Marvin Young, best known as rapper Young MC, had a huge start to his music career with his 1989 debut album "Stone Cold Rhymin'". It had two major mainstream hits with "Bust A Move" and "Principal's Office". However, his follow up album, 1991's "Brainstorm", barely made a ripple on the charts, and 1993's "What's The Flavor?" was a complete flop, despite receiving positive reviews. After enduring a rough couple of years, in which Young's father murdered his mother and received a lengthy prison sentence, he resurfaced in 1996, releasing a single on an independent music label, which also failed to achieve much success.
