Silk Tymes Leather

Silk Tymes Leather was a hip-hop/rap trio from Atlanta, Georgia that consisted of Vicki "Silk" Jordan, Dyonna "Diamond X" Lewis and Jocelyn "Leather" Rabon. They were produced by Jermaine Dupri.
In 1989, the trio released their debut single "Do Your Dance (Work It Out)." It's unknown how or if the single ever made the charts.
In 1990, Silk Tymes Leather released their only album "It Ain't Where Ya From, It's Where Ya At" which peaked at #73 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The trio's second single "New Jack Thang" peaked at #90 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for only 2 weeks.
The third single "The Woman in Me" peaked at #16 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart. After that, it seems as if the trio has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since the 90s.

Diamond X is also know as DJ Dolemix. She, under that name, was DJing and being a hype girl for TLC in 1992.
