80's Flashback

J.J. Fad, Supersonic, 1988. This track made J.J. Fad the first female rap group to be nominated for a Grammy. Originally J.J. Fad stood for "Juana, Juanita, Fatima Ann Dania," but after some member changes it was said to stand for "Just Jammin' Fresh And Def." Supersonic was a refreshing lighthearted tonic in the face of the nascent gangsta rap phenomenon, its success made all the more ironic in that it was produced by N.W.A. It also seriously challenged the abilities of folks who like to sing along. I saw my llama llama llama/Do my mama see me/Now my llama mama do/My llama llama mama see me/Now my llama mama do. Yeah, that's it. That's it.
