The Fat Boys are an American hip hop trio from Brooklyn, New York City, that emerged in the early 1980s. The group was briefly known originally as the Disco 3, originally composed of Mark "Prince Markie Dee" Morales, Damon "Kool Rock-Ski" Wimbley and Darren "Buff Love" Robinson, who died of a heart attack during a bout with respiratory flu in 1995. The trio is widely known for using beatbox in their songs. The group opened doors for beatboxers like Biz Markie and Doug E. Fresh
Because the Fat Boys acted like buffoons, some people dismissed them as a mere novelty act. But for all their clowning, the Fat Boys had impeccable rapping technique - the skills that they bring to "Yes, Yes Y'all," the title song, and other wildly infectious offerings are first rate.
In 1990, the Fat Boys sued Miller Brewing Company for, among other things, unlawful use of the Hugga-Hugga. More mocked than understood, the noises at stake in that lawsuit can be heard in all their thunder and glory on Stick ‘Em, a track from the Fat Boys first album, revived this month by Traffic Entertainment. The CD reissue comes in a pizza box, a triumph of packaging that could hold a 6-inch mini (thin crust). It’s a tribute of sorts to the Human Beat Box, who died of cardiac arrest in December of 1995

The Fat Boys At Forty. Charles Stettler and Art Kass were listed as the executive producers on the 1984 Fat Boys album. Unlike many of the streetwise images of the genre, the Fat Boys were known for their offbeat and friendly style. Much of their material involved the pleasures of food and drink as well as partying and sexual escapades. Buffy, the Human Beatbox, was a pioneer in beatboxing (using his mouth to portray the typical hip hop percussion "scratch 'n mix" sounds). His distinctive talent was influential to the genre as well as a noticeable hook to get the Fat Boys noticed
