2 Da Real Music: Jams Volume 1 (2 Da Real Music, 1999)

Another obscure compilation featuring a selection of indie artists based out of Newnan, GA. Featured are five in total, Rhonda "Roni" Wilkins (smooth modern soul with "Sorry Won't Make It Right"), Nado Harris (smooth R&B with "Don't Bite The Hand That Feeds" and 1 other), Quasim "Q" Coleman (smooth jazzy R&B with "Something You Did To Me" and on the New Jack Swing tip with "Love At First Sight"), Imari (smooth contemporary R&B with "You Want Your Cake" and 1 other) and Uriah, the compilation's sole Hip Hop/Rap artist and featuring contributions from Nado Harris ("Watcha C") and Rhonda "Roni" Wilkins ("You Want Your Cake - Remix".) Undoubtedly local artists that never did much else, only one of them (Quasim "Q") has any online presence at all and his latter more jazz-influenced work can be brought on CDBaby. He has been active since the mid 80s at least as one half of a funk duo named Quest.
