Is Mindless Behavior the "Jackson 5" of the 21st Century?

Members of Mindless Behavior

Mindless Behavior is made up of four highly driven, fearless, and gifted young men. Each armed with an arsenal of talent in singing, dancing, rapping, and performing. There is no question that these young men are extremely talented, with their "energetic fusion of pop, hip hop, and R&B. This group has already started to create quite a buzz in the music industry, and they are barely into their teens.

Prodigy from Mindless Behavior

Prodigy is the oldest member of Mindless Behavior. His real name is Craig Crippen Jr and he was born on December 26, 1996. He is the only East coast member of the group, hailing all the way from Baltimore, Maryland. He got his nickname from the other members of Mindless Behavior, because of his ability to pick up on new dances moves, music, and singing styles quickly and effortlessly.

Ray Ray from Mindless Behavior

Raquan Tanyae Smith A.K.A. Ray Ray is the second oldest member of the group. He, along with two other band mates, hails from Los Angeles, California. He was born on January 6, 1997. Ray Ray honed his "Mindless" dance skills under the tutelage of of infamous battle dancer Tommy the Clown. In addition to be an insanely talented dancer, he is also an incredible artist.

Princeton from Mindless Behavior

Princeton, who was born Jacob Perez, is also from the Los Angeles area. He comes from both African American and Latino heritage. He was born April 21, 1997. He got his start early on, at the age of four, appearing in multiple commercials for companies like Skechers, McDonald's, and Nike. He got the nickname "Princeton, because of his love for musical history. He is a virtual encyclopedia of musical facts. While his first love is acting and he hopes to break into television and movies some day, he is completel focused on his music and the group.

Roc Royal from Mindless Behavior

The youngest member of Mindless Behavior is Chrisanto August, A.K.A. Roc Royal. He was bron on July 23, 1997. Although, the "baby" of the group, he packs a powerful lyrical punch, providing sic and mindless rhymes. He began rapping at the tender age of 8, and has been honing his skills ever since. His nickname came from he intense dedication and always giving 100% on stage (hence the Roc), but also from his softer sensitive side and his desire to look good (Royal).

Is Mindless Behavior going to stay together?

It seems like every decade or so, the music world is turned upside down by a group of ultra-talented pop phenoms. The 70's had the Jackson Five. The 80's had New Edition. The 90's had Jodeci. Will the year of the 2000s be the year of the Mindless Behavior? Having been compared to the Jackson Five and New Edition, the quartet of talented young man that comprise the group of Mindless Behavior have large shoes to fill.

With each of the large successes, there are those groups that have watched their star burn bright and quickly fade, to never be heard from again. Examples, of groups that never could keep their star going: Another Bad Creation (ABC), Color Me Badd, Day 26, and B2K.

There is no question that these young men are extremely talented, with their "energetic fusion of pop, hip hop, and R&B." This group has the potential to take the music industry by storm. We will just have to watch and see if they have what it takes to be a mainstay in the brutal world of pop culture.
