One of the big surprises of 1993 was this vocal group, who emerged from the stable of 2 Live Crew creator Luther Campbell. H-Town's single "Knockin' Da Boots" established the group as part of the new breed of Urban Contemporary vocal groups hearkening back to vintage soul rather than New Jack swing as their inspiration.

Knockin the boots
On January 28, 2003, 28-year-old Dino Conner and his girlfriend Teshya Rae Weisent had just left a recording studio when their vehicle was struck by a SUV that ran a red light. Both Dino and Weisent were killed. Three people witnessed the tragedy, but all fled the scene. One man, Juan Diaz, was later apprehended. At the time, H-Town was working on what would become their fourth album.
