Popular 80s trio, The Fat Boys, are not only getting ready for a comeback to music, but they’re doing all sorts of things that are catching attention these days.
One, in particular, was when Prince Markie Dee called out wrestling legend Iron Sheik to a MMA fight, after Sheik made some sort of “racist” comment. However, nothing has come of it just yet.
Now, the trio are gearing up for the release of a new clothing line, which will be carried at Urban Outfitters and Hot Topic.
“With our clothing line hitting Hot Topics and Urban Outfitters just in time for the holidays, we’re real excited to be back, and of course, this merchandise line is old school sexy,” Prince Markie Dee said.
In support of the new line, The Fat Boys have created a website, via RateMyMerch.com, that allows fans to vote on potential designs.
In you participate, you are also entered to win prizes, including iPods and Virgin Mobile phones.
“These shirts are tight,” said Kool Rock-Ski, another founding member of the group. “And I don’t mean tight ’cause we fat. This joint is off the hook. We got the original shirts from our world tours in the ’80s and some fresh new styles. We got so many styles we need help picking which ones to go with.”
According to a report from TheBoomBox.com, the Fat Boys are set to perform a special reunion show at the famous Fox Theater in Detroit in the near future. It will be the first time the group has performed in over 20 years.
