Always a great show. I looked up to these guys as a young kid. It was Run Dmc and these guys who really started it for me in the early 80s.

About The Band Whodini Music Group
Coming off the fertile New York rap scene in the early ’80s, Whodini was one of the first rap groups to turn R&B into their music, laying the groundwork for a new genre, the new jack swing.
The band made a name for themselves with good humorous songs such as “Magic’s Wand” (the first rap song to accompany the video), “The Haunted House of Rock”, “Friends”, “Five Minutes Of Funk” and “Freaks Out Out Night”.
The band’s live performances were the first rap concerts with breakdance dancers from UTFO. The band was led by Russell Simmons in the 1980s.
The band has released six studio albums. The band’s 14 singles appeared in the charts of the American magazine Billboard. The band’s four albums were platinum certified by the RIAA for their Billboard Hot 100 single “Friends”.
