Uncle Ralph McDaniel‘s Video Music Box broadcast this live showcase of the JIVE/RCA rap roster at what looks like a school prom if those tuxedo’s in the front row are anything to go by. Steady B rocks his standard ‘beeper on the hat’ style while DJ Tat Money goes in, KRS previews cuts from By All Means Necessary with DJ Doc backing him up, Will Smith brings out Ready Rock C and his dancers and Kool Moe Dee sports a cow hide jacket (?).

Wow!!!Those were the days! This seems like a life time ago! What year was this? 1988 ? Or maybe 89?

Why the fuck would Steady B start robbing banks?

Wouldn’t the police show up and ask if they saw guy who robber them,
at which point the bank teller would say:

“Yeah it was Steady B! Remember the video for Serious? That was awesome!”

Fucking gangsta rap ruined rap more then vanilla ice, mc hammer and jay z combined!
