The Jodeci meets New Edition meets Southern crunk group 4Mula1 hail from California and started like so many other successful R&B vocal groups, in the church choir. Stevie Wonder, Commissioned, Creed, and Beenie Man were just some of the diverse influences members Chaos, E-Maze, AJ, and G1000 were listening to when they formed 4Mula1 (4 Men United in L.A.) in high school. The church choir gave them a chance to practice and refine their vocal skills, and casual after-church get-togethers soon evolved into eye-on-the-prize rehearsals. It took only one showcase to convince SoBe Entertainment that 4Mula1 had the right sound and the right moves to make it big. The Miami-based record label signed them and in October of 2004 released their debut, Let's Get It, with the Mario Winans-written and -produced single "Gotta Roll" leading the way. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
