Kid'n Play: Rap Without The Crap!

Simon Witter, New Musical Express, 1988

Lean, mean and squeaky clean, the bullshit-free beats of Kid'n Play have earned them plenty of dubious accolades, from "the yuppies of rap" to "Salt'n'Pepa in male form". But, with an album as def as 2 Hype, do they care? Are you kidding? SIMON WITTER knocks on rap's funny bone.

Total word count of piece: 1992
