"Excuse Me Doug E Fresh"

"Oh, Oh, Oh My God." I can't believe i actually have the The Show/La-Di-Da-Di 12". Everyone and their mamas (literally) have heard one or both these songs. Let's take a stroll down memory lane (thanks for quote Biz Markie) and see how this came to be. Doug E Fresh used to run with a Boo-Dah Bliss Crew in 1983. He then (as stated in "The Show") decided to come up with the Get Fresh Crew. This crew consisted of DJs Barry B. and Chill Will. This crew also consisted of MC Ricky D. Of course, now everyone knows this MC to be the one and only Slick Rick. Doug E Fresh decided to cut a record with this crew that would go on to become one of hip hop's most enduring singles of all time: The Show and La-Di-Da-Di. These songs have been sample by countless artist (to this day they still make cheddar of this) and even redone by Snoop Doggy Dogg (i use his orginial name since he covered the song with this name). So where the Hell am I going with this you (since only two people reader read this) ask? How the Hell am I suppose to know. Sike, Sike (Does anybody even say this anymore) just playing, but for real here is where I am going. I present this fabolous 12" in all it's glory with a little some thing extra:
