HTOWN01

Today is so bittersweet. On one hand I’m happy to see my homie Shazam see another year. On the other hand I’m sorry that this twin brother Dino will not be here to celebrate with him.

Shazam, Dino, and their friend G.I. made up the group H-Town, who over the years were responsible for creating some of the hottest Slow Jams ever made! H-Town started doing big things when the group members were just teens, as they teamed up with Luther Campbell, who managed and produced them. You may remember “Luke” from 2 Live Crew, so it didn’t come as a big surprise that H-Town’s first album Fever For Da Flavor included song titles such as Lick U Up, Sex Me and of course, Knockin’ Da Boots. What was shocking, however, was the success of the songs, which led the album to sell over a million copies and ranked H-Town among the top of the heap of R&B crooners. To their credit, for all the attention given to carnal matters, the threesome also concentrated, on motion picture soundtracks spawning MORE PLATINUM SUCCESS………

On Tuesday, January 28, 2003, the legacy of H-Town was cut short, as ONE OF THE TWINS IN THE GROUP Keven A. Conner a.k.a. Dino died in a car accident. He was just 28. The singer and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Teshya Rae Weisent, were leaving a recording studio in Houston when the car accident occurred. The car driven by Weisent was struck by a SUV that had allegedly ran a red light. Reports said Weisent was killed instantly and Dino died en route to the hospital. The trio had just finished an H-Town reunion album. Although Dino is no longer with us, his life and music still lives on…
