Immature

Bio

Immature (also known as IMX), is an American R&B/POP group, discovered by record executive Chris Stokes. Its members include Marques “Batman” Houston (born August 4, 1981), Jerome “Romeo” Jones (born October 25, 1981), and Kelton “LDB” Kessee (born January 2, 1981), all natives of Los Angeles, California, where the group was formed. The group released four albums under the Immature moniker including On Our Worst Behavior in 1992 which included former member Don “Half Pint” Santos, later replaced by Kessee, Playtyme Is Over in 1994, then We Got It in 1995 and finally in 1997 released the album, The Journey.

In 1999, the group changed their name to IMx marking 10 years of being a group and released two studio albums Introducing IMx and IMx, and then released a Greatest Hits album in 2001. The group also branched out into film (such as House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute) and television (such as A Different World, Sister, Sister, Family Matters and All That) before disbanding in 2002.

Formation

Immature was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1992 by Marques “Batman” Houston, Jerome “Romeo” Jones and Don “Half-Pint” Santos. Santos was eventually replaced by Kelton “LDB” Kessee (the group’s drummer) in 1993 due to his parents pulling him out of the group. Kessee remained a full-time member of the group. Immature eventually felt that their band name was no longer a fitting description to describe them as people or musicians. In 1999, they changed their name to IMx.

After IMx

In 2002, the group disbanded. Houston and Jones (under the name Young Rome) began solo careers, while Kessee continued his work as a record producer. Houston became the first former member to release a solo album, MH, in 2003. Jones followed suit with the release of his debut solo album in 2004, entitled Food for Thought. Houston later released four additional albums: Naked (2005) Veteran (2007) Mr. Houston (2009) and Mattress Music (2010) Famous (2013).

Houston and Jones have also pursued acting careers, with both starring in the dance film, You Got Served (2004). Houston co-starred on Fat Albert (2004) and starred in UPN‘s comedy Cuts. He also starred in the horror film Somebody Help Me, and Somebody Help Me 2. Houston also appeared as Roger on the show Sister, Sister (1994–1998).
