Das EFX's wildly playful, rapid-fire stuttering - dense with rhymes and nonsense words - was one of the most distinctive and influential lyrical styles in early-'90s hip-hop. The duo were regarded for completely rewriting the MC rule book, elements of their style crept into countless rappers' bags of tricks.
Krazy Drazyz and Skoob were both raised in Brooklyn, but didn't begin performing together until they met at Virginia State University in 1988. Removed from an active music scene, the two were free to develop their most idiosyncratic tendencies; they started making up gibberish words (anything ending in "-iggity" was a favorite) that added loads of extra syllables to their lines, and wove plenty of pop cultural references into the tongue-twisting lyrical gymnastics that resulted.
