Old School Freestyle Jam

  • Old School: anything from an earlier time, usually remembered with respect
  • Freestyle: a form of dance-pop music that originated in the mid-1980s
  • Jam: a delicious fruit-based spread
  • The lineup: Biz Markie, The Sugarhill Gang, Slick Rick, Black Sheep, George Lamond, Cynthia, Judy Torres, TKA, and Johnny O
  • How you know Biz Markie: you were within earshot of a radio in 1989 and heard his hit "Just a Friend"
  • The Sugarhill Gang's claim to fame: they released the first hip-hop single—1979's "Rapper's Delight"— to become a hit on the Top 40
  • What Allmusic dubbed Grammy-nominated rapper Slick Rick: "hip-hop's greatest storyteller."
  • Black Sheep hits sure to get your hands in the air: "Flavor of the Month" and "The Choice Is Yours (Revisited)"
  • How you know George Lamond: as an influential freestyle singer known for blending pop and R&B with the sounds of reggaeton, bachata, and salsa
  • The age at which freestyle singer Cynthia began her career: 16
  • Judy Torres' other name: The Queen of Freestyle
  • Group TKA gets the crowd moving by: singing hits "Louder Than Love," "Give Your Love to Me," and "Maria"; instructing the crowd to dance until someone guesses correctly what the letters in their name stand for
  • Johnny O's infectious songs include "Fantasy Girl," "Highways of Love," and "Dreamboy/Dreamgirl," a duet with fellow freestyle singer Cynthia
