Plucked from an audition of more than 600 kids by Conjunction Entertainment CEO Walter Millsap, the four teenagers who make up Mindless Behavior—Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray and Princeton—are in it to win. Since its 2008 inception, the quartet has melded teenage concerns like girls and texting with mellow hip-hop, soulful R&B and a generous portion of synthesized pop. And, for a little icing on the proverbial cake, the four young performers can work the floor with dance moves that rival some of the industry's finest.
Mindless Behavior's 2011 debut album, "#1 Girl," landed at the top of Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, and the effort's second single, "Mrs. Right," scored video appearances by LL Cool J, Diggy Simmons and Mike Epps. The Los Angeles-based act has riled up ticket holders on sold-out tours for the Backstreet Boys and Justin Bieber, as well as its own headlining 25-city concert trek in 2012 with opening acts Jacob Latimore, Lil Twist and Kayla Brianna.
