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, 1990’s I Don’t 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 Milk’s On The Mic’ and ‘Whatcha Lookin’ At?’. The duo’s career ground to a halt following the release of 1992’s The First Dead Indian. MC Milk Dee released the solo Never Dated on Rick Rubin’s Def American label in 1994.
