Ron Isley has been the lead singer of The Isley Brothers for decades as well as an active solo artist. He’s often taken on the persona of “Mr. Biggs” in several music videos over the years, and at one point, Mr. Biggs got into a beef with R. Kelly.
One artist who had a large amount of respect for Isley was embattled R&B singer R. Kelly. Isley appeared on the remix for Kelly’s hit song “Bump ‘N’ Grind” and later on his 1995 track “Down Low.”
While Biggs aimed to reprimand and exert authority over Kelly in “Down Low,” his role in “Contagious” was much different. Instead of being the one fully in charge, he slowly came to terms with his young protégè’s new place as a successful R&B singer.
