King Tim III (Personality Jock)



Referred to as the official first hip hop song to be ever recorded back in 1979.

Released by the Fatback Band from the disco  album Xii in March 25.


The song was originally the B-Side of the 7-inch single, with the A-Side "You're My Candy Sweet" a mid-tempo disco song. However the song stalled at #67 after 4-weeks on the R&B chart and was replaced the following week with "King Tim III (Personality Jock)" on the chart. It peaked at #26 on the R&B chart and stayed on for 11 weeks.
