Looks like I'm the only person in the world dedicating to preserving '80s rap novelty records. I mean, someone's gotta do it, right? There's a million histories of jazz, rock , punk/alternative, etc. Will there be no-one to tell the story of L.A. radio DJ Russ Parr and his def comedy band Bobby Jimmy And The Critters?
"Big Butt" was the big hit, and it still amuses. It should be noted that founding member of NWA (recently nominated for the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame!) Arabian Prince, and none other than Dr Dre himself are responsible for some of the songwriting here.
'80s electro beatz, a guy rappin' in a funny voice about big butts - come on, admit it. It's fun stuff. Even if it's actually kinda awful. But that's funny, too.

UPDATE 10/11/2012: Aw, durn, the song "Just 4 The Hell Of It" is a bad copy. Sorry. I'll see if I can record a better one.
