Freddie B and the Mighty Mic Masters
Freddie B and the Mighty Mic Masters are a fairly obscure group who’s biggest record was the addictive “The Main Event”, which featured the late, great Pumpkin on drums.
While their first single was a forgettable Spyder-D produced drum machine excursion named “It’s The Hip-Hop”, they’re later releases featured beats from Pumpkin, Paul C and Ced Gee (who’s two contributions are mistakenly credited to Paul C and Aaron Fuchs on this LP), which elevates these records from footnote to essential status.
Captain GeeWiz (Andrew Risper)
They never came out with an album but there output was regular.
Records of note include “The Main Event”, “Freddy’s Back”, “We’re Back Y’all”, “It’s the hip hop” and “Coolin on the Ave”.
There lead rapper Captain GeeWiz also had a solo record on Tuff City in 1988.
He is currently working on a solo project and is need of a label.
Here’s what he had to say about it:
Let me assure all those who followed our music that like fine wine, I’ve only gotten better with age.
