Hmmm. Wikipedia says original lineup was:

Stevie D.

Antoine "T.C.D." Lundy

Rodney "Khalil" Lundy (all above were brothers)

Jessie Lee Daniels (their uncle)

"Trisco" Pearson (joined later)

Charles "Mercury" Nelson (joined later)

Shawn Waters (joined after Pearson and Nelson left; Khalil rejoined after leaving early in their career).

Apparently, their fourth album, Step To Me, included production (partly) by The Time's Monte Moir. Person and Nelson left after that. Lundy had left early on, but rejoined at that point, along with Waters.

Three of the group's members died within five years of each other.



Nelson in 1995 - heart attack

TCD in 1998 - Lou Gehrig's Disease

DJ Dr. Rock (who worked with them early on) in 1996 - natural causes

Trisco in 2016 - Stage 4 cancer

Daniels in 2022


Current members still together:
Zieme Capers

Stevie D.

Khalil

So 2 of the originals are still together.

Other alive but former members are:

Shawn Waters

Damen Heyward

Jessie Rannie
