Victor put me on to L'Trimm while in the lab working on DR the other night. We started working on a new joint called ASTRO BROWN that's heavily influenced by them. L'Trimm was a Miami Bass duo consisting of Lady Tigra and Bunny D. Their first record, Grab It! in 1988, was made when they were eighteen. Most recently, Lady Tigra did the jingle for Pinkberry.

Zach put me on to JJ FAD like three years ago and I just remembered fools while digging for some L'Trimm. Just Jammin Fresh and Def was an L.A. trio of fem-rappers with names like MC J.B., Baby-D and Sassy C. They were on Ruthless Records and produced by Dr. Dre. The following joint, Supersonic, was released in 1988 and peaked on the billboard at #31.
A DJ called "Fancy" at the NYC bar Lady Tigra manages was responsible, with Matt Goias, for forming Fannypack. Fannypack's a revivalist Miami Bass group from the early 2000s. They did that joint Cameltoe. One of the three girls in Fannypack later joined Holy Hail, who are signed to Kanine Records.

*Hey Ladies is the name of a Beastie Boys song from one of the best three rap albums ever: Paul's Boutique. Paul's Boutique will be reissued for its 20th (wow!) anniversary. "We remastered it too," MCA added. "So now it actually does have enough bass to shatter your one frozen testicle." Expect a long detailed post on the awesomeness of Paul's Boutique from myself or Dap, who's prone to calling it legitimately THE BEST ALBUM EVER.
