In 1969 Vallejo, California high school students Michael Cooper and Louis McCall formed a band and called themselves Project Soul. By 1971 they were joined by five others, and the group started to unofficially call itself Con Funk Shun - inspired by the title of a song by The Nite-liters. In 1973 the group packed up and moved to Memphis, Tennessee, and before long they were hired by Stax Records to back up vocal group The Soul Children. That same year they were signed to Fretone Records and released their first album titled Organized Con Funk Shun, however it wasn't until their second album in the following year that the band's name was officially changed to Con Fun Shun. In 1976 the band signed to Mercury Records, and over the following 10 years they released eleven albums spawning ten Billboard Top 10 Hits, including Too Tight in 1980. Before the groups final album, Burning Love in 1986, vocalist and songwriter Felton Pilate left the group to produce MC Hammer. Pilate, who became a very successful producer, was the musical force behind the rapper and produced all of his hits including his hugely successful debut album in 1987.
