J.J. Fad (Just Jammin' Fresh and Def) made history in 1988 when they became the first female rap group to be nominated for a Grammy for their pop-rap hit "Supersonic." The L.A. trio -- MC J.B. (Juana Burns), Baby D (Dania Birks), and Sassy C (Michelle Franklin) -- were a stark contrast to their Ruthless labelmates and producers, N.W.A. Their 1988 debut, Supersonic, went platinum and stayed on the Billboard charts for over four months. A second album, Not Just a Fad, was released in 1991 but didn't fare well on the charts or with rap fans; the group disbanded the following year.
