Rap Groups We Know Nothing About #2

The debate about the best rap names ever rages on. Last we heard, it was down to a straight shoot-out between Froggy Frog and MC Peaches or something. Useless. No, the best names ever are Street Rapper Godzilla, from Aggravated Assault, and the man we come to pay tribute to today: Aggressively Intense Fierce MC. Yep, it sounds made up. No, it isn’t. Dude is, however, so obscure that neither he nor the label this was released on – Impact records straight out of Staten Island – get an entry on Discogs. We rang the number – 718-448-5321 – that’s printed on the label, but as this came out in 1987, unsurprisingly there was no reply. Both sides are produced by Phil Harris – again, we draw a blank – who drops the cowbells on the A-side, ‘A New King Has Sprung’, which sounds vaguely reminiscent of Mixmaster Gee’s ‘The Manipulator’. The flip isn’t as much of a heater, due to some cheesy guitars, but AIF MC still comes off hard. Again, we throw this wide open to you. Help us, people…

    Is this something you bought in ’87 or found later whilst diggin’? You’d have to buy it with a name like that. Never heard of it/him. I guess someone must have heard of him.

    i never heard of him either, but i agree, you’d have to be a fool not to buy it with a name like that. i’ve got some records that aren’t on discogs too.

    The artist Aggressively Intense Fierce MC, his name is Darnell Knights. It was pretty much produced in my house with not much experience. Things didn’t work out with management so I moved on. Eager to learn the music industry from the inside, I went on to work at Select Records where I promoted artists Chubb Rock, UTFO, and quite a few other artists. I’ve also worked at Pow Wow Records, as an A&R .
