OK. Bill Cosby might not be considered a "rapper" per Se, but between eating Jello Pudding Pops and berating Eddie Murphy, he put out this lovely nugget of early Hip/Hop. Of coarse, at the time he thought he was making a parody of Disco, but just listen to his phat rhymes. Pure Poetry
You can keep your Eminems, your Vanilla Ice's. Your Cypress Hills and your Wayne Brady's. To ME, the greatest white rapper that ever LIVED was Rodney Dangerfield. He had MAD street cred and killer duds (just look at the album cover). And his one and only hip/hop anthem still resonates with me. No Respect, No Respect
So you say you WANT to hear some cutting edge hip/hop, but you also want to hear a bad impression of Ronald Reagan? Well....have I got a 12-inch for YOU!
I don't know who the Doonesbury Break Crew is, but I DO know they thankfully only recorded this 1984 single and then promptly vanished.
And I save the best for last. Two powerhouses in comedy. (OK, ONE powerhouse and....uh....a small shed) came together to create THIS, the most annoying 5 minutes of your life. And, just because I like torture. I'm going to give you all 3 12-inch re-mixes of THIS.
JOE PISCOPO & EDDIE MURPHY
