10 Reasons I’m Excited About A Potential Jodeci Biopic

I knew this would happen. As soon as I saw how successful BET’s “The New Edition Story” was on social media, I figured that any and all media companies who’ve had biopics in development would get the greenlight and go full bore. And I am very happy to be here.

According to Mr. Dalvin, a Jodeci biopic is in the works, with a script already written and has gone into production. This news is exciting to many people. I am one of them. Not to go all fan girl but I want to see a Jodeci biopic for many, many reasons. Here are 10 of them.

1. The Jodeci story isn’t exactly a happy one. There have to be all kinds of lessons in this joint.

Look, I’m glad “The New Edition Story” didn’t end like “The Temptations Movie”, which, I mean, SHIT; that was sad. Everybody but Otis Williams and Dennis Edwards was dead. Otis sonned himself with the “ain’t nobody coming to see you, Otis” line, David Ruffin got tossed out of a car, Paul Williams killed himself years prior, Eddie Kendricks died of cancer, Melvin Franklin died in his wheelchair (in the movie at least). Shit was sad. Jodeci’s story isn’t like that (yet), but if you’ll recall, we’ve got chart topping albums and singles AND we’ve got niggas passing out on stage, DeVante’s hair modeling several different angles of  “what the fuck?”, K-Ci and JoJo in rehab on reality television, erratic behaviors, violence, robberies, etc.

Jodeci pretty much lived the entire good, bad, and ugly of the music industry.

2. We know their story but we don’t KNOW their story.

This piggybacks off the first one, but to be a Jodeci fan is to know their backstory already. They jumped in a car from Charlotte, Dalvin hopped in the trunk and didn’t tell nobody, and they went to New York, Puffy shows up, they caught a deal with Uptown, DeVante became one of the most underrated and influential producers, like ever, after 1995’s The Show, The Afterparty, The Hotel album, Jodeci took a hiatus, K-Ci and JoJo released a string of albums to increasingly less and less fanfare (did you know they had FIVE albums?) though their first album was fucking banoodles.

But what about their early lives as gospel singers? K-Ci and DeVante worked together before Jodeci. How’d that all come to be? We know they’re church kids gon’ Stevie J. (which was Stevie J’s story too), but how far did they go from where they came from? Inquiring minds would like to know.

3. Shit, this could explain Dalvin.

Look, nobody thinks Dalvin contributed anything aside from being attractive. Maybe he booked more chicks than the rest. He played drums at the end of that video and said, “that’s what I do.” Awesome. But how do you NOT have your name be part of the group name that’s comprised of the group unless you just aren’t vital. That’s all I’m saying. So maybe the one silver lining is that we might get an answer to the age old question: did Dalvin actually add any value or did he luck into being the brother of DeVante? Or did he really just jump in the trunk after the name was already set in stone.

4. There could some significant Straight Outta Compton style omissions

I’m not sure how else to say this, but if a person whose name rhymes with Scary Hay Fries doesn’t catch and possibly dish out a two-piece in this movie and then go onto release one of the greatest R&B albums ever in My Life, it’s not complete. And I can’t see that person signing off on her life rights to be included. Point is, this could spawn several other biopics in response to the original biopic a la Straight Outta Compton and the subsequent Lifetime original, Surviving Compton via Michel’lé.

5. Jodeci’s run REALLY ended in 1995 but they still matter.

Sure they released an album in 2015, but let’s just not talk about that ever again. Prior to, though, their last contribution as a group was in 1995, and yet, the Jodeci legacy looms large over Black music. There are artists who are influenced by them today.

6. DeVante was a musical genius.

Watching DeVante come up with songs like “Freek ‘n U,” easily one of the greatest songs every created, would be worth the price of admission. I want to see DeVante locked into becoming the producer he was. DeVante is the sound of Jodeci and I want to see that process on camera.

6. Do you realize the artists came up under DeVante?

Timbaland. Missy. Ginuwine. Tweet. Stevie J. YES THAT STEVIE J WAS A SESSION MUSICIAN FOR JODECI. Bruh, Stevie J might end up in a movie. Even in its demise, the Swing Mob sold you, like, a trillion records.

