Hip Hop did not come to the forefront of the music industry till the eighties, by which time quite a few artists had managed to make their names in the mainstream. As it slowly started to overtake rock and pop music in popularity, it started to attract an even younger audience, which led to the rise in young talents entering the industry. One of these was a band that would go on to change the face of rap music forever. They were Kid N Play.

Kid N Play consists of two main members, Christopher "Kid" Reid and Christopher "Play" Martin. They had been together at high school and had been fans of hip hop from an early age. After perfecting their respective acts, they joined separate rap groups, known as ‘the Turnout Brothers’ and ‘the Super Lovers.’ While performing against one another on day, they had a chance meeting and realized that they had a lot in common. Soon they became fast friends and decided to start their own group, which they, at the time, named ‘the Fresh Force Crew.’

As the Fresh Force Crew, they released two songs that received some mainstream success, called “She's a Skeezer” and “Rock Me,” which came out in 1986. However after being disappointed with the reception they got, they decided to change their group’s name to Kid n Play started focusing on their next album. Called “2 Hype,” it was released in 1988 and was an instant hit. It made it in to the top one hundred on the Billboard charts, number nine on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and was certified gold in the US.
Their follow-up album, titled “Funhouse” came out in 1990 and it did even better than their last record, making it to number fifty eight on the Billboard charts and number eleven on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was also certified gold and laid the base for their last album, “Face the Nation,” which was released in 1991. This album was their most disappointing one to date and only made it to number one hundred and forty four on the Billboard charts and number twenty seven on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It did however have a number one single in the form of “Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody,” which topped the Hot Rap Singles chart.
