Prince Whipper Whip - Hip-Hop MC, The Fantastic Five
Prince Whipper Whip is a pioneering Hip-Hop MC from the Bronx, New York. Born James Whipper, he began his career with Grandmaster Caz, became a member of The Mighty Gestapo in 1978, went on to form the Salt and Pepper MCs with Dot-A-Rock, was briefly a member of the Cold Crush Brothers, and then joined Grand Wizard Theodore's Fantastic Five.

The group (also known as the Fantastic Freaks or the Fantastic Romantic 5), released a 12", "Can I Get A Soul Clap," in 1980 and appeared in the influential Hip-Hop movie, Wild Style, in 1981. The group broke up in 1983, having never recorded an official album.moreless
