"Welcome 3 talented young men who have added new and large dimensions to the beat from the street"

Apropos of it being exactly 25 years to the day since Buff Love The Human Beatbox died in 1995 according to ya host's Facebook feed, here's the Fat Boys lip-syncing their way through Jail House Rap on Soul Train in 1984 before Don Cornelius has them perform Human Beat Box live mid-interview. You cannae spell Burr without the Brr:



Never forget it was Dru Down not Mysonne who first remade Jail House Rap. Apparently recorded for the Original Gangstas movie Dx2 made his acting debut in, but shelved because he already had a Fat Boys remake popping that year. Oh well, at least the Original Gangstas soundtrack had a legit slap by Dru's BFFs the Luniz.

without a doubt the greatest movie ever filmed in Gary, Indiana

also the scene with the luniz dancing by the jukebox is one of the most awkward moments in the history of film. not sure how you can be a bad actor by simply dancing, but they pulled it off. so EXTRA.

Alternate universe where Dru Down played Supreme Allah in OZ instead of Lord Jamar.

All jokes aside, Dru Down was pretty awesome in this movie. Better than pretty much everyone else in (sorry Pam). Dru Down deserved better from us. From Hollywood.

I know he thought he was gonna blow between this and the Can You Feel Me album. Not sure what happened.

He's a way better actor than, say, Method Man...

I think he got locked up in the late 90s, which really derailed his career 😕

Yeah, I saw that. He definitely didn't do the 3 years there because he was out and recording verses for Jacka by 2014.
