Way-Back Hip-Hop: The Fat Boys – “JailHouse Rap”

They were part of an era when Hip-Hop was all about fun, and rocking the party. I still have this record in my collection, this is history. Seeing this as a marker nearly 30 years later, Hip-Hop is doing just fine, thank you very much.

Peep the first EVER Fat Boys song and video “Jailhouse Rap”, after the jump!

Flashback Video – Gina Thompson ‘The Things You Do’


 
Today we’re thinking fondly of Gina Thompson, who Diddy gave a two album run on Bad Boy from ‘96 til ‘99.
 
In this video he’s Diddy before Diddy, Puff Combs when he still hadn’t run a marathon or had other people make clothes in his name. Just little sunglasses, sitting with Biggie in Central Park. Then still-big Missy Elliott says “hit me on my car phone, if you got the hydro”?! 
 
Classic!

Big Al’s FlashBack Video – MC Lyte – Paper Thin’


MC Lyte was the first female rapper rock it so HARD (ok, maybe Roxanne Shonte’). Most female rappers in her day were all sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice, but LYTE had the husky voice and the swagger to stand up to the LL Cool J’s and Run-DMC’s of the world. Peep her debut from 1988 – this is PAPER THIN!

Wanna know what MC Lyte is doing in 2010? See her website HERE, and peep her video below…
