YOUNG GRAND PUBA...


Ahh, early Grand Puba, the Masters of Ceremony, Early Brand Nubian...with a new joint on the Missy Elliot album with Mary J Blige and a "resurrected" solo career with Flip Mode Squad, makes one reminisce about the early days of Puba's career.


It all started with Jazzy Jay in 1986, who signed Puba, his cousin Dr. Who, DJ Shabazz and early american dancehall rapper, Don Barron, as The Masters of Ceremony. After two hit singles and an album on Jay's Strong City imprint, Puba continued to record with Jay and bring by some of his New Rochelle up and coming MC's (solo artists Derek X and lord Jamar included)

One piece of strange recorded Puba history is "Oh Susanna" credited to Mr. Freeze (of Rock Steady fame) and the Homewreckers, produced by Jazzy Jay. Next came Brand Nubian, some ghost writing for his cousin, CL Smooth's DJ (see publishing for the creator) and some successful solo work.

Sorry sweetie but Mr. Freeze has no affiliation to the rock steady crew. Oh Susanna is a song from the original Mr freeze from the jazzy 5 mcs who did jazzy sensation. After the jazzy five broke up, Mr freeze went solo, hence oh Susanna. He is known for his chuck a luck verse on jazzy sensation and also refers to himself as chuck. Although there is a frosty freeze who recently passed away who is a member of the rocksteady crew.
