The record was ..1 on Frankie Crockers WBLS...a NY station that didnt play much rap before Mr Magic. Rockin It lifted a classic break from Kraftwerk and mixed the magic of Enjoys house band ; for a classic that is still sampled and cut today. After the brief stay at Enjoy , the Four signed with Elektra and released the " Just Rock " 12" which included "Gotta Turnout". Just Rock was a redo of Gary Numans pop hit " Cars ".
The real bomb was dropped in ' 83 with the " Problems Of The World " Ep. Classic material !!!! The title track was similar in subject to the Message , but not as harsh. It covered subjects like child abuse , stress filled relationships and computers causing layoffs. " Fearless Freestyle " showed off the raw talents of the crew especially frontman D.LB...." Back bone of the team and I will make you scream , versatile as the thing they call ice cream...in a bowl , on a cone , ala mode....
all alone / slow rhymes and funky beats on the microphone ". Easily a contender with todays so called thugs. F - 4000 was a vocorder ( computer voice ) jam produced by Davy DMX ( actually the whole ep was ). Problems was one of few rap songs at the time that had a video.
After that single they signed to Tuff City and released " Dedication " ...a harmonizing joint dedicated to their fans. In the late 80s they released " After Tonight " on Mercury Records. O.C. and Krazy Eddie had succsess in the mid 80s with " Masters Of The Scratch " and " Private Lessons ".
Peso did some solos as well. The 4 were featured on the Raiders of the lost art lp in the mid 90s. Tito has worked with the Terror Squad and Kool G. Rap. Read more: http://www.myspace.com/fearless4#ixzz0u9ZyUs2X Read more on Last.fm.
