Arrested Development is an American progressive hip hop group, founded by Speech and Headliner as a positive, Afrocentric alternative to the gangsta rap popular in the early 1990s.
In June 2005, the group won the first round of NBC's television series contest Hit Me Baby One More Time, performing "Tennessee" and covering Los Lonely Boys' "Heaven".
The group's latest album, the follow-up to their 2004 comeback Among The Trees, is entitled Since The Last Time, and was released internationally (not in the U.S.) on September 18, 2006.
In March 2007 they toured Australia as part of a triple-bill show, along with Simple Minds and INXS.
Since The Last Time will be released in the United States on October 30, 2007, on Vagabond Record & Tapes, Speech's label.
