About Ed Lover
James Roberts or better known by his stage name, Ed Lover, is an American rapper, radio personality, actor and former MTV VJ. Born in 12th February 1963 in Queens, New York, Ed Lover began his music career as part of a hip hop group known as No Face. The group only released one album in their five years of recording. Despite of Ed Lover being a significant member of the group, his name was not credited in the album.
Ed Lover left the group for reasons best known to him. He was the co-host of MTV’s hip hop program “Yo! MTV Raps Today”. It was on this show that Ed came up with his own dance routine known as the Ed Lover Dance. This dance was very popular in the 90s.
He teamed up with his co-host Dre to release an album ” Back Up Off Me” in 1994. The album was poorly recieved. The previous year he had starred in the movie “Who’s the Man”, which was well recieved. Ed went on to become a radio personality on Radio Power.
