Silk – Please don’t go
Silk was discovered by the musician Keith Sweat and Andrea Ryans. The group was originally a quintet made up of Tim Cameron,Jimmy Gates, Gary “Big G” Glenn, Gary “Lil G” Jenkins and Johnathen “John-John” Rasboro. In 2002, Elektra Records dropped Silk and Keith Sweat from the label. That same year, Jenkins left the group to pursue other interests and made his stage debut in 2002 as ‘AJ’ in the Tyler Perry play Madea’s Family Reunion. He resurfaced musically in 2007 with his solo debut, The Other Side. In addition to being discovered by Keith Sweat, Silk and Sweat both appeared in the group, Black Men United on the track, “U Will Know” for the movie, Jason’s Lyric the film’s soundtrack.
In 2003, down to a quartet, Silk released their fifth album Silktime, on their own label Silk Music Group. The album featured the songs “Silktime”, “My Girl”, “Alibi”, “More”, “You (The Baby Song)”, “Check My Story” and a cover version of Blue Magic’s “Sideshow”. That song reunited them with their mentor Keith Sweat. However, without Jenkins as lead vocalist, the album received poor sales despite its appearance in the Billboard 200.
