How many of my Old School Hip Hop fans remember THE FAT BOYS?? They are and will always be Icons of this thing we know and love called Hip Hop. I remember back in the days buying records with these 3 MC's also known as the Disco 3. I'm talking early 80's! Man... those were the days. I was a hardcore B-Boy that you'd see on the corner with my cousins and friends on the East Side of Salt Lake with my box and card board dancefloor blasting The Fat Boys! "Fat Boys, Stick Em, The Human Beat Box, and The Fat Boys Are Back" were some of my favorites! Prince Markie Dee, Kool Rock Ski, and Buffy The Human Beatbox had that sound that made the trio so good. They also stood out because they were Big Dudes! I guess that's why I thought they were cool too.... I mean come on, their weren't too many chubby B-Boys in Salt Lake City back in the day, right? lol
That's why I was so excited to see TVOnes documentary of one of my favorite all time groups! If you missed it last night you need to check it out! I've put the link below! (IF YOU THINK YOU'RE HIP HOP BUT NEVER HEARD OF THE FAT BOYS... Please click the link and educate yourself!)