7. Death Row Records

If you’ll remember DeVante, in particular, ended up working pretty heavily with Death Row Records. Apparently this was during the drug and alcohol portion of their lives, but the point is, Suge Knight will make appearances. Suge Knight would have had the best biopic run ever. He’s in damn near every major biopic that comes out nowadays. While this isn’t necessarily a good thing, Suge Knight is pretty much a vital part of your entire childhood if you grew up in the 80s and 90s whether you like it or not.

8. Let’s just give DeVante his own biopic

DeVante left North Carolina first trying to make his way as a producer, tried to get to Prince, created the Jodeci sound, worked with rappers and singers, got robbed, pistol whipped, and Death Row gave him cover and fear, rumored Mike Tyson interventions, a much more sexualized and raunchy album in 1995’s heavily Cali-influenced The Show, The After-Party, The Hotel. It had great singles, but it was also the end of Jodeci after I’m guessing all of the drugs, alcohol, violence, and shenanigans imploded the group. Then he seemed to get lost in the drugs and trappings of fame leading to various ODD and erratic situations, including “the hair” and an altercation at Subway. He’s lived.

9. K-Ci and JoJo had an entire second career and lots of rehab

Do you realize that K-Ci and Jojo had FIVE albums, post Jodeci? I remember two of them. But both of the Haley brothers battled alcoholism, even ending up on reality shows chronicling the addiction. I’m just saying, these boys lived a lot of lives.

10. Because “Cry 4 You” is one of the greatest videos ever made and I need to see them recreate it.

Anything less is uncivilized.

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

  • TheCollinB

    #6 alone would be worth it all P

    With no Dalvin the late 90’s and early 00’s would be non existent music wise.

    • panamajackson

      You mean DeVante, right?

      • Tam

        Isn’t that the name of the new baby on Black-ish?

        • Michelle is my First Lady

          Yup, I believe that is where they got it from.

          • panamajackson

            They named their baby DeVante? I need to peep that episode lol

            • Ille Jay

              The ni66a sang out “Ooh-Yeah” when he found out the gender! *WEAK* Twas comedic sitcom gold!

            • Cheech

              The most recent one, just this week.

        • They spent the entire episode shading the kids they already have. Why is Ruby the only adult that will acknowledge Dianne is evil?

          • Tam

            Charles knows she is evil too.

            • That’s right, he does. Zoey kind of knows.

              • Tam

                I think they all know but do not want to admit it.

      • TheCollinB

        I do.

    Scary Hay Fries …

    https://i.imgflip.com/guxjw.jpg

  • miss t-lee

    “person whose name rhymes with Scary Hay Fries”

    I hate you…lol I let out the ugliest laugh, but I hope she really does let her and K-Ci’s crackhead love story get some shine. I’m sure it would be a pivotal part of both their stories.
    I hope they really put time, and money into the movie Like really nail the casting, find some actual singers, ala The New Edition story. Don’t try to do too much with not enough.
    However, I have a feeling like it’ll be done real Lifetimey, in which I’m gonna be p*ssed.

    #8 and #9
    Yes. These could be two totally different movies alone, I’m sure.

    And yes, the Cry for You video is epic. I can still see the black leather outfits in the desert right now. Which, in hindsight makes about as much sense as wearing shorts in a blizzard, but dah well. The 90s mayne.

    “Baby I’m begging, baby I’m begging…”

    • Michelle is my First Lady

      Yes, I’m all for the crack head love story.

      • miss t-lee

        Indeed.

    • MsCee

      Crack head love story…yall trying to kill me dead today. Lmfao

      • miss t-lee

        To see Miss Mary today, versus how she was when she was with K-Ci?

        Whew, the Lord worked that all the way out.

      • Rastaman

        Back then I use to watch her videos so we can see how glassy her eyes were….I believe like Whitney she was given the benefit of the doubt that she was being led down the crack hole. MJB eyes were still glassy in the 21st century.

