G-Wiz

G-Wiz was a hip-hop group from the 90s that consisted of members Jamahl "Jamiz" Harris, Craig "Rascal" Cummins, Ron "Farve" Martin and Kevin "Tricky" Williams.
In 1993, G-Wiz released their only album "Naughty Bits" on Scotti Bros. Records. It's unknown how or if the album ever charted.
Their first single and hit song to date "Teddy Bear" managed to peak at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100 #29 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart and #71 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart.

The follow-up singles "Come & Play With Me" and "Y-U-Doggin' Me?" didn't appear to make much impact on the charts. After that, it seemed as if G-Wiz has faded into obscurity.
