Fat Boys were a hip-hop trio from Brooklyn, New York, that emerged in the early 1980s. Its members were Mark 'Prince Markie Dee' Morales, Damon 'Kool Rock Ski' Wimbley, and Darren 'Buffy The Human Beat Box' Robinson. Buffy was a pioneer in beatboxing (using his mouth to portray the typical hip hop percussion "scratch 'n mix" sounds). Due to their good humored personalities, the trio starred in the films Krush Groove in 1985 and Disorderlies in 1987. They recorded the theme song for the movie, Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master in 1988, titled, 'Are You Ready for Freddy'. Their list of hits include:'Fat Boys', 'Stick 'Em', 'Can You Feel It', 'Jailhouse Rap', 'The Fat Boys Are Back','Falling In Love', and 'The Force MD's Meets The Fat Boys'. Their hits also include hip-hop covers of 1960s songs such as 'Wipe Out' by The Surfaris, 'The Twist' by Chubby Checker, and 'Louie Louie' by The Kingsmen. The group broke up by the late 1980s,with the members going their separate ways. Tragically, Buffy The Human Beatbox passed away from a heart attack in December 1995. Morales went on to a solo career after parting ways with the Fat Boys, and formed the musical concept group, Prince Markie Dee & The Soul Convention in the early 90s. He is also a radio host for WMIB 103.5 FM 'The Beat' in Miami, Florida. Kool Rock Ski still lives in New York and is working with an independent record label.
