Editors’ Notes

Before he blew up as a Calvin Klein model and word-renowned movie star, Mark Wahlberg hit the scene as a rugged but radio-friendly MC, on this album originally released in 1991. Fronting the Funky Bunch (alongside Scottie Gee, Hector the Booty Inspector, Ashley Ace, and DJ-T), he dropped this collection of 11 tracks that run the gamut from club-approved party anthems (smash hit "Good Vibrations") to syrupy romance raps ("Make Me Say Ooh!") and excursions into the short-lived "hip-house" movement ("On the House Tip").
