Q (Magazine) - p.115"[I]ts boom-bap rhythms, funky basslines and good humour jogged hip-hop's needle towards the radio-friendly rhymes of Tone Loc and Young MC and the wry storytelling of A Tribe Called Quest."
XXL (Magazine Publisher) (p.91) - "Produced by rapper Kurtis Blow, their self-titled debut combined Mark 'Prince Markie Dee' Morales and Damon 'Kool Rock-Ski' Wimbley's raw rhymes with Darren 'The Human Beat Box' Robinson's booming vocal percussion."

It's easy to forget that at one time hip-hop was considered an underground phenomenon, but in the mid-80s, a few important records broke rap music into the mainstream. Though often dismissed as a novelty, THE FAT BOYS was one of the most influential and most fun. With a trade-off style similar to Run-DMC, the Boys extolled the virtues of all manner of good times over choice old-skool tracks courtesy of the legendary Kurtis Blow. Perhaps the record's most notable contribution, however, was the song "Human Beatbox," which in addition to sparking the humorous catchphrase "stick 'em ha-ha-ha stick 'em," introduced the masses to the then-new art form of "beatboxing," or creating hip-hop tracks solely with vocally-produced sounds.
