The Fat Boys To Perform Concert At Twitter Headquarters

Exclusive: Kool Rock-ski and Prince Markie Dee will join Special Ed for a September show in the Bay, organized by Twitter.

This weekend, The Fat Boys' manager Uncle Louie told HipHopDX that the Rap icons have been invited, along with Special Ed to perform at Twitter headquarters, for what he called an "old school takeover." Details are still finalizing, but the event will take place this September, and both living Fat Boys Kool Rock-ski and Prince Markie Dee are confirmed.

The event will take place in Twitter's home city, San Francisco, with sponsorship confirmed by Domino's Pizza, New Hall Coffee, Kimpton Hotels, SCE Stations and Louie's own Uncle Louie Music Group. Other old school Hip Hop acts are said to be confirming.

In honor of the event's host, fans are encouraged to follow @TheFatBoys, @PrinceMarkieDee, @KoolRockSki and @UncleLouie.

Last year, Kool Rock-ski told DX about the group's impact on Hip Hop. "I think the fact that every parent saw in us just pure fun. Like, those guys are clean. They’re not rapping about sexual [stuff]. They’re not rapping about raising hell. [Laughs] They’re just being who they are. They just being funny. And they’re young. A lot of kids gravitated to us ‘cause they just seen these young faces. [And so] the legacy for us is just that a lot of people gravitated towards us because we brought that fun element into Hip Hop."

HipHopDX will keep you updated.

  • BONKEIRA

    Ok. Fatboys, not hating but they could of got someone who's a little doper from the 80's. Is this event gonna be serving craft dinnner, little tuna sandwhiches and a big rubbermade can full of tang? Special guest appearance by father mc lol? Raffle contest to win a pair of mc hammer pants?

    • BONKEIRA

      Thank you for naming yourself after me holmes, obviously you read a lot of my comments. Check this out, fat boys were a commercial act from the 80's, a vanilla ice if you will, or a lmfao by today's standards. They were nothing more than a fad in pop culture, a t-shirt, a movie, a lunch box. They'll never be cool g rap, big daddy kane, biz markie etc... you know, actual pioneers, and please dude, you know i got jokes with that tang shit

    • Bonked Ur Bonker

      and TANG is still a delicious drink as it was years ago and still is today might I add...If it wasn't then they still wouldn't be selling it in Supermarkets...

    • Bonked Ur Bonker

      Uhh...At least they have the decency to shed some light on the old school rappers who don't get a little or enough credit that they actually deserve from the work that they did put into the Hip-Hop culture within the 80's...I mean how often or if not ever do you hear names like The Fat Boys or for instance the name you just mentioned Father MC...I'm surprised that they didn't throw Chubb Rock or 3rd Bass in there as well...And get your head out of your ass because you were hating a little...The Fat Boys weren't that bad...I would rather go back to listen to The Fat Boys now than to go listen to the shit microwave rap that they have being thrown on a silver platter and shoved down your fuckin' throat today! At least The Fat Boys were able to rap and get fed in an 80's era where it was more easy just to sell music without worry about conniving fucks stealing and downloading your shit for free over a computer and these are the people that are contributing to killing record sales and officially pushing rap out of making any kind of big money...

    Twitter is Awesome!!!! Old school hip hop + domino's pizza = Fuck ur FaceBook ha!

  • RocJay

    Look you don't see Kurtis Blow, Rapping Duke, Dnice, RUN dmc, Big Daddy kane and them niggas flowing, do you??? KRS and LL are the only other cats I give a pass cause they can still writee noteworty music. Get your facts straight. Dnice I know gave it up because he has a career in photography. Big Daddy Kane is touring more than your favorite rapper - CONSTANTLY. The others I don't know about, but I find it hard to believe KB isn't rocking a show here and there although on the other hand, he seemed like he was already in his late 20s in the mid twenties, so maybe he did fully retire. The article also said THEY WERE INVITED. Did you miss that?

  • manwhatthefuck!!!

    These niggas still rapping???? Damn they grandkids got kids man. WTF? Niggas don't know how to say it's a rap. I mean I ain't fuck with them back then cause they ain't say shit. These nigga made athems for diabetics. They talked about eating food and shit. They trash to me. I mean. Them niggas still rapping??? Look you don't see Kurtis Blow, Rapping Duke, Dnice, RUN dmc, Big Daddy kane and them niggas flowing, do you??? KRS and LL are the only other cats I give a pass cause they can still write noteworty music. Well Jay Z is from that era too cause that wack ass Hawaillian sopie fame bullshit. But none of them other niggas get passes. Call it quits and go into other buisness ventures. Hiphop ain't like othe Genres cause everyone can't realte to most of the bullshit niggas be saying. A nigga can get away not being able to sing a lick...But a nigga wqho can't rap?? Nope. It's way too many Waka Flacka's and not too many Pac's.... Plus the human beat box is dead. Nobody fucks with them other cats. SMH. All the fat Boys stans spare me. These damn near 60 year old niggas should not be rapping. Well unless they getting a grip. No disrespect… But damn some cats need to call it quit. Like I said..... LL, Jay Z, KRs, and ummm Rakim if he can get better beats are the only exception, period. Imagine if masta P or too short drop a album... That shi t would equal BRIck!!!! Now if they wanna do features...them niggas are fine but I don't give a damn if it was a one in a lifetime to win a million dollars to hear the fat boys rap...niggas will not show up. Smh.
