Skinny Boys Biography:
Skinny Boys are a 3 piece rap group originally out of Bridgeport, Connecticut, with members Shockin' Shawn, Super Jay, & The Human Jock Box. The Skinny Boys were directly influenced by The Fat Boys; and The Human Jock Box was directly influenced by The Human Beat Box from The Fat Boys. They started their career on the Bush Label, a small independent local label ran by Rhonda Bush.
The first release was a twelve inch single titled Awesome b/w "Skinny Boys" in 1985. New York based label Warlock soon recognized their talents and signed them to their label in 1986. That year they released two twelve inch singles Jockbox & Unity, as well as an LP title "Weightless". Featured on the Weightless LP were a handful of human beatbox songs like Jockbox & Get Funky. These songs are of particular importance because they incorporated several human beatbox beats never heard before or since, making The Skinny Boys' Human Jock Box, along with Doug E. Fresh, Buffy The Human Beat box, & Biz Markie, one of the most progressive human beat box men in rap history, and the LP "Weightless" one of the most important beatbox artifacts we have.
The group went on to sign with Jive Label and have a handful of peripheral releases including LP's "Skinny & Pround" & "Skinny (They cant get enough)".
