"The Fat Boys are one of my favorite old school hip hop groups. Their first cd is a classic. I am only giving this cd 2 stars because the songs FAT BOYS, CAN YOU FEEL IT, JAIL HOUSE RAP and a couple of other songs are not the full version, they are the cut short version. I bought this cd thinking all the songs was the full version. I feel i was ripped off. So true Fat Boys fans beaware, STAY AWAY. Buy the vinyl version of the Fat Boys first cd to get the full versions."

"Like Austin Powers, Freddie and the Dreamers, and the Three Stooges (with Curly), do not rate this CD by normal, serious critical standards. This is all about FUN and LAUGHS from something so OUTRAGEOUSLY bad that it's GOOD! The Human Beat Box, for those of us who remember, had a wild sound that defies written description. The HBB, along with Kool Rock Ski and Prince Markie Dee (I can't believe I remember these names!) use this to great effect in songs like "Can You Feel It," "Fat Boys," my favorite "Don't Be Stupid," and "Wipe Out!" This is rap strictly for the sake of having a good time, something that is rarely heard these days. Yes folks, this music is good and stupid as it was meant to be, so don't rate this with the same standards as you would with Natalie Cole."
The most misunderstood/underrated rap supergroup in history!

"Don't believe for a second that the FAT BOYS were just a gimmick or a "one hit wonder" due to their hit "WIPEOUT".The FAT BOYS were so much more -- mentored by Kurtis Blow and centered around Buff the Human Beat Box, the FAT BOYS:1) Represented a time when it was okay for hip hop to be about having fun and accepting yourself;2) Are credited with creating the art of Beatboxing (yes this is definitely disputible!);3) Were talented rappers who always came off with great rhymes, quality songs, and were so seriously underrated that most people these days don't even know what they are missing.You should really not hesitate to get this release if you in any way, shape or form, consider yourself a fan of REAL hip-hop."
