World's Famous Supreme Team

World's Famous Supreme Team

Profile:
The "World's Famous Supreme Team" originated in 1979 in New York by See Divine the Mastermind (Se'Divine Price) and JazzyJust Just Allah the Superstar (R. Larkins).
In its early days, the formation hosted its own show on New Jersey station WHBI, alongside the legendary Mr. Magic, before the latter shifted to WBLS. The idea of the group's partnership with Malcolm McLaren was to make a modern hip-hop record with Shakespearean and Opera themes, as demonstrated by the promotional single "Opera House." Main vocalist Mona Lisa Young was saddled, however, by some uninspiring material, co-written between McLaren and MC Hamlet (Jason Van Sugars). The album included a return to the happier times of "Buffalo Girls." Indeed, McLaren had formerly employed the Supreme Team on his Duck Rock album, where it rhymed over T-Ski Valley's "Catch the Beat." The group was also one of the first acts to espouse the beliefs and philosophy of the Nation of Gods and Earths.