        • MsCee

          Is that a sign of drug usage?

      • Sweet Ga Brown

        To overcome that she had to give up any chance of having real dance moves. The sacrifice was worth it tho.

        • MsCee

          Lmfao that was her sacrifice

    • Mary Burrell

      Dang, “Scary Hay Fries= Mary J. Blogs. HA! LOL! ????

    • DG

      Jodeci was known for those interesting fashion choices…that then went on to become trendy in so many ‘hoods. You remember those white hoody track suits with the black combat boots from the “Forever My Lady” video?

      • miss t-lee

        Yup. We all were wearing steel toes, doc martens, etc because of the styles during that time…lol

    • NotyoKneeGrow

      crack don’t never get the respect it deserves in terms of making comeback stories possible….Marion Barry, Whitney, K-Ci, Bobby, Ike Turner, Robert Downey Jr……crack needs a better PR campaign

      • NotyoKneeGrow

        actually in the surveillance video Marion Barry didn’t actually want to hit that pipe (tho he did anyway), so I’m inclined to take him off the list….

      • miss t-lee

        I’m trying so hard not to laugh at my desk right now.

      • I’m. Dead.

  • Ille Jay

    #2 for me…they remained out of my grasping eye as a ute. But the fact I was a teen may have distorted that. How he met and created the Swing Mob? This clothing concept here? (My brother and I may have rushed out to Foot Lokker to try to recreate?)

    • miss t-lee

      You and every other dude in my HS…lol

      • Ille Jay

        The Illest! Lmao

        • miss t-lee

          That was a wild time.

    • TheCollinB

      Y’all was trying to walk around lookin like the black Dexter?

    • MsCee

      The fact that I secretly wish this look would make a comeback…ok, I’ll see myself out.

      • Tam

        Please do. No Ma’am, we do not need to have our eyes seared by scraggly chest hair.

      • miss t-lee

        Nah. That needs to stay back in 93/94.

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        Please don’t do this.
        LOL.

        • Tam

          We need to stage an intervention for Ms Cee.

      • mssporadic

        Definitely will replace the lure of the grey sweatpants.

    • AsiaNYC

      That look inspired… this

    • DG

      I think that was pretty much Diddy telling them “here…wear this.” Cats from NC weren’t dressing like this in ’93-’94.

  • Michelle is my First Lady

    I just had a discussion with my boo bae about this very thing. We wondered who the next biopic would be and I said without a doubt, Jodeci. There’s so much to cover and IDC what anyone says, they are such a deserving group. I hope they turn it into a 3-night series, although that wouldn’t be enough time to cover all the material I’m sure. I’d especially want to see how they portray the K-Ci/Mary J. Blige situation and the Mr. Dalvin/T-Boz situation.

    OAN: Panama, you know Total is gonna be the next group that gets a biopic, right? I can’t wait.

    • miss t-lee

      “I’d especially want to see how they portray the K-Ci/Mary J. Blige situation and the Mr. Dalvin/T-Boz situation.”

      Definitely.

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        I’m sure they will find a way to sugarcoat it.

        • miss t-lee

          Probably.

    • panamajackson

      Total’s needs a documentary not a biopic. In a doc, at least the other folks would spend time talking about how frustrating it was to work with a group of singers who couldnt hold a single note.

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        See, I knew you were gonna do this ish today… lol. I vote for a biopic!

      • miss t-lee

        Stop this right now.

        • panamajackson

          They could call it: Studio Tricks and Leather: The Total Story

          • panamajackson

            Or, Before Auto-Tune: The Total Story

            • miss t-lee

              Can’t stand you PJack…lol

            • mssporadic

              If you keep saying their name, they gon come for you. Just like that other Non-Sanging A$$ Singer you posted about.

          • miss t-lee

            *hollering*

          • This just made me think of Silk X Leather… I need to clock out and go home.

      • MsCee

        #dead

      • catgee12

        “In a doc, at least the other folks would spend time talking about how frustrating it was to work with a group of singers who couldn’t hold a single note”

        You are really trying to lay people out today …

        http://ci.memecdn.com/9182554.jpg

        • Michelle is my First Lady

          Panama knows Total is a great group. He’s been in denial about it for years.

