Riff is an R&B group from New Jersey whose members were Anthony "Chill" Fuller, Dwayne "Stylz" Jones, Michael "Nitty Green" Best, Kenny Kelly, and Steven Capers.
The group formed in high school and were originally named "Playboys." In 1989, the group was featured in the movie, "Lean on Me" and soon after, they changed the group's name to "Riff" and signed to SBK Records.
In 1991, Riff released their self-titled debut album which peaked at #117 on the Billboard 200 and #41 on Billboard's Top R&B\Hip-Hop Albums chart.
In 1992, Riff sang the title song for the movie, "White Men Can't Jump" which peaked at #90 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #41 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 10 weeks.
A year later in 1993, Riff released their second album, "To Whom it May Concern" which didn't chart at all on the Billboard charts.
The first single from the album, "Judy Had a Boyfriend" peaked at #91 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for only 3 weeks.
After that, the group went their separate ways. Michael, Anthony, and Dwayne went on to join the music group, "Men of Vizion." In 2009, the group reunited and are now working on a new album.
