Hailing from New Rochelle, New York, the original members, Maxwell Dixon (aka Grand Puba), Derrick Murphy (aka Sadat X), Lorenzo DeChalus (aka Lord Jamar), and Alamo formed Brand Nubian in 1989, after Puba stepped away from his former group, Masters Of Ceremony. Their debut album One For All is one of the more popular and acclaimed alternative hip hop albums of the 1990s, known for socially conscious and politically charged content inspired by the teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths and is most remembered for the sampling of Edie Brickell's “What I Am” in “Slow Down.” This 3-disc, 45-track compilation features instrumental versions of their most iconic songs, including “Word Is Bond,” “Wake Up” and “Slow Down.”
