Under the auspices of Bad Boy Records CEO Sean "Diddy" Combs, R&B singer/songwriter Marvin "Slim" Scandrick III enjoyed success as a member of Grammy Award-winning Atlanta quartet 112, who frequently topped the R&B charts with hip-hop-friendly hits such as "Only You" (1996), "Cupid" (1997), and "Peaches & Cream" (2001).
112 took a hiatus from the recording booth after the completion of their fifth studio album, Pleasure & Pain (2005), though the four crooners were still performing together live. Nevertheless, Slim utilized that time to found his own company, M3 Productions, and acquire a solo deal jointly with Asylum and Atlantic. As Asylum's first R&B signee, Slim recorded his debut Love's Crazy (2008), which featured the Top Five R&B single "So Fly" with guest verses by Yung Joc and Shawty Lo. After the release of a mixtape, Slim signed to the independent Shanachie label and released a second solo album, Refueled (2016). ~ Cyril Cordor, Rovi
