Break out your videotape of Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (the one you stole from Q Records in 1989), because according to Grand Buffet's Website, www.grandbuffet.com, the Pittsburgh-based rap duo is going to be doing a lot of smashing this year; in the South, in Canada, and in their "second favorite country," Europe. This information is "hella important" because it means millions of people will be hit in the face with joints like "Headballs," "Things That Go Hump in the Night," and "You're on Fire." Listeners will notice a similarity to the Beastie Boys and dear-departed colleague Wesley Willis in their delivery and production, but these oft-called "novelty artists" have made the leap to genuine hip-hop since their self-released 2001 debut, Sparkle Classic. See what all the fuss is about, but remember: No Kangols, no Adidas, no service!
