EDITORS’ NOTES

The original obese rappers—paving the way for cats like Heavy D, Biggie, Fat Joe, and Big Pun—the Brooklyn trio Fat Boys got their start in the early '80s and were one of the first hip-hop groups to really blow up and crossover into the mainstream. Funny and fresh, they helped popularize beatboxing, dropped several hit singles, starred in movies like Krushgroove and Disorderlies, and collaborated with the likes of Chubby Checker, The Beach Boys, and Freddy Krueger. This collection, released in 2010, features 27 tracks from throughout their career, including absolutely classic, undeniably essential jams like "Can You Feel It," "All You Can Eat," "Human Beatbox," "Falling in Love," and the James Brown revamp "Sex Machine." Though they don't get always get the props and respect they deserve, make no mistake: Fat Boys are straight-up legends. Whether you're a fan from way back or a younger head who appreciates the true pioneers, this is a must-hear compilation.
