This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

April 15th – Jacksonville, Florida “Miami Bass” duo 95 South release their debut album, “Quad City Knock”, on Wrap Records, on this day in 1993.

The duo of 95 South which was comprised of AB and Daddy Black would produce “Quad City Knock” along with The Bass Mechanics who would later become the 69 Boyz and then later the Quad City DJ’s.

The monster hit from the album would be “Whoot! There It Is”.

That same year, fellow Miami Bass duo Tag Team put out the similar sounding “Whoomp! (There It Is)”, on Life Records.

This prompted a duel in 1993 on “The Arsenio Hall Show” with 95 South winning by call-in votes where voters were charged to raise money for a Mid-West Flood Relief program.
