Kid 'N Play Biography
Among raps most innocuous outfits, Kid N Play came to light in 1988 through an album that to date represents their best work; and typified their happy-go-lucky, cartoon style. So much so that the group was offered their own cartoon series, following their appearance in House Party (Kid N Plays Funhouse is a spin-off from the film, including actual dialogue). Kid (Christopher Reid) and Play (b. Christopher Martin) concentrate heartily on a youthful style of braggadocio, typified on their debut album by the two-timing morality sequence, Undercover (which featured guest vocals by the Real Roxanne), or the self-explanatory Rollin With Kid N Play. Their music is underpinned by the production of mentor Hurby Luv Bug, while their practical messages like Dont do drugs and Stay in school are unlikely to offend middle-class American sentiments.
