Recording artist/music producer Teddy Riley was honored with the 2,670th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In 1987, the Harlem native fused hip hop and R&B music, known as New Jack Swing. That same year Riley, Aaron Hall and Timmy Gatling formed the R&B group Guy.

Riley formed another group in 1991 – Blackstreet. The group would go on to win a Grammy for “No Diggity” in 1996, which reached number No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100.

Most recently, Riley was inducted into the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame and bestowed with the Soul Train Legend Award. And he’s preparing for a Vegas residency (Teddy Riley & Friends), set to open along the Strip before the end of the year reports our source.
