Special Ed cut his first album, Youngest in Charge, when he was just 16. It clung to the Billboard charts for 38 weeks on the strength of singles like "I’m the Magnificent” and “I Got it Made.” Those early Ed records were insanely quotable; other lyricists have paid homage to his braggadocio and maybe you haven't even realized.

Whether as part of the Crooklyn Dodgers or on his own, Special Ed's flow is effortless. Catch it for free tomorrow. The performance is part of the Summer Stage series; check out our list of other free summer shows in NYC here.
