Is this another example of Mandela Effect? When I was a kid, nobody ever referred to this group as Fat Boys. It was always The Fat Boys. What Gives?
But seriously, today is National Eat What You Want Day and I can’t think of a better FunHouse Radio track to share than this one.
The song was recorded for use in the movie Krush Groove. The entire music video appeared within the movie. The film tells a fictional story based on the early days of Def Jam Records. It is now considered a Hip-Hop culture classic.
Of course the movie was accompanied by a soundtrack compilation album. My best friend had the LP and I was lucky enough to be allowed to make a cassette tape copy on his dad’s stereo. Hooray!
There was some great stuff on there. “Radio” by LL Cool J and “King Of Rock” by Run D.M.C. were the TOP JAMS back in the day. “Tender Love” by (The) Force MDs was soon played at every high school dance in urban America. “She’s On It” by (The) Beastie Boys seemed like a bonus track cut from the smash hit Licensed to Ill album. Plus you got Chaka Khan, Sheila E, Debbie Harry and (The) Gap Band. Kurtis Blow produced much of the music. It’s a lot.
