Ohio Players Biography (Wikipedia)

Ohio Players were an American funk, soul music and R&B band, most popular in the 1970s. They are best known for their songs "Fire" and "Love Rollercoaster"; as well as for their erotic album covers that featured nude or nearly nude women. Many of the women were models featured in Playboy Magazine.

Gold certifications, records selling at least five hundred thousand copies, were awarded to the singles "Funky Worm", "Skin Tight", "Fire", and "Love Rollercoaster"; as well as their albums Skin Tight, Fire, and Honey.

On August 17, 2013, Ohio Players were inducted into the inaugural class of the Official R&B Music Hall of Fame that took place at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Ohio Players were also a formative influence on the hip-hop genre of G-Funk during the late 1980's and early 1990's. Their music was sampled more than 30 times by hip-hop artists from 1987-1992, including G-Funk pioneers Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg.
