The rap duo Detroit’s Most Wanted arrived on the hardcore hip-hop scene in 1991 with a strong-selling debut album propelled by singles such as ‘City Of Boom’. The album was nominated for album of the year in the Soul Train awards. The follow-up brought further singles chart success with ‘The Money Is Made’ and ‘Pop The Trunk’. The third album in the series was previewed by a tribute single, ‘Keep Holding On’, which was dedicated to Motsi’s nephew, Ja-Vanti Abrams, whose life ended after four months. The group is built around rapper Motsi Ski (b. Reginald Adams, c.1970, Detroit, Michigan, USA), who is actually the grandson of soul legend Jackie Wilson, who brought out the young Motsi to perform with him on occasion.
