    Where: (click below to visit venue on Foursquare)
    2900 Block of Presstman Street, Baltimore, MD

    When: 1987

    What: Kevin Liles started as a rapper in the group Numarx, whose greatest feat was having their 1987 single “Girl You Know It’s True” re-recorded by Milli Vanilli a year later. The headache getting properly compensated for his work lead the Baltimore native from the artistic to the business side of music, and he eventually became President of Def Jam Recordings.

    In celebration of Black Music Month, TheUrbanDaily’s “It’s All Black Music” presents 100 Rewarding Black Music Moments, sponsored by Southwest Airlines.