          • panamajackson

            Great group of bad singers.

      • LMAO OMG the shade of it!

      • Rewind4ThatBehind

        Total is proof Puff is a demonic overlord from another dimension that somehow learned how to confuse people with sound.

      • TheCollinB

        What’s crazy is that Total looked the best and performed the best during the Bad Boy reunion tour. Outside of the lox

        • miss t-lee

          Sometimes folks have to grow into their looks.
          And voices.

          And I love me some Total.

          • panamajackson

            I don’t dislike Total. They have hits. I’m about to tolerate Total right now on Apple Music. Because you don’t listen to Total, you tolerate Total.

            • Michelle is my First Lady

              We’ve had this discussion so many times, man. Let Total live.

              • panamajackson

                And we will have it until the end of time.

            • miss t-lee

              I don’t tolerate Total. You know we’ll forever go round and round about this. They had plennay hits. Gonna go jam “When Boy Meets Girl”–which has one of my favorite samples of my favorite songs ever.

        • PriceIsRightHorns

          They look great and I enjoyed their performance. I somehow forgot about Carl Thomas being involved in the tour and I was so hyped when he hit the stage.

      • Valerie

        I thought I was the only one who thought they couldn’t sing lol

  • Jacqueline Wills

    Biopic must explain this monstrosity #neverforget https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8ey2vTLYVY

    • miss t-lee

      We all like to act like this didn’t happen.

      • This is up there with Jagger and Bowie’s “Dancing in the Street” video. We know but just don’t talk about it. It’s like the older aunt or uncle who is really a cousin but was born to a teenage aunt in the early 50’s but the face saving shell game of black family politics was enacted.

        • BrothasKeeper

          Or that video Eddie Murphy made with MJ.

          • miss t-lee

            WAZUPWITU?! oh you’re getting this work today.

              • miss t-lee

                I still can’t believe this video happened, and i remember when it dropped on MTV.
                So bizarre.

            • BrothasKeeper

              *downvotes the video but upvotes the effort exerted to find and post said video*

              • miss t-lee

                First time seeing it, eh?

                • I am frightened Miss T-Lee! Frightened *and* appalled.

                  • miss t-lee

                    LOL

        • miss t-lee

          That’s another bizarre one.

    • Ille Jay

      I can explain it…Madonna, Drugs and a whole lot of MONEY!

  • Sigma_Since 93

    Another tidbit:

    I used to date this girl back in the day whose family was DEEP into church and knew the Hailey family personally. She has a picture of herself with a young / teenaged KC and JoJo. She told me JoJo is actually the more outgoing of the two but you would never know it based upon what we see.

  • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

    New Edition = Nayhoo!

    Jodeci = Hoo-Yeah!

    Nuff said.

    • MsCee

      Those 90’s ad-libs were life.

      • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

        Right?!

        Sisqo of Dru Hill’s: Yeahhhhhhheeeehhhhyeah. I mean, perhaps there was something to these signature ad-libs… Sidenote: Michael Jackson’s ‘shamone’ was actually an ab-lib from The Staple Sisters.

        • BrothasKeeper

          Slim’s voice crack on all the 112 tracks.

          • miss t-lee

            You mean him singing through his nose on all the 112 tracks?

            • DG

              I see no lies told here…

              • miss t-lee

                I could never get past his voice. I like some 112 songs, but I can’t say I LOVE any 112 songs.

                • Ille Jay

                  First album…was…Bananas! Loved so many songs..it caught me at the right time in life!

                  • miss t-lee

                    I don’t share this sentiment…lol

                    • Ille Jay

                      Pleasure & Pain…I had my first real breakup…repeat for days…cause I gotta let the song cry! Got the album for my 16th bday (I think, along with ATLiens) it was an Atlanta-inspired Winter in those Colorado Heights.

                    • miss t-lee

                      Hahaha. I understand.

