Doug E. Fresh & The Get Fresh Crew

The first human beatbox in the rap world, and still the best of all time, Doug E. Fresh amazed audiences with his note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects, and often large samples of hip-hop classics. Fresh was born Doug E. Davis in Barbados, and his first appearance came in 1983 on a single for Spotlight called "Pass the Budda," with Spoonie Gee and DJ Spivey. His introduction to most hip-hop fans, though, came one year later with his astonishing performance in Beat Street behind the Treacherous Three. His first solo features also came in 1984, with "Just Having Fun," waxed for Enjoy, and "Original Human Beatbox" for Vinentertainment.

By 1985, Fresh was one of the biggest names in rap music, and his first single for Reality, "The Show/La Di Da Di," became a hip-hop classic. It was recorded with his Get Fresh Crew, including MC Ricky D (only later to gain fame as Slick Rick), along with Barry Bee and Chill Will. His first LP, 1987's Oh, My God!, featured most of his showpieces, like "Play This Only at Night" and "All the Way to Heaven," along with nods to reggae and even gospel. His second album, 1988's The World's Greatest Entertainer, broke into the Billboard charts thanks to another hot single, "Keep Risin' to the Top," but Slick Rick had already broken from the pack and his LP of the same year, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, did much better than Doug E. Fresh. Fresh took a break and wasn't able to regain momentum with 1992's Doin' What I Gotta Do, released through MC Hammer's Bust It label. He did reunite on a Slick Rick LP, and recorded again in 1995 for Gee Street. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Back in the day 80's & 90's, not only did the rappers have dope beats, but their lyrics were pretty fly and worth trying to learn and rap with the artist, unlike these 20xx rappers!! While some of them do have some dope beats too, their lyrics and rapping skills are straight GARBAGE!!!
Go Dougie Go Dougie Go Dougie We're The Same Age This Is My Old School Music Cause We're Get Fresh Crew !!!!!
WooooW I Hav'nt Heard This Since Back In My Old School Day's When I Was In The Club Taring That Rug Up Doing That Old School Dance Off Of This Cut Great Memories Thanks Pandora !!!!!!
1982 the year the Disco 3, started in local areas of Brooklyn, the Bronx, NYC. Darren Robinson was the first to beat box, for two years with no dj in the group called Disco 3. Disco 3 later became to be picked up by Rich Rubin and Kurtis Blow with Tin Pan Apple recording company. Disco 3 later became The Fat Boys, Darren Robinson aka Buffy. Not taking anything away from Doug E. Fresh, but he was not the original. Nor the best., Rahzel, the human sound machine, maybe the best. Biz Markie as well

Love Doug E BUT he came on the Mike Epps concert ticket and didn't rap one lyric to one song. He was like a hype man. We were soooo disappointed . I bought the ticket to hear him rock the mike!

"Now let the beat drop..." The new school rappers aren't artists, just criminals. They should sit back and listen and let Doug E. Fresh give them a show and show them how it's done!
