D'Wayne and Raphael Wiggins, along with cousin Timothy Christian, made a quick and lasting impact with their 1988 Tony! Toni! Tone! debut album Who? The lead single "Little Walter" used the melody from "Wade in the Water" and laid out in vivid detail the rise and fall of a comrade who lacked control and direction. It proved a huge R&B hit and got moderate pop attention, and it helped establish the trio and their creative mix of vintage soul and contemporary hip-hop and new jack production. "Baby Doll" and "For the Love of You" also got sizable pop attention, and Tony! Toni! Toné! were on their way.
