Today, October 21, marks the day 14 years ago rap supergroup, The Firm, (which featured NaS, AZ, Foxy Brown, Nature) released their infamous flop of a debut album, The Firm: The Album. Though the album was largely produced by Dr. Dre and topped the Billboard 200, it was very poorly recieved by critics and the public. Today also marks the day 23 years ago that hip-hop duo, Kid ‘n Play, released their debut album, 2 Hype. Though the group made headlines for their soft “bubble gum” rap and now comedian, Christopher “Kid” Reid’s, high eraser top fade, the album managed to sell 500,000 copies and peak at 96 on the Billboard 200. The song “Rollin’ with Kid ‘n Play” even earned the 63rd spot on VH1’s “Top 100 Rap Songs of All-Time”.
