Father MC

Father MC (born Timothy Brown) was a popular African American rapper for the Uptown Records label in the early 1990s. Discovered and signed by then-Uptown executive Sean "Puffy" Combs, he is best known for introducing the public to Uptown's successful R&B act Jodeci in the track, "Treat Them Like They Want To Be Treated" and Mary J. Blige. One of his most famous hits was "Lisa Baby", an upbeat, bouncy R&B hip hop crossover. Father MC straddled the line between hip-hop and new jack swing, which resulted in a number 20 hit, "I'll Do 4 U," from his debut album, "Father's Day", in 1990. The backing track sampled from "Got to Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn. Singing back-up vocals on this track was no other than Mary J. Blige and this track was her first major record appereance and considered by many to be an important stepping stone to her career. Nearly two years after his debut, Father MC followed with "Close to You". Its success was almost guaranteed by Father MC's appearance on the CD, "Uptown MTV Unplugged". Also he did a street lifestyle track "Pimp or Die" on "Who's the Man?" (original movie soundtrack).

Father MC was formerly a dancehall reggae performer, and there was some reggae influence interspersed with the sentimental love lyrics and hip-hop production. After a four-year studio hiatus, he returned in 1999 with "No Secrets", and another lengthy pause preceded 2003's "My".

In the late 1990s, Father MC posed fully nude for Playgirl magazine.

In 2006, Father MC was on the BET Awards.

In 2007 Father Mc re-introduced himself as Fambody. He is currently engaged to Pilar Fort , a former Miss Black America Pagent Winner.
