Timothy “Vellie Guy” Cornelius and Pathella “Blackjack” Cornelius will be the sons of ’70s soul performer and songwriter Eddie Cornelius, Jr. As an associate of the family members group Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose, the elder Cornelius acquired strikes in 1972 with “Deal with Her Such as a Female” and “As well Late to carefully turn Back Today,” so that it wasn’t astonishing when his two sons directed for professions in music. If they had been simply 13, Timothy and Pathella produced their very own R&B group, known as Brother to Brother. Travels with Silk, Shai, Get away, and Keith Perspiration demonstrated them the ropes, but Sibling to Sibling disbanded. In 1999, the brothers produced the gangsta rap group Vellie Boyz. Frederick “Freaky Harmful” Reed and Mitchell “Spit Fireplace” Butler became a member of the South Florida troupe, and Vellie Boyz had been ready. Singles such as for example “D.A.N.We.A.,” “Da Truth,” and “Living on Deathrow” had been minor strikes in 2001.
