Brandon Casey, renowned as a member of the iconic R&B group Jagged Edge, has emerged from a harrowing car accident that he believes will leave an indelible mark on his life.
On Sunday, September 17, the 47-year-old R&B veteran took to Instagram to share a photograph of a mangled car, presumably his own. The black vehicle was severely wrecked in the front, serving as a chilling reminder of the gravity of the accident and Casey’s incredible stroke of luck.
In his Instagram post, he captioned the photo with profound gratitude: “When u kno god got u thru it you gotta say Thanku u gotta feel gratitude not jus speak it Thanku Father I kno I wouldn’t b here without ur grace and mercy I’ll prolly never be the same but I’m so grateful I’m here Thanku Jesus!!!!”
The comments section was filled with support, including a heartfelt message from label boss Jermaine Dupri, who wrote: “I texted you and you texted me right back, I love you and you gon be good.”
In 2020, Jagged Edge and 112 engaged in a Verzuz battle, despite encountering technical difficulties during the event, it was deemed a success.
Jagged Edge, consisting of twin brothers Brian and Brandon Casey, along with Richard Wingo and Kyle Norman, signed to Dupri’s So So Def Recordings in 1995. Their partnership produced two massive hits, “Let’s Get Married” and “Where The Party At,” both produced by the So So Def founder.
Throughout their career, the group has released ten studio albums, including their 1997 debut, A Jagged Era, and 2000’s J.E. Heartbreak.
On the other hand, 112—comprising Quinnes “Q” Parker, Daron Jones, Marvin “Slim” Scandrick, and Michael “Mike” Keith—initially signed with Bad Boy Records but later joined the Def Soul roster in 2002. They are known for hits like “Only You,” “Anywhere,” and the Grammy Award-nominated single “Peaches & Cream.”
Notably, 112 received a Grammy Award in 1997 in the Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group category for their contributions to Diddy’s Biggie tribute, “I’ll Be Missing You,” featuring Faith Evans.
