kid n play were alright back in the day and they kept a clean image like heavy d. Play used to design the jackets for them and salt n pepa back in the day.
you know back then they only made change.... they probably made the equivalent of 50k a year now.From the mouth of an old ass man: “There comes a time when you have to sit your old ass down”
But I don’t blame them for getting the cheddar. HOWEVER, how the fuck do these guys need the cheddar is a more appropriate question.
They are the entertainment version of Walmart greeters.
I had 2Hype. It was cool for that era. They were first I heard that took the Grace Jones "Jamaican guy" sample and rapped to it. Before LL some years later. They had crossover appeal. The dance, the hair, the clothes. It was like cacs were just getting their first real taste of rap and Kid N Play were just safe enough with Kid, and just edgy enough with Play. Sign of the times I guess. Even still you can tell the tale of hip hop without mentioning them and their breakout success. I was just watching "Class act" a few weeks back. They had a nice run.Classics?... I ain't never bought a KNP CD
or tape in my life. I always thought they
were just a couple dudes who caught a
break and was invited to star in a great
movie back in the eighties.
I never knew they actually made music.
Them niggas was just cornballs to me.
Lol...damn. Also...eighties? House Party came out in 1990, and their first album was a couple years before that. Hip-hop fans were excited to see House Party because it starred a couple of well liked rappers, similar to when Cube did Boyz N the Hood and when Fresh Prince got a sticom. "Rappers turned actors" was still a relatively new thing back then.Classics?... I ain't never bought a KNP CD or tape in my life.
