FatBoys ... LP Sutra, 1984. Used ....
$7.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Kurtis Blow-produced debut album by The FatBoys! We'll say it: respect is due to The FatBoys – novelty status, fat comedy cliches and Disorderlies aside. If you're a child of the early 80s, there's a reasonable chance that The FatBoys were the first rap group you ever heard – that alone makes them no joke if you ask us. Another thing: the best of their cuts are pretty damn nice and hold up as well some of the best rap circa '84 – and this debut album indeed features some of their best cuts. Includes "Stick 'Em", FatBoys", "The Place To Be""Human Beat Box", "Can You Feel It?", "Stick 'Em" & "Jailhouse Rap". LP, Vinyl record album
One of those 80's records, like "We Are The World", that gathers a whole bunch of current stars to do a tribute record.
