Back in the early days of Hip-Hop, when it was just a drum beat and a rhyme, the Fat Boys hit the scene with funny lyrics and The Human Beat Box (the original). 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!

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…
Before Biggie Smalls, Chubb Rock, or any other super-size rapper in the Golden Age, there was HEAVY D! Smoothed out style and fashion, showing love to the ladies…that was the Heavy D way. Enjoy this classic from 1991.
