Mint Condition’s current standing as R&B’s last great band looks to go unchallenged for some time (unless you count Robert Glasper in the mix) as the band celebrates over two decades in the music business. But as we see in the latest “Unsung” episode there have been some tough times along the way. The seven-member band who hail from the Twin Cities is comprised of Ricky Kinchen, Stokley Williams, Larry Waddell, Jef Allen, Homer O’Dell and for most of it’s heyday, Keri Lewis, until his marriage to Toni Braxton. Though they may be on their way the kind of decades of popularity independent of chart status that Maze now enjoys, Mint Condition has had its share of ups and downs on the way to creating timeless music. We caught up with Kinchen, the band’s bass player who gave us a look at a few things we won’t see on “Unsung.”
