3rd Bass

3rd Bass

Members: Michael Berrin (pka MC Serch), Peter Nash (pka Prime Minister Pete Nice), Rich Lawson (pka DJ Richie Rich or Daddy Rich)

3rd Bass was formed in 1987 in Queens, NY, United States, and disbanded in 1992 after releasing two full length albums (1989's "The Cactus Album" and 1991's "Derelicts Of Dialect") and a handful of memorable singles.

Notably, 3rd Bass gave time on early wax to two eventual legends: Zev Love X (later known as the great MF Doom) from KMD first appeared on "The Gas Face" in 1989, and Nas's second studio appearance was on the MC Serch song "Back To The Grill" in 1992.
