The Fat Boys inducted into Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame
Legendary hip-hop group The Fat Boys were inducted into the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame in Stony Brook Sunday.
The trio rose to stardom in the early 1980s. The group included Mark "Prince Markie Dee" Morales, Damon "Kool Rock Ski" Wimbley, and Darren "Buff Love" Robinson.
"Kool Rock Ski" is the last surviving member, and he accepted the award on behalf of the group.
"Their legacy lives on with an award like this," he said. "We got to the pinnacle of our success. And we got there the hard way by doing a lot of hard work. We did a lot of hard work."
The Fat Boys were one of the first groups to ever release full-length rap albums.
