Tony Thompson, Roderick “Pooh” Clark, Marcus Sanders, Russell Neal and Toriano Easley were just a group of boys from Waco, Texas when the 90’s R&B group Hi-Five was formed. In 1990 and it wasn’t long after that their self-titled album–produced by the legendary Teddy Riley–went platinum, thrusting them into fame. One of their standout hits, “I Like The Way (Kissing Game)” had major radio play all over the world. Over their next years together, the boys would release two more albums that garnered modest success. They disbanded in 1994 until reuniting in 2006. But Thompson and Hi-Five were riddled with tragedy.
