Achewood: Let's Get The Loot (VLS) (Under Pressure Entertainmment, Inc., 1998)

More hip-hop-inspired R&B from Virginia Beach with Achewood, who now goes by his full name Achewood Benjamin. Back then he dabbled in only what I could describe as thug R&B but nowadays has more of a radio-friendly sound. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for the contribution.

T.P. Elliston: Dream (VLS) (Homey Ent., 2002)

Early 2000s obscurity from Brooklyn, NY and what appears to be an early recording by a political R&B/hip hop artist named T.P. Elliston. His vocal range is limited and the overall feel here is more hip hop than R&B but the production on the title track especially is fairly contemporary-sounding for its day. Many thanks once again to Stuaaart for the contribution.

Eric La Sean: Do Whatcha Wanna Do (VLS) (Sure Thang Records, 199x)

More rather obscure male R&B on vinyl and funky mid-to-late 90s funk/soul with powerful blues vocals. Nothing is known about the artist but he originates from Atlanta, GA and is one of only two  two artists the label put out, the other being a hip hop duo Tab $ &  Da Villin. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for the contribution.
