Artz & Kraftz


Artz & Kraftz were an R&B from the '90s that consisted of Antonio Moore, Mitchell Lewis and Shamgar Grey.
In 1988, they released their debut single "Burning Love" on Profile Records. It's unknown how or if it  made the charts at all.
In 1990, Artz & Kraftz appeared on the soundtrack to the Kid n' Play film "House Party" with the tracks "Surely" and "What a Feeling" (which was released as a single). According to allmusic.com, their first album "Beginning of an Era" was released, but I can't seem to find any further information about it.
In 1993, Artz & Kraftz released their second album "The Experience" on Columbia Records. It's unknown how or if the album charted.
The only single released from the album "All of It" managed to peak at #21 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot R&B Singles chart.

After that, it seemed as they had faded into obscurity. Not much has been heard from Artz & Kraftz since the '90s.
