The two gorgeous and chiseled long-haired men were put on for their gorgeous looks, and for a time made some hit records and performed for their many fans without a problem.

Their popularity was basically erased just as quickly as they gained it. Click on the audio player to hear more on this scandalous moment in hip-hop history, on the Ed Lover Show.