                  • No lies were told

              And somehow it worked!

              • Tam

                Not for me. That voice is definitely a mood killer.

              • miss t-lee

                I didn’t.

            • DG

              To this day, I still wonder how he sang lead on so many of their songs…were they playing rock/paper/scissors or something? The other dudes in 112 actually have pretty strong vocals…I just never got it.

              • elan

                I guess since his voice is unique.You either think it sounds good or it sounds like trash whereas the others are “standard” sounding.

          Question: Was ” In my bed” the first portrayal of a LGBTQ relationship in an RnB video?

          • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

            I haven’t the slightest iota. For some reason I don’t recall there being one.

            The Dru Hill joint…may have been…

          • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

            Kay, so I watched the video and I have to say thank you for pointing out the fact that an LGBTQ couple was in it. I wonder why I’ve never noticed it? On the other hand, I haven’t seen that video since it was on Midnight Love. ?

              • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

                I wonder if the end of the video was low-key edited out cause I swear I don’t remember that part. On the flip side, why edit it out only to air Uncut a few hours later? ??

                • Tam

                  I am wondering how it made it in the final cut because I do not think that people were that accepting back then

                  • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

                    See, I’m not sure either. On one hand, I grew up knowing plenty of people who were. I was raised amongst the community while not technically being a part of it. It was never a taboo thing to me. But because I am heterosmexual, I can’t really say for sure cause it’s not my experience. If that makes any sense.

                I was in middle school when this video came out. Me and my friend’s mind were BLOWN!!. We were 13/14 years old around this time. We WERE NOT prepared to see the women together in the bed. MIND BLOWN!

          • Michelle is my First Lady

            Yup, I think so. Folks would always clown the end of the video when Sisqo ran out the house and then ran back in like, fool you better join them! So tacky, lol.

            • Tam

              Ultimate male fantasy I guess

          • Blueberry01

            Do you remember that artist Sparkle? She was affliated with R. Kelly. She had one, too. Or, maybe after DH.

            • Tam

              I vaguely remember Sparkle. At one point there seemed to be a new group or RNB singer coming out every other week.

              • Blueberry01

                I know right. I found it…

                  Thank you. I remember this song. SN: Was creeping/cheating R Kelly’s specialty?

                  • Blueberry01

                    Girl, it seemed like it, right? Who knows what he was REALLY doing while he was trapped in that closet….

        • Cheech

          I heard Mavis sing that on a Staples record, and my ears perked up.

          • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

            I know right? There are certain riffs, runs and ad-libs that when heard trigger my emotions. Something about hearing Nayhoo/Hoo-Yeah simply gives me joy. Oh! And Beyonce’s ad-lib on Daddy Lessons. Ion’t know why though… I wanna know why…

        • Looking4Treble

          Yeah, but the “hee hee” was all him.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        Teddy Riley’s Yup-yup needs to be mentioned here as well.

        • Charlito Brown

          And Aaron’s DummDummDiddoooo (or Diddeeee, depending on who you ask).

    • You gotta stretch out ya thoke with the Hoooooo-Yeah!

      • NotyoKneeGrow

        also gotta move your head fast enough that that bottom lip quiver ever so slightly……(see any boys II men video for instructions)

    • Photoshop’s a helluva drug

      I wonder if the writers of Blackish gave this a push to happen as well. “Devante is the name of the least important member of Jodeci. No. The least important member of Jodeci was Mr Dalvin and you know that.” Best episode eva!

      • Sweet Potato Kai ?

        I LOL’d several times during this episode

  • siante?

    The Jodeci story won’t be anywhere near as sad as the “Temps” but it is always pretty sad to me when singers lose their voice:

    • Michelle is my First Lady

      I don’t think K-CI or Jojo had a voice to begin with.
      Somehow, it just worked for them all those years.

      • miss t-lee

        They came up in the church. They had perfect voices…for church.

        • Michelle is my First Lady

          Everybody in the church can’t sing.
          See: K-Ci and Jojo. Lol.

