I had also planned to include Finesse & Synquis‘ “Soft But Deadly” as another example of Ced helping out some around the way broads, but I’ve only got it on 7″ and that shit kept skipping, so no dice. Nevertheless, Baby Doll and her brother deliver their own take on the classic battle of the sexes theme with “You Can’t Break A B-Boy’s Heart”, which is backed by an early Ced-Gee/Scott La Rock SP-1200 composition.
I’m not sure which of the chicks in these photos is Baby Doll, but I’m almost certain that the foxy big-haired broad in the mini-skirt is Five Star Moet. Here’s the story on Baby according to the bizarre bio on the back cover of the B-Girls Live & Kicking LP (reprinted exactly as it appears):
Baby Doll is a native Detroit female she’s been part of the New York Hip Hop scene for a number of years back and forth between Detroit and the New York scene. So she’s no stranger to hard core. After being part of New York hard core she’s already a star at home
in Cleveland. This tune you can’t break a B. Boy’s heart being produced by Boogie Down Production and CED GEE both Productions felt that Baby Doll [Kim] is the one artist that they both wanted to produce for.
Both teams were amazed by her because she will be doing both rapp and dance music, the guy rapping with her is is her brother [Zulu 2] or [Kid] also from Detroit with New York hard core exposure. Look out for this sexy female to be on top very soon, B. Girls from B. Boy.
Other tracks from the album include Five Star Moet’s “Moet Gets Busy” and L.A. Star’s “Write That Rhyme”, a couple of diss records directed at Roxanne Shante and Salt ‘N Pepa, repectively. Production on the rest of the record is handled by Keyboard Money Mike, Al Street Rap (?) and Spyder-D (aka Mr. Sparky Dee). Hardly essential, but as far as female rap projects go, this is one of the better ones.
