1. Fat Boys Just Wanna Have Fun
@UncleLouie lol So here we go! We know there a a pizz-llion reasons, but what's the FIRST biggest reason peeps NEED this #FatBoys rerelease?
@Sohh @sohhdotcom before we get this started, gotta dedicate this to my man Buff. Rest in peace man, we miss you. @UncleLouie @KoolRockSki
@SOHH the #1 reason is that its been 28 yrs & @PrinceMarkieDee & @KoolRockSki need more Pizza money! Plus, it's historically important music
@SOHH there has been a big renaissance of "old school" & we are in a period where our fans are older now, and nostalgic.
@SOHH @TheFatBoys truly came #FullCircle & at are blessed to now be revered as legends. We don't take that lightly. - @PrinceMarkieDee
2. Don't Call It A Comeback
@UncleLouie Word. Gotcha. Moving right along, what's the SECOND biggest reason? Seems like this re-release is dedicated to Buffy too. #SOHH5
@sohhdotcom @SOHH it has been a labor of love & @PrinceMarkieDee & @UncleLouie have worked for 3 years to get to this point of a "comeback"
@sohhdotcom @SOHH and with that said and with FatBoysClothing.com up and running, this is just the beginning of the Fat Renaissance hahaha
@sohhdotcom @SOHH to be fair, they're all equally important to us @KurtisBlow1 was a beast on the tracks! Each song reps a great memory
@SOHH Did I mention how hard Jailhouse Rap hits on @houseofmarley Destiny headphones? Chaching!!!! @sohhdotcom @TheFatBoys lol
3. Get Schooled
@UncleLouie No doubt, we can dig it. OK, mid-way point! What's the THIRD biggest reason #SOHH readers need it ASAP?
@SOHH @sohhdotcom we hope you have a fresh @dominos pizza while you ask these questions!
@SOHH #3 is the need to educate hip hop fans on the majesty of Buff's unparalleled ability to make a beat w/ his mouth hit harder than a 808
4. Get 'Em Up
@sohhdotcom: @UncleLouie Ah! Got the third one! Final two reasons!
"@sohhdotcom: @UncleLouie Ah! Got the third one! Final two reasons!" Brrrrrr Stick em!
@UncleLouie lol We know the stomachs are grumbling, guys! Give us your FINAL FINAL FINAAAAAAL reason!
@sohhdotcom @SOHH to be given the chance to show @TheFatBoys can still rock & influence our fan base made now the right time
@SOHH @sohhdotcom And you know they can never be whack! Peace.
