Doug E. Fresh And The Get Fresh Crew

Profile:
Doug E. Fresh was born Doug E. Davis in Barbados, and his first appearance came in 1983 on a single on Top Flight Records called "Pass the Boo-Dah" (based on "Pass the Dutchy"), with Spoonie Gee and DJ Spivey. His first solo release came in 1984, with "Just Having Fun," on Soundmakers/Enjoy Records, and "Original Human Beatbox" on Vintertainment. By 1985, Fresh was one of the biggest names in rap music, and his first single for Reality, "The Show/La Di Da Di" became a hip hop classic. It was recorded with the Get Fresh Crew, which included MC Ricky D (only later to gain fame as Slick Rick), along with Barry Bee and Chill Will. His first LP, 1986's "Oh, My God!", featured most of his showpieces, like "Play This Only at Night" and "All the Way to Heaven". His second album, 1988's "The World's Greatest Entertainer", broke into the Billboard charts thanks to another hot single, "Keep Risin' To The Top". He did reunite on a Slick Rick LP, and recorded again in 1995 for Gee Street.
