Remember Arrested Development? Whatever happened to them?

In 1993, Super Nintendo was the video-game pinnacle, Jurassic Park was stomping box-office records and Arrested Development videos were ruling MTV - back when MTV actually played music videos.

Remember Arrested Development? Whatever happened to them?

Well, after breaking up in 1996, the Grammy-winning group is together again. They've been touring the country on the heels of their recent album Since the Last Time, and will headline this weekend's Hookahville festival. Here's all you need to catch up with the alt-hip-hop greats.

- Arrested Development was formed in 1988 by rapper Speech and emcee Headliner (who took his moniker from his day job as a barber) when the two hooked up at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Originally, the duo performed boastful, profanity-filled songs, but after hearing Public Enemy's "Rebel Without a Pause" they changed their focus to more politically oriented themes.

- Speech's foray into politics came early when he co-wrote a regular column called 20th Century African for the Milwaukee Community Journal, an African-American newspaper owned by his parents.

What: Hookahville

When: Friday-Sunday, Aug. 29-31

Where: Legend Valley, Thornville


- The band has included a kaleidoscope of members - vocalists, dancers, turntablists, drummers and everything in between. Speech is the group's frontman and hub.

- Vocalist Dionne Farris sang on the hit single "Tennessee" but was never an official member of the band.

- Baba Oje, a 75-year-old devotee of ancient Egyptian studies, is the oldest man in hip-hop and the band's spiritual adviser.

- Arrested Development's 1992 debut, 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life of ..., referred to the time the group waited to sign their record deal. The album sold four million copies and earned them Grammys for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance for the single "Tennessee."

- Other hits off the debut album were "People Everyday," an homage to Sly and the Family Stone's anthem "Everyday People," and "Mr. Wendal," an empathetic ode to the homeless.

- Arrested Development has long been a steadfast contributor to charities. Half of the royalties from "Mr. Wendal" went to the National Coalition for the Homeless, and the band has donated $20,000 to Darfur-related causes. When they sent $30,000 to Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress, they became the first hip-hop group to donate to the cause.

- In 2005, Arrested Development won top honors on the nostalgia-rehash reality show Hit Me, Baby, One More Time, beating out CeCe Peniston and Tiffany.

- In 2006, Arrested Development sued 20th Century Fox for trademark infringement over its too-short-lived comedy of the same name. The case was eventually settled, and the show was canceled despite rave reviews.
