Bonus Trivia


Reid's 1964 song, "Blowfly's Rapp," is widely considered to be the first rap song ever recorded.


After being being pressured with foreclosure on his house in 2014, Reid took to a crowdfunding website to ask for fan donations.


Prior to becoming a "dirty rapper," Reid wrote and produced songs for mainstream R&B acts like K.C. and the Sunshine Band and Sam and Dave.
