Mindless Behavior (Princeton): Two years ago almost Walter brought the idea to Vincent Herbert about forming a kids group. After that part of our management team Keisha Gamble & Walter held auditions with about 500 kids. That’s where me and Roc met & we made the group. Then a few months later our choreographer David Scott saw Prodigy on YouTube & we had him audition, then after that Ray Ray auditioned at midnight, and soon after Walter and our songwriter Kenneth Nelson started to develop the sound for our music. And then they took us to Interscope Records and they signed us to Streamline Records and now we’re here!
