Vocalists
    (1988- )
    Dray (September 9, 1970- ), born Andre Weston in Teaneck, New Jersey
    Skoob (Novmber 27, 1970- ), born William Hines in Brooklyn, New York
    Recorded the albums ‘Dead Serious’ (1992), ‘Straight Up Sewaside’ (1993), ‘Hold It Down’ (1995), ‘Generation EFX’ (1998) and ‘How We Do’ (2003)
    Recorded the singles ‘They Want EFX’ (1992) and ‘Mic Checka’ (1992)
    Featured on the singles ‘Check Yo Self’ by Ice Cube (1993) and ‘Where Are They Now’ by Nas (2007)
    The ‘Das’ part of their name came from ‘Dray and Skoob,’ the ‘EFX’ from their constantly wanting producers to add reverb to their vocals.
    Their signature was adding ‘iggedy’ to words. (As in ‘Chiggedy check yo self before you wriggedy wreck yo self.’)
    ’The New Book of Rock Lists’ included them on their list of overrated rappers, commenting ‘Their stiggedy wiggedy gets on your niggedy nerves after a while.’
    In an attempt to avoid pigeonholing, they dropped the iggedys and slowed down their lyrical flow on their second album only to see sales plummet.
    They got together at Virginia State University and developed an idiosyncratic style as a result of being removed from the New York hip hop scene.
    They got their big break at a talent show judged by EPMD, who told them, ‘If you can get nine more songs like the one you just performed, we can get you a deal.’
    ’The Source’ wrote about their debut album, ‘They have brought back fun-filled hip hop.’
    BLACKstreet borrowed their shtick (okay, they changed the iggedys to iggitys) to land their biggest hit, ‘No Diggity.’
