This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

September 1st – Wreckx-N-Effect release their Self-Titled full length debut album on Motown Records, 25 years ago, on this day in 1989.

Originally a four-man group when they released their Self-Titled EP, the previous year, Wreckx-N-Effect now consisted of Aqil “A-Plus” Davidson, Brandon Mitchell and Markell Riley, brother of famed producer Teddy Riley, who produced their debut full length set.

Singles from the album included “Juicy” and “New Jack Swing”.

The chart-topping “New Jack Swing” was the name of the musical style founded by Teddy Riley which was a combination New York style hip-hop, funk, r’n’b and DC’s go-go sound.

Redhead Kingpin also did production on the album.

Tragedy would hit the group less than a year after the release of their hit album when Wreckx-N-Effect member Brandon Mitchell was shot to death.
