“When it comes to hip-hop and funk and pure fun, these guys just rocked it, and they still do today. Every single track on the album is immense. I don’t think they’ve had a better album since, in my opinion. It’s a wicked debut and they really raised the bar with this album. It’s just brilliant.
“Tracks like Fight for Your Right To Party, Hold It Now, Hit it… the list goes on really. It was a landmark, especially for Def Jam records.
“I think it was overlooked, and not a lot of people remember this album these days, but as soon as you hear Fight For Your Right To Party? For sure, you know that, but a lot of the songs on there got lost. You go back to it now and it just sounds as fresh today as it ever did.”
