Force Mds: THE FORCE MDS Beginning their musical journey singing in local talent shows and on the Staten Island Ferry, the Force MDs was the first music group to combine R&B with Rap to invent Doo Wop Hip Hop. Before becoming famous they were known locally in their home town of Staten Island as the LDs, the group was formed by brothers, Stevie D. Lundy, T.C.D Lundy, Khalil Lundy and their uncle Jessie Daniels. The forming of this group would forever change the rap game. As the groups sound and following grew, Stevie D and the LD’s teamed up with Mercury Nelson and Dr. Rock forming a new hip-hop group called the “Force MC’s”. Trisco Pearson, a childhood friend, was later asked to join to balance out the group. In the summer of 1983, Mr. Magic a well known radio disc-jockey heard the group and brought them to the attention of Tom Silverman owner of Tommy Boy Records. In 1984 the group signed to Tommy Boy Records and changed their name to the Force MDs (MD, stands for "Musical Diversity"). Khalil the youngest of the Lundy brothers left the group before they signed. Their unique sound brought four top 10 hits including "Tears", "Touch and Go", and their first number 1 hit "Love is a House", and “Tender Love” produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for the Krush Groove soundtrack was a top ten pop and R&B hit. They also produced three top twenty hits including "Here I go again", "Itchin for a Scratch" and "Couldn’t care less". Their silky smooth harmonizing brought the attention of Madonna, who asked the group to open for her 1989 European tour. In 1995 tragedy struck when Mercury Nelson died from a heart attack. Khalil Lundy returned to the group as they record the independent release "Moments in Time" in 1996. In 1998 another tragedy befell the group when lead singer Antoine "T.C.D" Lundy died of Lou Gehrig's disease. With their 2000 release "The Reunion" the remaining members, Stevie D, Khalil, Jessie D., and Trisco are keeping the legacy of the Force MDs alive. The Force MD's are still performing their greatest hits around the country and a documentary entitled “Force MDs Relived” has been released and an independent film is in the works. Passing on the knowledge they have learned to the next generation, the group manages twenty-one year old R&B recording artist, Zieme, who like his musical mentors brings R&B to another level. The Force MDs are currently touring and performing around the country and will release a documentary later this year recounting their careers in the music industry. The Force MDs started out as group made up of family and close friends trying to make some extra money. But what they did was forever changed the way Hip Hop is produced, performed and sampled. These dynamic performers helped birth in the hip hop generation and themselves have gone through personal and professional triumphs and heartbreaks. They will forever be pioneers in the music industry and will continue to dazzle audiences from every walk of life with their captivating stage performances and dynamic ability to harmonize as one.
