"NEW YORK'S STETSASONIC ARE PUSHING FORWARD THE FRONTIERS OF RAP, WAY BEYOND GIRLS, CARS AND GOLD, INTO POLITICS AND SOCIAL AWARENESS. DEFINITELY A STET IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION" - Paolo Hewitt, NME

Originally the group was known as the Stetson Brothers, After Stetson hats. The Stetson Brothers changed its name and style to Stetsasonic the Hip-Hop Band and clinched a deal with Tommy Boy Records when DBC came up with and played the funky bassline to its debut single “If You Can’t Say it All, Just Say STET” live for Tom Silverman, owner of Tommy Boy Records. After a few months of the single being in regular rotation on radio stations, they release their first album, On Fire (1986). The album received mixed reviews, though the follow-ups, In Full Gear, and Blood Sweat and No Tears, were critically acclaimed. There were three MCs; Daddy-O, MC Delite, & Frukwan, Wise the Human Mix Machine, Prince Paul, DBC, and Bobby Simmons STET drummer.

A 1988 New York Times article said that the group mirrored the rise of artistic, profound rap music: “While pop’s political commentary often seems secondary to catchy melodies and commercial acceptability, rap’s tough sound sharpens its commentary”. As a “Hip Hop band” dependent on instruments as well as turntables, the group was also known for live shows though sometimes the “rap-show format prevented Stetsasonic from employing the band instrumentation and studio layering that make their recordings so distinctive.”

STETSASONIC - "Talkin' All That Jazz "




STETSASONIC - "Just Say Stet"




STETSASONIC - "No B.S. Allowed"




STETSASONIC - "Sally"

One of the first rap groups to use a live band, Brooklyn's Stetsasonic formed in 1981 and were also among the first to promote a positive black consciousness that found its ultimate expression in the so-called "daisy age" sounds of De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers. The group consisted of DJs "Prince Paul" Huston and Leonard "Wise" Roman, keyboardist/drummer/DJ Marvin "DBC" Nemley, and rappers Glenn "Daddy O" Bolton, Martin "Delite" Wright, and Bobby "Frukwan" Simmons. Daddy O and Delite founded the group as the Stetson Brothers, after the hat company, and began performing in New York hip-hop clubs, picking up other members along the way. Their debut, On Fire, was released in 1986, but it was the follow-up, In Full Gear, that brought them critical acclaim and an R&B hit, "Sally." 



1991's Blood, Sweat & No Tears was considered by many to be their best and most diverse album, but Daddy O decided that they had run out of ideas and broke up the band. He went on to work with Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a producer and remixer. In 1993, he released a solo album You Can Be a Daddy, But Never Daddy-O. Meanwhile, Prince Paul had already established himself as a producer for his work with De La Soul and Fine Young Cannibals, and later worked with Frukwan in the Gravediggaz, co-founded the Handsome Boy Modeling School and released a string of solo albums.
