When you think of hip-hop artists from the ‘90s, whose music spontaneously moves the crowd to the dance floor, Chubb Rock is one of a few that immediately come to mind. “Nineteen ninety Chubb Rock jumps up on the scene with a lean and a pocket full of green…” – his 1990 hit “Treat ‘Em Right” still elicits a great response from crowds.
Born Richard Simpson, on May 28, 1968, this former National Merit Scholar bounced onto the rap scene after dropping out of the prestigious Brown University. Since that time Chubb has gone on to create other chart topping hits including “Caught Up,” “Just the Two of Us” and “Ya Bad Chubbs.”
In an interview with Steve Harvey, comedian, actor, and host of the Steve Harvey Morning Show, Chubb Rock received high praise from Steve for strongly demonstrating his manhood with maturity, decorum and self-respect. He was also applauded, on air, by Michael Baisden, author, playwright, and former radio show host, for providing the listening audience with hip-hop music that our children can listen too with us, without lyrics filled with stories of violence, drugs, or other offensive behavior. After Chubb Rock’s performance on Michael Baisden’s Manhattan Anniversary Boat Ride, Baisden proclaimed that “Chubb turned the party out and was the highlight of the evening.”
