guy - MICHAEL BENABIB, CLASSIC HIP HOP PHOTOGRAPHY
Guy is an American hip hop, R&B and soul band, most closely associated with the new jack swing style of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Guy was formed in Harlem, New York in 1987 by R&B singer-songwriters Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall, and Timmy Gatling. Riley and Gatling were childhood friends growing up in Harlem, and previously collaborated in the band Kids At Work. Hall was recruited to join what would become Guy. As well as writing songs for their own group, Riley and Hall collaborated on other songwriting and production projects, including Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative" and Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid".
