Past members

Children of the Corn was a hip hop group from Harlem, New York formed in 1994 by neighbourhood friends Big LMurda Mase, Killa Kam, Herb McGruff and Bloodshed. The group name is a play on words; it is short for Children of the Corner as well as a reference to the Stephen King short story of the same name.

HistoryEdit

Big L was the founder of the group, as he pushed Mase and Kam off the streets and into the studio, as well as Kam's cousin Bloodshed, with the last member of the group being McGruff. They recorded over 30 songs under the name Children of the Corn, as they tried for a record deal. They rhymed for local DJs and sold mixtapes out of the trunks of their cars.

The group disbanded after the death of Bloodshed in 1997. Even before the group disbanded, each of the group members had pursued their solo careers. Big L signed with Columbia, Mase signed with Bad Boy, Kam signed with Epic and McGruff signed with Uptown. A collection of the group's songs, entitled Children of the Corn: Collector's Edition was released in 2003.
