Freddie B and the Mighty Mic Masters

imagesFreddy B  The Mighty Mic Masters Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Freddy B and the Mighty Mic Masters were a mainstay on Aaron Fuchs’ Tuff City Label.

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.
