This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History


May 23rd – The Disco 3 win first prize at The Tin Pan Apple After Dark Dance & Rap Contest at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on this day in 1983.

The hefty three man squad would win stereo equipment as well as a one-off record deal which resulted in a 12 inch single called “Reality”.

After the release failed to make any significant noise in the industry, their managers Charles Stettler and Linda West would bring them to rap legend Kurtis Blow who would produce their Self-Titled debut album, released the following year, and rename them The Fat Boys.
