Gentlemen of Bad Boy), they were quickly signed and began work on their debut. With Combs at the production helm, the teenagers first single, "Only You" was released in 1996 and soared to the No. 3 spot on the R&B charts. The full-length, self-titled debut was released later that year and reached gold status. Now their album, "112: Part III" reveals their evolution form boys to men, in what has been billed as their most ambitious and sensual album to date. The process has been success accroding to the charts, with the album hitting first and second place in the R&B and Billobard top 200 charts, respectively. APTN caught up with them during the making of the video for their new single from the album, "Peaches and Cream", currently at number in the US singles chart. Ambitious for fame and fortune, the foursome believe they are only at the beginning of a journey that will take them to the top. Confident and focused they believe they are destined to conquer all before them. Nothing is being allowed to stand in the way of that vision and inter-band disagreements are immediately aired and resolved (with a group hug) before they are allowed to fester. According to slim nothing, not even their own egos, are allowed stop 112's advance to entertainment superstardom. "Peaches & Cream" is due for immienent relaease in the UK and Europe.
