Jail House Rap by the Fat Boys is the Greatest Hip-Hop song EVER.
It's a musical feast. The blend of funk and hip-hop on that track has never been eclipsed, in my opinion. The way Kurtis Blow combined beatboxing and the piano is amazing. He gives hip-hop a groove that's fierce yet playful and fun. I never get tired of listening to that joint.
I couldn't write a better article about the Fat Boys than the author of the great article linked above. The author, Scott Woods and I, obviously, both share fond memories of the Fat Boys. I remember playing basketball, every day, all summer long with that first Fat Boys album blasting on a boombox. By the end of the summer, the dust was so thick from playing on the dirt court, our black hair was dusty blond by dusk.
I did what I do and made a tribute playlist to go along with Mr. Woods post, so young heads can appreciate the original Disco Three, the way us older heads do.
