Producer: Alonzo Brown
Album: N/A
Label: Profile Records


Before he became the head honcho at Uptown Records, Andre Harrell was a rapper along with Alonzo Brown in a group called Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. They performed in business suits long before hip-hop artists wanted to be taken seriously as businessmen. Consequently, they weren't very successful. But they did have one notable jam, "Genius Rap," which made generous use of of the Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love" sample.
