    All this time I thought Timbo was the one that got Missy into the game.

    I guess because I knew Timbo's name first.

DeVante had his own sound, which you could clearly hear, in not only that stuff, but the stuff he did outside of Jodeci. Next you'll be telling me that Timbo really did DeVante's tracks for 2Pac.

    I do think maybe Timbaland and the rest of that camp were making teh up-beat Jodeci songs. Those tracks didnt have much melody to them and sounded totally different from any of the great ballads.
    Your calling me a Stan? you sound in love "oh no he didn't say some **** about my DeVante, OH NO HE DIDN'T"

    I never said what he did or didn't make, I'm just saying what I herd.

    please...

    You're the one who said, I was cryin about it. I'm just stating the facts. Listen to Timbalands body of work, and you don't hear anything similar to what you heard from Jodeci, other than the up-tempo stuff. Timbo probably didnt come in until around that 3rd Jodeci album around '95, when they're sound changed.

    Return to Jodeci They are believed to have teamed back up with DeVante Swing and Mr. Dalvin for a Jodeci reunion album. However, Jodeci's reunion is still very much on the sidelines, having been held back so many times over the last four years.
    They are currently back in the studio with the DeGrate brothers DeVante Swing and *Mr. Dalvin and are recording a new Jodeci album. Their first single from their new album is called My Baby Momma and will be released this summer.
    I guess i found the answer myself....I hope that this is true....

    People complain that Tim doesn't produce his own music and instead just puts his name on it but the same thing happened with him and Devante. Tim produced a lot of tracks Devante got credit for.

    And so the cycle continues....

    Devante is arguably THE only reason Timbaland is on the level he is irght now. When Devante discovered Timbaland and took him in, Timbaland was introduced to the two main people who would be responsible in helping launch Timbaland: Missy Elliot and Jimmy Douglass. Ontop of that there was Playa, Sista, and others.

    Let's face it, with no Missy there would be no Timbaland, at least not in the sense that we know Tim today. You're only as good as your last hit, and together they were unstoppable with countless hits.

    Anyways, Devante produced alot of music outside of Jodeci. Some his best stuff was with H-Town and a very, very young Usher. Devante plays multiple instruments ontop of guitar and keyboard.

    Devante goes in the producer Hall of Fame as far as I'm concerned.

    Don't forget Ginuwine was in that young crew with Missy, Timbo, Static and the others. That's when he & Timbaland met.

    your both crazy timbo and missy joined up with the jodeci camp while they were in the middle of recording their 3rd and final album if timbo did anything it would only be a couple of tracks on their last album at the most. That whole Swing Mob thing lasted like 1 year. Next thing you know your gonna tell me Timbo was playing the guitar and the keyboard solos while Devante was doing blow in the backroom. Timbaland was a straight hip hop producer coming up and after he went through jodeci boot camp he was on his way to becoming the super producer we know today. Without Devante's guidance he could have never went on to produce Genuwine or Aaliyah. Jodeci revolutionized r&b by utilizing hip hop influence and Timbo simply took it to the next level and he deserves alot of credit for that, but dont hate on the original. Devante played all the instruments, wrote the songs and the vocal harmonies, sang, and gave the group it's image. The man was a monster.

    And yeah everybody in Jodeci was hooked on drugs and it ended all their careers. Look on the bright side though at least they didnt stay around long enough to become wack and irrelevant plus they didnt die, so we dont get a thread a day about how Jodeci were prophets who could cure the ills of the world like we do with biggie and pac.
