They started with MC Hammer as backup dance and then when Hammer started to pop he brought into the rap game. This group was hot. They had a hot single called ”Juicy Gotcha Krazy” It was released in 1989 and the song was a hit. Hammer was the stuff at that time. The hook was dope and is was song by a R&B diva named “B Angie B“. She would be the lead vocals for MC Hammer. The group consisted of Lil P, Sweet L.D. and Terrible T. The trio made up Oaktown 357 and the video changed the game,for a lot of women in the rap game saying “Hell I can do this too” they came through in Terrible T’s black Corvette in the video. ”B Angie B” wa s in the back They was the only sista’s doing it big, them Salt and Pepa and MC Lyte.
Then they started to break it down in the video. This song came out when I was in High School for me. I wish this kind of music would come back. It was fun harmless and got you to move on the dance floor and spit a little game to the ladies just for once, with out tearing them down. I added this song to plenty of mix tapes that I had mad. I sure miss that hip hop that made you bob your head or just get up and dance. I am from the days when it was cool for a guy to get on the dance floor and show off his moves. There were not that many female rap groups out at the time that had an major deal. The ladies were in shape also. I went to see them in Columbus GA at the show was hot. You know I am oldschool cause

Kid N Play was performing also and MC Hammer was the headline. Those men and women earned their money that night. I can honestly say this is a good rap song then to compared to what comes out now. I loved everything about them. The finger waves the Hammer pants, the patent leather shoes. That style was fire. The ladies were telling other ladies you have the power so get yours and “if your man gets out of line just thrash out the juice tell it’s get paid time”. I feel like Drake “No Lie, No Lie, No Lieeeyyyyeeeyiii”. This was kinda telling young girl to know your worth in so many words or less. I really feel that Oaktown 357 is one the the Top Female MC’s of female groups. We all know sex sells but these ladies still kept it classy. This is rare in the current hip hop scene. I definitely have to add this song to my playlist off going out when I am on my grind, or just plain focus. Just like Beyonce said “Who run the world, Girls!”. Oaktown 357 just cut to the point and told you “What Runs the World” Like you didn’t know. ”Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Yeah Yeah awwhh Yeah” If you are a true Oaktown 357 fan you know what this means. Holla!
