Goodfellaz is a hip-hop-influenced urban R&B trio based in New York comprised of Miami native De Louie Avant, Jr., New Yorker Angel Valasquez (he was with the group Miami-based group TKA ) and Ray Vencier, who hails from Oakland. The group released their eponymous debut on Polygram Records in early 1997.
They had a minor hit in 1996 with “Sugar Honey Iced Tea.” Produced by The Family Stand (of “Ghetto Heaven” fame), the song reached number 25 on Billboard’s R&B chart. A second single, “If You Walk Away,” was released in 1997 but did poorly on the charts.
