Remember the group Cameo????

In the 70s a 14 member group known as New York City players were formed.

They later change their name to become the group all the 80s babies are familiar with, Cameo. They wanted to branch out an didn’t want to be confused with the group known as The Ohio City Players.

Growing up seeing Cameo perform, hearing their deep funk sound, and watching their videos would be kind of like watching a video or listening to a song by Rihanna in this day and age. The lyrics and videos were were edgy but the beat was undeniable. They rapped, they sung, they played instruments….Oh….did I mention the red cock piece worn by the lead singer Larry Blackmon!?? Yeah…

Now that I’m grown and I go back and listen, it really makes me look at our parents, aunties, uncles, and even grandparents a little different. Don’t be fooled if you’re in this generation.. they were just as wild and inappropriate back then as we are today.

Anyway, Cameo changed the way the world thinks and listens to music. Their music has been sampled by everyone from Tupac to Mariah Carey even 8Ball & MJG!
