The reason your were having a hard time finding out about the Sylvers might have to do with the misspelling.  

They were Jackson 5 wannabes.  One of them might have had a solo career.  Memory fails me.  But what Dre did with the sample was nothing short of art.  I  know the tune Misdemeanor, heard it many times when it was out and I just now recognized it.  Perhaps my ears have failed along with my memory.

Anyway, you can find, on line, oodles of info on the Sylvers, if you really want to go there. I suspect their track is available as well via Amazon or I-tunes

Not Jackson 5 wannabees, if anything the J-5 should have wanted to be like them.

The Name of the artist is Foster Sylvers. This was his biggest hit. He then was in the family group the Sylvers and later went on to be a song writer in the 80's

Hello Arthur and CJ,

I did some researching myself, I found the group is called The Sylvers and the song is called "Misdemeanor" and the lead singer is named Foster Sylver. I hope this helped. It is not that hard to find information on the artist or group. I hope that helps.

It is Misdemeanor...but I think the artist is Foster Sylver, who is actually the "young Michael Jackson" of The Sylvers. I am searching for it now

Correction. It's the SYLVERS.

Foster Sylvers - Misdemeanor You spelled the last name incorrect. The last name of the group is Sylvers

CJ is right but the correct spelling is The Sylvers or you can also look up Foster Sylver. I just know that they were hot back in the day and my mom used to bang they stuff all the time when I was younger.

It is actually a single by the youngest son form the group the Sylvers name Foster Sylvers (sort of a less popular michael jackson...the Sylvers were a very similar family band dynamic to the Jacksons and they are often confused with one and other) if you want a more specific search
