MC Serch, Pete Nice & DJ Richie Rich were the three founding members of the group known as 3rd Bass. Formed in Queens NYC around 1987, 3rd Bass were notable for being one of the first successful interracial rap groups. In early 1987, MC Serch tried unsuccessfully to join up with the Beastie Boys, yet later signed with Def Jam Records also inheriting the label's feud with the Beasties. Their debut, "The Cactus Album" was released in 1989 to critical-acclaim and went Gold on the success of the single "The Gas Face". Here we have the pseudo-video for the Cactus track "Wordz of Wisdom" which appeared on a VHS (yes, video tape) release. This is the full version as it appeared on the tape...nothing has been edited out. Have fun watching a humorous cameo by comedian Gilbert Gottfried. Enjoy, Placebo.
