Biography

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 those longing for the clean party anthems of their time. This song has been thrust back into the limelight after Hip Hop Soul Queen, Mary J. Blige, used the track for the remix of her 2008 hit “ Just Fine ” . 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". This lyrical wizard is credited with launching the careers of the Trackmasterz: Poke and Red Hot Lover. Chubb Rock, known for his 6'4' 300+ pound frame will assuredly seduce the ladies with his new svelte 100 pound lighter physique and alluring lyrics. Though his weight may be lighter his lyrics and beats still hit hard. While over the years Chubb Rock has matured so has his music. Staying true to his fan base that has loved him for years his new grown up music and lyrics are definitely targeted towards the Grown and Sexy. His latest single, "Ole School Flava" released on his independent label "Hyztory Records" made it's debut on May 2, 2007. It is being welcomed with open arms as a refreshing alternative to the violence and derogatory lyrics that have plagued hip-hop music over the years. In 2007, Chubb Rock is not making a come back, it's a continuation of clean party and sexy songs for the mature in mind but young at heart.

Recently interviewed by 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 while being provoked during a radio telephone prank that could have led some men to respond with obscenities and crude remarks. Through out the telephone prank Chubb was pushed hard, but the "Rock" remained poised. He was also recently applauded, on air, by Michael Baisden, author, playwright, and 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 Boatride, the "Bad Boy of Radio" proclaimed that "Chubb turned the party out and was the highlight of the evening….he bows down to the Legendary Chubb Rock!" Invincible Media broadcasted that "Chubb Rock, practically got the audience dancing on tables when he performed 'Treat em Right' and 'Ole Skool Flava'" at the 1st Annual Urban Music Awards recently held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

"OLD SCHOOL FLAVA", one of the singles, from his highly anticipated CD, flows with nostalgia and a smooth dance beat as he pays tribute to some of the great pioneers of hip-hop music. Chubb Rock's lyrical dexterity continues to shine through on other songs from the CD like "SEXY", "TOP 8", and "ZODIAC SIGN". He stays true to his Jamaican roots with the pulsating reggae/hip-hop dance groove "JUICY", a track that is sure to move you even before you reach the dance floor. Listen to "OLD SCHOOL LOVE" as he tells a tale of a May-December romance with a slight twist. "GET IT ON" is not only tempting you to get your groove on with it's driving rhythm the lyrics are a special treat for the ladies. He says "I LIKE 'EM OVER 30" in this new playful tune. The beat is working your feet while the lyrics keep a smile on your face. One of the most memorable songs on the CD is "CELEBRATION" which is a loving tribute to his wife Nikki, who recently succumb to cancer, Gerald Levert, and a few others that left us much too soon. This is a steppers track that guarantees to make you grab a partner and get your step on. The new stimulating party anthem "ENJOY" gives you a super dose of the Chubb Rock from the mid '90s blended with a super hot track that will rock the joint in 2007. This long awaited CD will be played from start to finish leaving you with a sigh of relief…….finally, it's exactly what we've been waiting for. The GROWN AND SEXY THEORY is more than just a theory…….listen and hear for yourself.

Lyrics

Treat 'Em Right

Written By: Chubb Rock

Nineteen ninety
Chubb Rock jumps up on the scene
With a lean
And a pocket full of green
The green doesn't symbolize I made it on the top
But RoboCop last year was a shock
The tone of the Popeye cut shook your butt
Kids are screaming; the media says, "What...
"Kind of music is this for you to dance to?"
The man with the plan and the man demands you
Leave the smack and the crack for the wack
Or the vile and the nine; keep a smile like that
Leave the knife and the gun in the store
And ignore temptation
Sent by the nation
Racial gain causes pain; need a new rep
In your hearts and minds never forget Yusef
Hawkins
And you're walking
You don't just run
Black on black; remember that; it's important
Anyway the shunless one brings forth the fun
No hatred; the summer's almost done
No time for sleep
Jump in your Jeep
And pump up the funky beat a whole week
Beeper goes off yo smash it and trash it
You're too young to be plumped in a casket
Just get your boys and bring the noise
And just swing it
And party people, sing it

