#DeepCuts: So So Def's Best Under-the-Radar Tracks

Whodini f/ R. Kelly "Be My Lady" (1996)

Album: Six
Producer: Jermaine Dupri

The legendary '80s rap group signed to So So Def and dropped an album in '96. Between Whodini comebacks and Atlanta bass compilations, it was obvious Jermaine Dupri was ballin' and investing pretty heavily in a wide range of music.

Unfortunately, Whodini's attempt to restart their careers didn't quite come to creative fruition; not all artists could adequately adjust to the new climate. But one song in particular stood out. Getting an R. Kelly feature in the mid-90s was a can't-miss proposition. Even if "Be My Lady" bears a more-than-passing resemblance to Kells' eternal "Your Body Calling," it's a formula that deserved more than one iteration.
