Thus stated Special Ed, on his 1989 smash hit, “I Got It Made.” And he backed up that brag throughout histrademark anthem, which featured laid-back brags that MCs a half-decade his senior couldn’t mess with.The Brooklyn MC was only 16 when it was released, making him one of the youngest rappers – especiallyat the time, before the 90s brought us Kris Kross and Lil Bow Wow – to ever have a hip-hop hit. The songitself, which floated over a perfectly hooked up slice of Ripple’s “I Don’t Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky,” was produced by Hitman Howie Tee, who also made waves in the late ‘80s with his cousin, Chubb Rock. When Ed and Howie combined, it was a match made in heaven, and the song exploded in New Yorkbefore taking over worldwide. Eventually becoming sample fodder on dozens of later songs – from Fat Joeto Kendrick Lamar – the track still invokes heavy head-nods today from crowds of all ages.Also included on this special 7-inch is the “Businesslike Version” of the song (also produced by Howie),which also appeared on the original 12-inch. Featuring a minimal, synth-driven backdrop and a quickerpace, it offers an excellent new way to experience Ed’s forward-thinking lyricism.This unique, deluxe “big hole” 7-inch comes housed in a custom Profile 45 jacket.

Special Ed’s debut LP presented in a gatefold jacket with liner notes by Brian Coleman that include interviews with Ed and Howie Tee. In 1989, Hip-Hop was truly bona fide. It had shed the “just a gimmick” tag years before, as it showed not only artistic growth, but serious sales numbers. In short, it was here to stay. After the explosion of Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy in New York and the rise of the West Coast seen in multiplatinum successes by N.W.A. and Ice-T, the music started to truly expand, letting new voices and approaches join the party and make their own waves. One of those was a young man from Brooklyn who went by the name Special Ed. Only 16 when his debut hit shelves (and then quickly flew off them), his age was indeed just a number. Beyond any gimmicks, Ed had serious skills. Fortunately, Ed found his way into the recording studio with fellow Brooklynite, Hitman Howie Tee. Howie had seen some success as part of the group CD III earlier in the 80s, and also did uncredited production on the worldwide smash “Roxanne, Roxanne” by UTFO in 1984. With skills and experience under his belt, he was waiting for his true “big moment.” Ed was the MC that Howie had been waiting for, and together they made history. Once it hit, Howie’s instincts were proved correct – Youngest In Charge was a smash, rocked on radio, in clubs and on boomboxes around the world. It shot up the Billboard 100 and Rap / R&B album charts with ease, and hit Gold status by the late ‘90s, proving the album’s staying power. Even considering the novelty of Ed’s youth, the Youngest In Charge album stands very firmly on its own as a hip-hop classic, the ultimate in late ‘80s New York brag swagger, with hit singles “I Got It Made” and “Think About It,” both which showed off Ed’s battle stances and Howie Tee’s masterful, never-endingly catchy productions. Add to it deeper album cuts that still resonate like “Taxing,” “Fly M.C.” and “I’m The Magnificent” (a later single, in 1990), and it brings you back to a time when hip-hop was all about skills and chemistry. Special Ed and Howie Tee certainly had both, with dopeness to spare.