Chorus:
Treat me right
I'll treat you good

Kids in the crib want dibs on the big man
"Can he come out? Can he come out and slam a jam?
"I'm his number one fan, yes I am"
All these kids realize that I'm the man
Six foot three and maybe a quarter of an inch bigger
Than last year, but still a unique figure
Rob Swinger, Doc No, Dinky, and Hot Dog know
That I'm a man who was born to have a mic on
Next to me at all time; ready to kick a rhyme
That will keep me out of financial bind
That's why when it comes to fans I'm never mean
Kids all see me between Gates and Green
Always say hello
Cause I'm a modest fellow
Never try and play a super star that's mellow
Cause if these kids don't go buy our records
We'll be has-beens and plus naked
So we owe them
So pull out your pen
Sign an autograph; you might make a new friend
So just get your boys and bring the noise and just swing it
And party people in the house, sing it

Chorus

Party people in the house, listen up
I'm the man with the plan and the man rips it up
Peace to Howie Tee, good lookin', gee
Swinger, Hot Dog, Doc No, Bud, Ev Lover, Dinky
Fish and chips with the hippy hippy hips
Before the tune ends, give me some lips (ah!)
Sanity Crystal, my niece
And Lady Kazam, my homegirl, peace
And leave the guns and have fun; out!
And oh yeah, sing it

Chorus

Break

Well coming back
To nineteen ninety
Chubb Rock jumps up on the scene with a lean and a hardcore dream
The dream wasn't crafted to be pornographic
Decency started from the crib, plus kids
Don't need to hear all of that on the rap
The strength of my vibe placed Chubbs on the map
Cause authority, seniority goes far
My staff gives autographs plus gives nuff laughs
Read my mic, heed my sight, and definitely lead you right
Just treat me right
Peace

Treat me right
Treat me right
Treat me right

Ya Bad Chubbs

Written By: Chubb Rock

This is an introduction
To music that just be pumpin'
While hits just be dippin'
The intention is for humpin' the floor
Shinin' the wood with our jeans
If it's denim don't worry
It's hip hop don't hem 'em
Money earnin' concernin'
I'll be teachin' and learnin'
Gettin' hot from my rhymes and my looks
Not from bourbon
No solution no remedy
No cure like a deodorant
Yo you have to be sure
That if you talk up or walk up into myface
That wouldn't become a big public disgrace
'Cause I'll ban you, burn you up, and tan you
Treat you like the elephant
And man you will be hocked and locked in a jar with a lid
Hangin' on a wall in Michael Jackson's crib
'Cause I'm bad, in fact I'm a thriller
I drink milk, that's why I'm a top biller
Like a funeral home, I'll make a killing
I'm not Giz even though I'm still chillin'
Guys say I'm scary, girls say I'm cuddly
Rough like bark but dark and lovely
This ain't no game and I'm no toy
And like Anita Baker, I'll bring you joy
With my word when I open my mouth
Ask Oliver North to go and break south
A homo is a no-no but you know I'll smack a faggot
Boy, you got to see me, I'm rich like Jimmy Swaggart
I'm a loon and ya know, comin' soon
A rhyme kicked to this Popeye tune
This is hip hop with a little be-bop
And I won't flop 'cause I can't stop
I will mop up the slop and then go to the top
'Cause I'm not Robocop, I'm Chubb Rock
I'm Chubb Rock risin' and I'll break your leg
And I'm more than a forty ounce, I'm more like a keg
And I'm the big dipper, rippin' like Jack the Ripper
And if you want the proof, the proof is in my liquor
So you knew it and you blew it, let's get to it
Gonna run you over with a rhyme that's like a big Buick
And since you think you're slender, I'll slap you with a fender
And bind you up, wind you up, and grind you up in a blender
And then I'll serve you with coffee and cake
Oh damn, I should've had a V-8, oh well
I'll put you on a plate so it looks a little neater
You're a tramp, so I'll sprinkle salt and pepper
And paprika on your face, like mace
So you can taste immediately
Just like the base that went up your nose previously
So it seems you're too zooed to battle
Word's up chump, acne bump, skidaddle
You're a nine, I'm a ten
Victory is mine agai, this Bud's for me
So here, take a Heineken
With your self-esteem, you will never redeem
Like Martin Luther King, you have a dream
That maybe you will beat me, maybe defeat me
But you're too illiterate, so I won't consider it
Weak is the word and the rhyme is identical
This is not the late show
And I'm not Arsenio Hall
But quite tall with the gall
And I have magic and I can play ball
And guys won't boo this, girls will jsut screw this
It's ludicrous but we can dothis
'Cause you're new to this, Brutus
I'm so smooth that I'm the smoothest
I'm not handsome but I am the cutest you ever had
That's why I'm so glad that I'm so good I'm bad
