Hailing from the city of Las Vegas, 702 shot to stardom in the mid 1990's with a handful of top ten hits and platinum album success. Originally signed as a quartet, the group debuted in 1995 with a hit duet with label mates Subway titled "This Little Game We Play." The following year, their record label decided to re-debut 702 as a trio, teaming original members Misha and Irish Grinstead with new addition Meelah Williams. Under the production of Missy Elliott, 702 went on to earn gold certification in 1996 with the hip-hop infused single "Steelo," followed by platinum success on a female empowerment anthem titled "Where My Girls At" in 1999. However, as 702's music was bonding women around the world, the band was plagued by infighting, ultimately leading to their disbanding in 2003. After years of silence, the members of 702 share their long and winding journey with Unsung.
