Out of print in the U.S.! Debut release from the Rap/Pop crossover artist who was originally responsible for the initial success of labelmate Tone Loc. Once he had achieved success through Loc's hit singles, Young MC stepped out on his own, creating one of the catchiest, radio-friendly Rap singles ever: 'Bust A Move'. While he was soon overtaken by the next generation of Rap stars, the album is a wonder to behold and is still as infectious as it was when originally released in 1989. Universal.

"Unlike the "gangsta rap" which was gaining popularity at the time, this is one of those albums that you can file under "fun", and I'm glad for that. Much like Tone Loc's "Loc-Ed After Dark", this is still a great album even after the big hit is played. Obviously that hit here is "Bust A Move", and it's one of the excellent early rap hits. I still think of Flea slappin' his bass on the hood of that truck whenever I hear it. Young Mc even refers to himself as a one-hit-wonder, but it's impossible not to also love "Principal's Office", "Non Stop", "Know How", and many others. Other sweet tracks are the quick "Fastest Rhyme", and the laid-back "Got More Rhymes". If anyone asks you if this album is wack, "Just Say No"."

"Its a befuddling mix of shameless cheeziness, cool old-school production, and solid flow. What makes it so cool is that Young is eccentric for being such a mainstream pop rapper. Take for example is boast that "when I'm not on tour I'm at home watching cable". WHAT?!?!?? Are we supposed to be impressed by that!!?? He states this with such surety and bravado that you almost believe that its a notable accomplishment. Or how about this one: "If other rappers were hawaiian I would be Don Ho". There are too many clunky awkward boasts to count, but this is a great deal of the album's charm. Young isn't really ghetto, but he has skills and verbal cleverness in spades. Rolling every "R" is also a strange mannerism. With subject matter ranging from how many rhymes he has to the superiority of said rhymes, this one is a keeper."
