One of the biggest-selling female singing groups of all time, TLC rose to R&B and hip hop superstardom during the 1990s. The trio formed in Atlanta, Ga., in 1991, when Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and rapper Lisa “Left Eye" Lopes split off from another group; they were joined shortly thereafter by Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas. The group’s debut album spawned the hit singles “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” and “Baby-Baby-Baby.” The group's second album, CrazySexyCool, released in 1994, became a blockbuster success. That album sold more than 11 million copies in the United States alone and won a GRAMMY® for Best R&B Album. The lead single, “Creep,” became TLC’s first No. 1 pop hit and was followed by three more Top 5 singles, including their biggest hit “Waterfalls.” In 2002, Lopes was tragically killed in a car accident. The surviving members carried on, releasing 3D, the album they were working on at the time of Lopes' death, which became Double Platinum. In addition to continuing to release music and tour, TLC is the focus of a documentary on A&E, set to air in 2021.

Based in Cleveland, Ohio, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was one of the most successful ‘90s rap outfits to break into the mainstream. Formed in the early 1990s by Layzie Bone (Steven Howse), Bizzy Bone (Bryon Anthony McCane), Krayzie Bone (Anthony Henderson), Wish Bone (Charles Scruggs) and Flesh-n-Bone (Stanley Vernell Howse), they were signed and nurtured by the founder of Ruthless Records, the late Eazy-E of N.W.A. Their brand of flowing, rolling, rapid-clip, harmonized rap – dubbed the "Cleveland Sound" – propelled them to the top of the charts. Their EP Creepin on ah Come Up included the breakout single “Thuggish Ruggish Bone,” which reached No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their second album, E. 1999 Eternal, included hits “1st of tha Month” and “East 1999.” The group’s hit single “The Crossroads,” a tribute to Eazy-E after his death, won a GRAMMY® Award in 1997. Some of the group’s other albums include the double-disc set The Art of War, Thug World Order, Thug Stories and Uni5: The World’s Enemy.
