Consumer Guide Reviews:

Lyrical King [Fresh, 1987]
Without making a novelty of themselves, these three guys--not just the king, who's no special wit, but beatmaster Louie Lou and beatbox Greg Nice--are f-u-n fun. Electronic noises, vocal noises, good-natured ethnic caricatures, and a country boy with hair on his butt who keeps on and on till the record's gone. B+
