"More in depth:
"The Crown" released way back in 1986 became a legendary top dance hit in many international dance charts and was a club smash hit.. at the time. To this day it is still a very sought after rap classic from the 80's. It was recorded under one of his alias artist names "DJ Rapmaster Shadowman". The song was produced and composed by Stevie Wonder and Gary Byrd and It soon became an international club smash hit and legendary 80's club track. Says Randy:
"yes I do smile listening to this old school style rap, but, I was young and we all need to start somewhere.. and it was a great experience"..
1987: Randy & Pebbles "Happy Birthday Berlin" was co written produced and performed by Randy for the 750th birthday of the city of Berlin and also became a German national Top Ten Club Hit in 1987. The song was performed in front of Millions World wide at the Ronald Reagan Memorial speech, a huge event at the German Reichstag at the Berlin wall, 2 years before it fell.
The Rap Text reflected thoughts and feelings at that time that "the wall must come down" and was inspired by the 3 years of living in that fantastic "Island City" and his experience in 1986 of the Bombing of the Disco "Labelle", one of 2 black music clubs where he was the resident DJ at the time of the bombing

Being creative is a wonderful gift
It's not "always" about gaining fame & the money,
that's nice too of course, if you are "lucky" to make lots but,
it's also about expressing "yourself and your emotions and feelings"
and the love of creating art and sharing it with others to enjoy.
Thank you "creator" for this wonderful gift
