Before Jabrill Peppers (Paramus, N.J./Paramus Catholic) was born, his father, Terry, was teaching moves of a different kind to a future star in a different field. Vinnie Brown remembers being 12 years old and walking three blocks up from his house to 18th street in East Orange, N.J., to meet with Terry. He wanted to learn how to breakdance, and Terry Peppers was the best breakdancer in the area. Once Brown was done breakdancing with Peppers for the day he would cross the street to Kier Gist's house to work on his beatboxing. Gist (aka Kay Gee) would handle the DJ duties, and Brown would put down the beat. Later on Anthony Criss (aka Treach) would join Gist and Brown (aka Vin Rock) to create songs and even further down the road the three would go on to create the platinum-selling rap group Naughty by Nature.
