2 Skinnee J's

2 Skinnee J's is the name of a musical band, sometimes characterized as nerdcore hip hop or rap metal (although one of their songs is, in fact, entitled Friends Don't Let Friends Listen to Rap Metal). Individuals from in and around the area of Columbia University formed the band. It was founded in February 1991 by a pair of college friends going by stage names Special J and Rabbi J-Slim; the name of the group is derived from the letters in their names and their similar girths. In May 1995 J-Slim left the band (he now works for the Children's Television Workshop), as did the guitarist, Joey Viturbo. Not long after, most of the horn section disbanded to attend graduate school. There followed a chaotic summer in which J-Slim's spot was filled by J. Jonah Jamison, but Jamison was replaced in September 1995 with the addition of former accordianist J Guevara. As of 2003, when the group went on hiatus, 2 Skinnee J's consisted of: * Special J (MC) * J Guevara (MC) * Mikey B (drums) * Eddie Eyeball (bass guitar) * Lance Rockworthy (guitar) * Stevie Spice (trombone, keyboards) * AJ Stumpy Johnson (manager, beer sipper) Read more on Last.fm.
