Fat Boys - Hard Core Reggae.
The Fat Boys are an American hip hop trio from Brooklyn, New York City, that emerged in the early 1980s. The group was briefly known originally as the Disco 3, originally composed of Mark "Prince Markie Dee" Morales, Damon "Kool Rock-Ski" Wimbley and Darren "Buff Love" Robinson, who died of a heart attack during a bout with respiratory flu in 1995. The trio is widely known for using beatbox in their songs. The group opened doors for beatboxers like Biz Markie and Doug E. Fresh
But there were no signs of a sophomore slump on the Fat Boys' second album, The Fat Boys Are Back. The Brooklyn trio showed a great deal of promise on its self-titled debut album of 1984, and this LP is also excellent. The latter, in fact, is one of the most impressive examples of hip-hop/reggae fusion to come from rap's second generation.
