Spicer was managed by Russell Simmons’ Rush Management.
His single “The Bubble Bunch” featured Jellybean Benitez’s first remix.
It is a thirteen minutes song that features extremely visual and imaginative storytelling.
Thus, he was a precursor to more well known storytellers coming later like Slick Rick and Dana Dane.
He also recorded a song called “Money (Dollar Bill Ya’ll)” which is also a funky track and worth a listen. It was released in 1983 on Spring Records.
He was briefly signed to Def Jam recording a single entitled “Beat the Clock” b/w “This Is It”. It was produced by Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin.
He appeared on the television show “20/20″ around 1985 rapping about Keith Haring the artist.
His last known record was a dance hall record with Beenie Man around 97 or 98.
He has three daughters, Angelina, Leticia, and Janel Spicer.
