Old School Mondays:: Kid N' Play (2 Hype Edition)

Greetings. It's the Labor Day weekend up here (and elsewhere) so today's a holiday and I'm going to keep the writing brief. But I'll make up for it in musical accompaniment, as this OSM is packed with music & videos. I know the following video has made the rounds on the interweb, but it inspired this post, so it's required viewing (props to herohill alumnus Mr. E for sending it over):

Funny or sad? I think for me it was certainly both. Kid N' Play were once megastars where hip hop is concerned. The kick step, House Party, their own cartoon - Christopher "Kid" Reid and Christopher "Play" Martin had it all for a while. But like plenty of Golden Age icons, it didn't last, and now Kid's IMDB profile reads like a B-list celebs wet dream: Host of Your Big Break, playing a celebrity judge in Pauly Shore is Dead, guest spots on shows such as V.I.P. and Sister Sister. Ay yi yi. But oh well, Kid N' Play's 2 Hype played a large role in my Junior High experience, likely being herohill alumnus Shawn Lapaix's favorite album, so we played the hell out of it. I realized we'd nevern OSM'd it before, so here's all the best stuff from it. Enjoy.
