On Tuesday, January 28, 2003, the legacy of H-Town was cut short, when one of the twins of 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…

H-Town got its break in the early ’90s after being signed to 2 Live Crew band leader Luther Campbell’s Luke record label.  It was one of Luke’s non-rap group’s Luke carried at the time.  H’Town‘s first album, Fever For Da Flavor, had the multi-platinum hit Knockin’ Da Boots.

Here’s the video of the best birthday gift I ever received.  I was at home watching the Soul Train Music Awards and when H-Town won their award for New Artist of the YearShazam shouted me out.  It was an honor then and an honor now.

Thanks H-Town.  R.I.P. Dino.
