Soul for Real (also known as Soul 4 Real and Soul IV Real) is an R&B group from Wheatley Heights, New York, currently living in Atlanta, Georgia made up of brothers Andre aka KD (born April 4, 1974), Brian aka Bri (born December 14, 1975), Christopher aka Choc (born April 30, 1973), and Jason "Jase" Dalyrimple (born May 10, 1980). The group is best known for its three albums and various singles released in the 1990s.

Career[edit]

Formed in 1992, Soul for Real signed with Uptown Records and released their debut album Candy Rain on March 28, 1995.[1][2] Produced by Heavy D, Candy Rain's first single was the album's title track. The song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 chart. Their second single, "Every Little Thing I Do", reached #11 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and #17 on the Hot 100 chart.[3]

Soul for Real's second album, For Life, was produced by Sean Combs and released on September 24, 1996. The album peaked at #119 on the Billboard 200, and the album's second single "Love You So" peaked at #64 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in 1997.[3][4]Staying under Heavy D's tutelage, the group moved to independent label Chrome Dome Records for their third album, Heat. After a distribution deal with Tommy Boy Music fell through, Warlock Records took over distribution and released the album on May 18, 1999. The album failed to chart.[5] One single, "Can't Wait" was released on May 1, 1999.[6]

In 2003, the group formed the label Aljoba Music Group (AMG).

In 2007, Soul For Real began to work on their fourth studio album tentatively entitled The Unknown. The first single "One Man" (featuring Jadakiss) was released later that year.[7] Later that year, they released an EP titled Summertime.

In 2009, Brian Dalyrimple was indicted on 145 counts of aggravated identity fraud.[8] The other three brothers, KD (Andre), Jason "Jase" Oliver and Choc (Chris) remained as members of the group and continued on as Soul For Real. Also in that same they started a new label named Imperial Entertainment to start something new due to problems that the group faced during the past years.

In September 2010, lead singer Jason "Jase" Oliver released his first solo album called "Emerged" under his label/production company Jasemakermusic LLC.

In 2012, they announced that they were in the studio working on their fourth studio album, and have revealed the album title to be The Evolution: Journey.[9] The album's lead single is "Can't Leave U Alone."[10] Later that year, Jason "Jase" released another solo album titled "The Preface".

In 2013, Brian got released out of prison from his 4 year sentence. Soul for Real toured with Changing Faces, Case, Ginuwine and others.

In April 2014 Jase released his new single titled "Ws' Up (Roll Up)" from his upcoming album "The Chase". Singer Anthony Lewis has released a new version of Candy Rain (originally by Soul For Real) ft. Billy Bang.
