SINGER

The female R&B quartet Xscape debuted singing at producer Jermaine Dupri’s birthday party in 1991, and were the recipients of a platinum album just two years later. xscape
The quartet was formed around sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, who had grown up in the church — their father, Rev. Randolf Scott, performed in the R&B group the Scott Three during the early ’70s. Rev. Scott began training the girls at an early age, and they eventually made the jump from the church to working talent shows around the area. While attending Tri-City High School in the Atlanta suburb of College Park, the sisters met Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, forming Xscape in 1990. After the group appeared at Dupri’s birthday party, he signed them to his So So Def record label and recorded their debut album, Hummin’ Comin’ at ‘Cha. The LP broke into the Top 20 thanks to the number two hit “Just Kickin’ It,” and later hit platinum. The second Xscape effort also made platinum, though the group smoothed out their sound for their third album, Traces of My Lipstick.
