The sons of First Priority label boss Nat Robinson, and brothers of US rapper MC Lyte, Milk Dee and DJ Gizmo Dee certainly began their careers in 1988 with a pedigree. Though occasionally falling foul of the political correctness lobby, there was much to admire in their descriptions of Brooklyn inner-city life, with a good eye for detail, particularly on breakthrough singles Top Billin and Hickeys Around My Neck. Their second album, 1990s I Dont Care - The Album, contained a career high and low, the elegiac, distressing Get Your Mother Off The Crack, soured by the openly anti-gay When Milks On The Mic and Whatcha Lookin At?. The duos career ground to a halt following the release of 1992s The First Dead Indian. MC Milk Dee released the solo Never Dated on Rick Rubins Def American label in 1994.
