Fat tracks from Mark "P.M.D." Morales, Damon "K.R.S." Wimbley and Darren Robinson (Beatbox).
Now on to the Pizza Box. I love it. Very well done. This is gonna look awesome on my cd shelf. I haven't bought a new cd in quite a while but there was no way i could pass this up. The cd is stored in a cardboard sleeve but a nice added touch is a paper sleeve inside the cardboard just like records used to have.
It's hard to rate the tracks because the whole cd is great from beginning to end. Jail House Rap was always my favorite, and Human Beat Box and Stick 'Em were not far behind. But now i may have a new favorite, Can You Feel It? has grown on me over the years and i caught my self playing it over and over a few times already today. the rest of the songs are great too. The bonus songs are an added plus. I always felt All You Can Eat should of been on one of their albums. The interviews are great. This whole cd set is filled with so much history.
I do have a question, in the song Fat Boys, the parts when the girl sings the chorus sound distorted. Is it suppose to sound like that? I don't have my record anymore to compare.
This is my first review ever here on Amazon. I think i picked the right product to start with.

Artist: The Fat Boys
Title: The Fat Boys
28 years after its debut, the self-titled first LP from Hip-Hop pioneers The Fat Boys sees a stateside CD release for the first time. A buffet of golden-age beats and rhymes is waiting for listeners when they slide this into a CD player.
The hefty Brooklyn-bred trio—emcees Mark “Prince Markie Dee” Morales and Damon “Kool Rock-Ski” Wimbley, along with vocal-percussion prodigy Darren “Buff Love” Robinson-- began their career as The Disco 3 in the Reagan-era 1980s. Still teenagers at the time, the group entered a rap contest, where they won first prize—a record deal with Sutra Records. Reportedly, the guys were kind of disappointed as they had their eyes on the second-prize home stereo.
The contest’s promoter, Charles Stettler, hooked them up with “The Breaks” megastar (and Russell Simmons affiliate) Kurtis Blow. A string of catchy hit singles soon followed—and running a big tab on hotel room-service reportedly cemented the guys’ formal name change.
Overall, there’s a lot more going on here than most might assume. No 60s-pop covers or collabos with the Beach Boys or Chubby Checker to be found here. This is strictly Mark and Kool on the mic, Buff on the beatbox and Blow behind the boards. Blow was at the peak of his powers here as a producer, including Run-DMC collaborators Larry Smith and Davy DMX in the mix of session musicians. Sampling wasn’t the norm yet in Hip-Hop; indeed, live instruments are the rule here, not the exception.
The remastered set leads off with “Jail House Rap”, a nod to staying on the right side of the law.Read more ›
this is truly an underrated lp... fresh musical tracks (thanks to kurtis blow) and original raps throughout... definitely an essential album for any music collector

I bought this LP, but not expecting it is put in a pizza box.
Instead they put it in LP sleeve, not put in a Pizza box.
