Kool Rock-Ski on Forming Fat Boys, Doug E Fresh Beef, Buff & Markie Dee Dying (Full Interview)

Kool Rock-Ski came through for his first-ever VladTV interview, where he shared the history of the pioneering rap group, The Fat Boys. He spoke about being in high school when the group started as a five-member group, which was then shortened to three members, including Prince Markie Dee and Buffy the human beatbox. Kool Rock-Ski detailed the group, then known as The Disco Three, winning a huge Coca-Cola sponsored talent contest, getting a record deal, and taking off with their track "Stick 'Em." From there, Kool Rock-Ski spoke about The Fat Boys hitting great heights over their career, including movie deals, gold and platinum records, and five successful albums. While they had high times, Kool Rock-Ski also addressed the low points, including Buffy's unexpected death from the flu in 1995, and Prince Markie Dee passing away at just 52 earlier this year. To hear more, including Kool Rock-Ski's plans for future projects involving the group, hit the above clip.

    I met this guy in person in 1985 or 1986. actually all of them in San Diego after the Get Fresh Crew Concert at some hotel where run dmc jam master j ozone turbo Doug e fresh. all them were there but the human beat box was in the door way turning the light on & off beat boxing to the music. The light skin one in the fat boys was rude. But this guy & the box was SUPER COOL to me. The box gave me a pencil & the hotel pad so I could get autographs from them & erbody else. That turbo was rude too. But rip HUMAN BEAT BOX!! I’m glad to see you BRO!! You still look the same.

    Great interview but I wish more was said about doing the "Disorderlies" movie. Thats one of my favorite cult classic films. How it was working with Ralph Bellamy (MORTIMER!) Troy Beyer and the film grossing a considerable amount. Nothing was asked about it. Sigh.

    Also, please start using the R&B charts for more accurate information about how the albums and singles did in Billboard. For example, the Fat Boys debut album reached number 48 on the pop album chart like you said, but it got up to number 6 on the black R&B chart; which better reflected how the record did with its target audience. Joel Whitburn’s research books have all the Billboard chart info you’ll need; especially the Top R&B Albums 1965-1998 book

      Actually the first gold album in hip-hop was The Breaks by Kurtis Blow in like 80 or 81 if I'm not mistaken. Remember Kurtis was already big at that time and he was helping to put Run-DMC and The Fatboys on.

I remember catching them on their Wipe Out Tour back in the day & that joint was OFF THE CHAIN!!! 🔥🔥🔥 The balcony structure was literally bouncing throughout the set, because folks were just amped & jammin' to the Disco 3/Fat Boys.

      Melle Mel, Fat Boys , Run DMC and LL Cool J is the reason why I resonated to rap music after after my favorite singer "Michael Jackson". That's when I chose listening to rap over r&b (singing in general).
