4Ever Songs: Stereo MC’s ‘Connected’

The Stereo MCs are a British alternative hip-hop/electronic dance group founded by vocalist Rob Birch and Nick “The Head” Hallam in the mid-’80s. It took a while for a bunch of white Brits to be taken seriously in the hip-hop community, but they made some inroads with their 1990 album, Supernatural, when the single “Elevate My Mind” became the first British rap song to make the Billboard Hot 100. But the Stereo MCs didn’t truly achieve their mainstream breakthrough until the release of their third album, Connected, which went platinum in their native UK and stayed in the British Top 10 for nearly a year.
