    Daddy-O from Stet has many times stated that Stet was the very first hiphop band forming in 1981(Though, Making It’s first plate in 1986 called, “Go Stetsa”, On Tommy Boy records), Which was the anthem for Brooklyn Stickup kids to, “Sting cats Ice”,(Gold chains), At the, Latin Quarters in Manhattan during the mid/late 80’s), While, Newcleus was

    Formed in 1979 under the name Newcleus(Which came after the name Jam-on Productions in 1977 in Brooklyn), Cosmo-D was a member of the old deephousepage board years ago(As well as a much respected cat on the oldschoolhiphop board years ago too), and Cosmo-D and Daddy-O go way back to the Brooklyn block throwdowns

    Days during the 70’s too, Cosmo always gets a laugh when I bring-up that Daddy-O states that Stet as the very first hiphop band in 1981/LOL, Maybe, Cosmo-D will see this thread and build for a few(Facts).

    Sugarhill, with Dough Wimbush, Keith LeBlanc and Skip McDonald…….! OK, they never “put out a plate” for themselves…..!

    And the Fatback Band was considered R&B, and not fully hip hop, despite King Tim III having an impact on the hip hop genre…..!

    Fletch, Duke Bootee, Doug Winbush, Keith LaBlanc ,Skip McDonald and Jiggs Chase(Who was the most talented cat in the Sugarhill crew crew via Jiggs Chase being the arranger,Producer,Musician, Composer, Writer), Etc, For the Sugarhill house band that all of those cats that I mentioned earlier were apart of during the late 70’s/mid 80’s),

    Fletch, The Sugarhill House band were not a hiphop crew like Stet and Newcleus were(All of cats down with the Sugarhill house band were veteran trained musicians, My man), Also, Mad cats including myself, Had never heard of King Tim, When, “King Tim The Third”, Came out in June of 1979(I thought, “King Tim”, Was a cat down with the

    Fatback band, Who just picked up the mic and started rhyming on a plate with , “King Tim The Third”, In 1979, My man/LOL), Fletch, The Fatback band were an R/B crew(You stated the Fatback Band were, “Considered”, An, R/B Crew earlier and not fully hiphop), Fletch, When was the Fatback Band looked upon as, “Hiphop”,After, “King Tim

    The third”, Who comes from Colonial Projects(155thst and 8thave in Harlem, Across the street from the Rucker), Also, Fletch, What musical genre was The Fatback Band categorized under, If the Fatback were considered R/B, My man, Fletch, I seen King Tim perform with the Fatback band, Rick James and Skyy at Avery Fisher hall in Manhattan

    On May of 1980 and King Tim bit most of Hollywood’s rhymes and cadence during the whole plate of, “King Tim the Third”, My man(Facts/LOL), Fletch, Frankie Crocker was the first cat to run, King Tim the Third”, In June of 1979,

    Which I stated before, Mad cats thought, “King Tim”, was a cat down with Fatback who grabbed the mic and started rhyming on the plate, “King Tim The Third”, and not being an actual MC from Harlem in 1979, My man(Facts)Also, The very reason why, “King Tim The Third’, Never received the notoriety and publicity that, “Rapper’s Delight”,

    Received In August of 1979 in New York city, Was, Again, Cats knew the Fatback Band as an R/B crew who made a plate with a cat rhyming on it(“King Tim The Third”), Regardless of cats being up on King Tim or not(Which many cats were not in 1979), My man(Facts), While the Sugarhill gang were a put together crew with 2 cats from New Jersey

    and Hank from the Bronx(Who was the manager of the Cold Crush 4 in 1979), Along with Slyvia and Joe Robinson, “Lacin”, Frankie Crocker’s pockets to run, “Rapper’s Delight”, On BLS in August of 1979 thru 1980, Mad lovely, My man(Facts).

    Fletch, All of those rhymes are Hollywood’s that King Tim is spittin(Money is sportin those cazels too, My man/LOL), Fletch, I wish my man Troy(Oldschoolhiphop.com), Had the opportunity to interview King Tim(Troy and

    King Tim could not get their schedules to connect to make the interview happen years ago, Since very few cats know anything about King Tim including myself, My man), Fletch, King Tim did the same rhymes when he performed at

    Avery Fisher Hall in May of 1980(Money was rockin that night, Though, with Hollywood’s rhymes, My man/Facts/LOL).
