Arrested Development is an American alternative hip hop group that formed in Atlanta in 1988. It was founded by Speech and his ex-best friend Headliner as a positive, Afrocentric alternative to the gangsta rap popular in the early 1990s.

Arrested Development's debut album took its title from the amount of time it took the group to secure a record contract "3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of..." which produced the hit single "Tennessee" a strongly spiritual track that hit the Top Ten and sparked the album to sell over four million copies. Its two follow-ups, "People Everyday" and "Mr. Wendal" did likewise. Accolades poured in; Arrested Development won Grammys for Best Rap Album and Best New Artist, and was named Rolling Stone's Band of the Year. The group returned one year later with Zingalamaduni, which some reviews hailed as a major work, though overall response was more ambivalent. In 1996 Arrested Development officially broke up, until 2006 when the band reunited and released a new album "Since the Last Time"

Since their reunion in 2006 Arrested Development have released 5 Albums and have toured tirelessly. This year, Arrested Development are celebrating their 25th Year Anniversary of there first album. To celebrate this milestone they will be going on a full European concert tour for the first time in over a decade, exhibiting their excellent show with live band.
