Brooklyn rap veterans, The Fat Boys, are gearing up for a re-release of their 1984 self-titled debut, but it will come as a special edition … in a pizza box.
The Fat Boys were a pioneering hip-hop trio comprised of Prince Markie Dee, Kool Rock-Sky and the late Buff Love. Their debut album’s cover art featured the trio eyeing various snacks, including a pizza. Now, the Sutra Records release, produced by Kurtis Blow, is being re-issued in a pizza box.
According to HipHopDX.com, the upcoming limited edition Fat Boys: Pizza Box Set will be served up in a special edition pizza box. Inside, it will feature a re-mastered version of the original LP, along with extended liner notes, photographs and some bonus material.
The album dropped in May 1984, and was eventually cerified Gold. It features the singles: “Fat Boys,” “Stick ’Em,” “Can You Feel It,” and “Jailhouse Rap”.
The re-issued version will include all seven original tracks, along with three bonus cuts, interviews, and a Mr. Magic Rap Attack Promo.
Fat Boys: Pizza Box Set drops July 10. Pre-order your copy at Amazon.com.
The Fat Boys had been away from the scenes for more than a decade … until February 2009, when they released a two-disc set, dubbed Original Fat Boys Archives: Fat Boys On Rewind.
Members Kool Rock-Ski and Prince Markie Dee still perform under the group moniker, and have released their own coffee.
