Boyz II Men, Divulge Three Things Every Guy Should Know

Boyz II Men initiated in 1988, and were originally comprised of Marc Nelson, Nathan Morris, Michael McCary, Shawn Stockman, and Wanya Morris. Nelson soon left the group to pursue a solo career, and between 1992 and 1997, the leftover group kicked out five number one hits, and sold over 60 million albums. Not too shabby for a couple of “boyz” from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Michael McCary has since left the group, but the leftover trio is still recording, touring, and have grown from boys to men, onto husbands and fathers. We asked the trio what advice they considered to be the most important for any guy to know:

  1. “Always be yourself with women. The ladies can see right through the men that try to impress them. If she’s someone you’re trying to get to know, she will eventually find out who you are anyway. So why front? You’re better off being real from the start.”
  2. “Don’t let what other people think influence your decisions. You’re never going to make everyone happy all the time. If we knew this a long time ago, we would have saved ourselves a lot of time and energy.”
  3. “As a man you’ve got to stay strong and never back down. There’s always going to be other men out there that will try to test your strength and push your buttons. Once you recognize this, it puts things into perspective, and it’s going to be really hard for anyone to get the best of you.”