          • miss t-lee

            You didn’t catch that shade, eh? LOL

            • Michelle is my First Lady

              I just did! My bad, I’m distracted with this client work lol.

              • miss t-lee

                Bwhahah.
                I just sat thru some struggle solos this past week.

      • siante?

        I agree, but they never sounded the way they do in that video. That’s a new level of struggle for them.

  • Michelle is my First Lady
    • TheCollinB

      Compton

      You can still catch a couple of pressed struggle pony tails being rocked by older dust heads

      • Sweet Ga Brown

        But he not from there so why o why would he do this to himself?

    • miss t-lee

      When I saw that ponytail hanging on for dear life I knew the DeVante I swooned over in my youth was long gone.

      • Michelle is my First Lady
        • miss t-lee

          Please no more…lol

          • Michelle is my First Lady

            LOL!

        • Blueberry01

          D*mn…with the MJ curl and everything…

      • mssporadic

        Broke my heart. Jodeci was my first concert. I waited at their tour bus for DeVante and professed my love. It was that serious. That struggle pony let me know we weren’t in New Jack Swing anymore.

        • miss t-lee

          Man. This is so real

      • NotyoKneeGrow

        if they spent 2 or 3 minutes of the biopic with someone pulling his hair into that ponytail….i’m not gonna be mad

        • Sweet Potato Kai ?

          ???

      • Blueberry01

        Girl, that’s a struggle bun. We’ve all been there.

        • miss t-lee

          Bwahah

    • Petty Levert

      I just let out the UGLIEST laugh!!

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        Makes me want to attach a drawstring ponytail to that little struggle bundle.

    • BrothasKeeper

      He looks like after someone’s drawstring ponytail gets snatched in a fight.

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        No lie, that happened to a friend of mine back in hs. Dude walked by her desk and snatched her drawstring ponytail right off. All she had left was a little struggle bun. I felt so bad … while laughing under my breath.

        • BrothasKeeper

          ??????@struggle bun!

        • Tam

          How much “Let’s Jam” did she use to create the original bun in the first place?

          • miss t-lee

            Not the Jam.

            I’m hollering,.

          • Sigma_Since 93

            Let’s Jam…you so wrong.

          • Michelle is my First Lady
            • miss t-lee

              All I see is flakes thinking about this gel.

              • Michelle is my First Lady

                Break your edges clear off, but it got the job done!

                • miss t-lee

                  Clean off.

                • Tam

                  Why do people allow their hairlines to disappear from them?

              • Sigma_Since 93

                Had girls looking like the suffered from second degree burns on their edges.

            • Tam

              Lol. I know of persons who glopped on Vaseline . Then used a wet scrub brush to get that hair slicked into place.

            • Rewind4ThatBehind

              I like how anyone who used this joint is an avid smoker, knowing full and well one wrong move with that cigarette is blowing up half the state.

              • Tam

                Don’t tell me that you used this Rewind?

                • Rewind4ThatBehind

                  Nope. Never had that kind of hair.

                  Also all the radiation to my head makes it impossible to grow my hair past a certain point.

                  I just happened to know people who used this product, rocked durags, and could probably use that same durag to slide from one part of NYC to another in record time.

                  • Tam

                    Hehehe. Slide across NYC..

                    • Rewind4ThatBehind

                      Just picture it. So crazy.

              • BrothasKeeper

                FOOM!

            • Question

              Not the struggle buns. More gel than hair.

              • Michelle is my First Lady

                That’s why you gotta mix it with water. Slick those edges straight back

            • NotyoKneeGrow

              part of me want to see the list of ingredients….

    • Sweet Ga Brown

      And here I thought the sides were shaved.
      Look at the bright side. At least its not as bad as Coolio.

      • Michelle is my First Lady

        Coolio went straight off of his rocker for that one.

      When I was 4 I cut off an entire ponytail (my hair was split down the middle in two ponytails and I didn’t like the style). I cut half the other and after my mother recovered she had to get creative with my hairstyles. Pretty sure I was the only 4 year old with a comb over ponytail. This reminds me a bit of the look. Eventually she had it cut even.
