J.J. Fad Revisits Working With Dr. Dre On History-Making “Supersonic” Album 30 Years Later

Despite the hardcore gangsta rap N.W.A pumped out throughout its tenure, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren, Ice Cube, Arabian Prince and DJ Yella had a comfortable spot for J.J. Fad. After all, Sassy C, Baby D and MC J.B. have been barely out of their adolescence once they turned the primary feminine group signed to Ruthless Records. In reality, Baby D wasn’t even in highschool but.

“Baby D was solely 15,” J.B. tells HipHopDX. “She actually was a child [laughs]. She was nonetheless in center faculty so yeah, it was sort of bizarre being that younger. But you simply wanna do one thing completely different. You have a ardour for music and rap and at the moment, nobody was doing it. We didn’t notice how essential it was going to be or how huge it was going to be. When it actually hit, we didn’t actually get the magnitude of it.”

Their impression continues to be felt 30 years later. Last summer time, J.J. Fad celebrated the anniversary of their seminal album, Supersonic. Produced by Dre, the 10-track undertaking was licensed gold by the RIAA three months after its June 1988 launch.

“We had a lot enjoyable [making the album],” she says. “We had the perfect time. As many instances as Dre would say, ‘Again, once more, once more,’ we didn’t even get mad. We simply begin laughing like, ‘Oh my god, are you actually gonna say once more once more?’ He’s such a perfectionist. But we by no means acquired mad as a result of we knew that he had our greatest curiosity at coronary heart, so we by no means acquired mad about that and we’d have a blast. We performed tag within the studio, so we actually had the perfect time ever.”

Supersonic additionally earned the group an historic Grammy nomination. They have been the primary feminine rap group to ever obtain the glory so, in fact, they needed to attend the ceremony. While teams like Public Enemy, Run-DMC and DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince have been boycotting the 1989 ceremony, Baby D, Sassy C and J.B. have been prepared to go just because they understood they won’t ever get one other probability — they usually have been proper.

“That was such a pivotal and thrilling second for us as a result of we have been so younger and to be nominated with the group of people who have been additionally our friends was wonderful,” she says. “Now, the draw back of that’s that was the very first 12 months they put the rap class into the Grammy’s and the Grammy individuals determined they weren’t gonna televise that portion of it. So us and Kool Moe D have been the one ones who determined to go. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Run-DMC and I feel Public Enemy have been all nominated they usually all determined to boycott.

“We have been like, ‘Should now we have boycotted as properly?’ But we have been so younger that it was like what if this chance by no means comes once more? And it didn’t. I’m so glad that we went, however on the identical time, I perceive now extra of why they boycotted and did what they did. They have been making a stand and we have been too younger to grasp that. But the blessing in all of that although is that none of these teams ever held a grudge or mentioned, ‘You guys are wack for going.’ Nobody ever made us really feel unhealthy for going, which I actually respect as a result of they might’ve completely dogged us.”

Looking again, J.B. doesn’t have many regrets about these early years, though she does want they wouldn’t have rushed their second album, 1990’s Not Just A Fad. Rather than have Dre on the helm, they enlisted the assistance of Arabian Prince and DJ Yella. In hindsight, she realizes their impatience took them off track.

“We ought to’ve waited for Dre, however we didn’t as a result of we have been younger to start with, and we didn’t perceive the entire enterprise in addition to we must always have,” she admits. “But we figured, ‘Okay, we are able to’t relaxation in between albums. Supersonic is beginning to die down and we have to come again fast.’ Dre was like, ‘If you guys need me to do it, you gotta wait like a 12 months and a half’ and we have been like, ‘What?!’

“He had so many acts at the moment that he was dedicated to and so we most likely ought to’ve waited and tried to simply do possibly a single with him simply to maintain our title on the market after which work on the album, however we have been like, ‘No, that’s okay. We’ll work with Yella.’ And I’m not dogging any of them in any respect. It simply wasn’t the identical sound that we have been used to, so it simply didn’t go over properly.”

J.J. Fad will all the time be part of Ruthless Records’ legacy. The entire roster handled them like household. If N.W.A would’ve emerged through the #MeToo period, a lot of their misogynistic lyrics can be scrutinized and shortly develop into a trending Twitter matter. But again then, they have been fearless and mentioned no matter they wished regardless of how reckless it appeared. J.B. remembers a dialog with Eazy concerning the best way they often spoke about girls and he informed her one thing she’ll always remember.

“Eazy-E informed me this a very long time in the past and it simply caught with me,” she says. “When we first began we have been like, ‘Don’t you are feeling unhealthy calling all girls bitches and hoes and don’t you are feeling some sort of manner about that?’ He checked out me and he mentioned, ‘Are you a bitch?’ I mentioned, ‘No’ He mentioned, ‘Are you a ho?’ I mentioned, ‘No.’ He goes, ‘Then we’re not speaking about you.’ And I used to be like, ‘Wow, I by no means thought of that.’ That by no means left my thoughts.”

J.B. explains that wasn’t actually who they have been — it was extra of a persona.

“The humorous factor is, being within the studio with all of them guys and listening to their lyrics and stuff, once they weren’t within the sales space, they didn’t discuss like that, which all people is gonna be actually stunned about,” she says. “We have been handled like their little sisters. They have been very protecting. They made certain we have been taken care of. Nobody might step to us. It was like they have been very, very gentlemanly and protecting.

“They have been principally making an attempt to shock the world. I’m not gonna say a few of it wasn’t their fact as a result of it was, however most of it was for the shock issue and letting individuals perceive the sort of world that they got here from. Only people who get upset about which might be the people who find themselves that.”

Fast-forward to 2019 and J.J. Fad nonetheless performs often, one thing J.B. acknowledges doesn’t occur for everybody.

“It doesn’t even appear to be that way back,” she admits. “It looks like yesterday. It simply makes us notice how outdated we’re getting [laughs]. But it’s only a blessing although to nonetheless be capable to stand up do excursions and nonetheless be capable to take pleasure in what we do.”

In Part II of the J.J. Fad interview, J.B. talks in regards to the group being omitted of 2016’s Straight Outta Compton biopic, classes she realized from Chuck D and the time Run-DMC’s Darryl “DMC” McDaniels needed to babysit Baby D.
