Throwback Thursday: The Fat Boys (1984 – 1985)
For this week’s Throwback Thursday we take it back to the 1980’s to look back on The Fat Boys.
The trio from Brooklyn, New York had success in the mid-1980’s. The group consisted of Kool Rock-Ski, Prince Markie Dee and “The Human Beat-box” Buff Love.
We have selected five prominent tracks from their music library.
The first track of the five is “The Fat Boys“. This was the title track of the album that went by the name of (yes you guessed it) “Fat Boys“, released in 1984.
The second track of our selection is”Stick ‘Em“. This track featured on the same album as our first track. Buff Love provides the beat for this track by performing his trademark “Human Beat-Boxing”.
Track three is “The Fat Boys Are Back“. This was the title track for their 1985 album.
The fourth track is from their 1984 debut album. “Can You Feel It?” was produced by Kurtis Blow, who produced most of their work.
The fifth and final track is “Human Beat-box“. This track sees Buff Love take the spotlight to perform some of his beat-boxing style whilst Prince Markie Dee and Kool Rock-Ski perform some raps.
The Fat Boys’ music is still available on Amazon.
