I liked this album by Whodini. They made some fun party songs, yet also had songs with positive messages. Many of these songs I still remember, especially Friends, Freaks Come out At Night, Haunted House of Rock, One Love (smart merging of rap and R&B sounds on that song, even industrial sounding for 1986), and many others. Although they ran out of hits after 1987, these songs are still addictive and still hold up. One omission--Growing Up, something that should be applied to some of today's young people and their out of control lifestyles. Whodini should be commended for their contributions to the rap genre.

Quite simply, this is one of the best records, hip-hop or otherwise, ever.
This album has songs that to this very day will pick me up or inspire me when I'm bummed out.
For example, a few verses from the outstanding track called "Escape." After stressed out verses describing some of the problems we all face in daily life, the song doesn't end like you might expect at first. There comes a powerful reply right away -- which is empowering and simple --
"So you want to quit your job, but you don't have the funds?
Take a sick day off, and find a new one,
...and the song continues:
"You don't owe noone a thing, but you owe yourself!"
Self-empowering and truthful, WHODINNI were honest, introspective. Like on the track "FRIENDS," where the group is striving to define what makes for true friendship--
"...and if you ask me, you know I couldn't be much help,
because a friend is somebody you judge for yourself."
But don't get it twisted, because most of these songs are wicked party jams that can still rock the house. These tracks aren't nerdy, boring or overly intellectual in any way!
Get this record -- it serves as the perfect 100%-effective antidote to the substandard negativity of today's fantasy-ridden rap!

As I am sitting here I am listening to DJ Icey's remix of "Five Minutes of Funk" Memories. I graduated from High School in '85 and Whodini was the shiznit, as was Run DMC. Friends. Freaks Come Out At Night.
Friends, how many of us have them
Friends, ones we can depend on
Friends, before we go any further, lets be
Friends, the word we use every day
Most the time we use it in the wrong way
Now you can look the word up
Again and again
But the dictionary doesn't know the meaning of friends
. . .
The song still spills of my tongue almost 20 years later.
Timeless

5 minutes of Funk, Magic's Wand, Freaks come out at night. Those of you who like old school rap will love this compilation of Whodini. They laid it down for all the brooklyn rappers who came after them.

I seen these cats at an old school concert recently....They really did their thing. So much so, that I had to go online and cop their greatest hits album. Good trip down memory lane. Favorites: "Freaks come out at Night", "Five minutes of Funk", "Friends", and of course......."One Love".
I'm ready to get my suede front, Green and white Stan Smiths, my name buckle, and some pen stripe Lee's. Anybody seen my money green sheepskin? My lumberjack is in the cleaners.

Whodini was a fixture in rap during the early to mid-1980's. This collection contains some "hits" that I was not familiar with, and certainly not as good as the more well known gems ("Freaks Come Out At Night", "L-O-V-E", "Friends"). "Be Yourself", a late 1980's entry featuring the outrageous Millie Jackson, is worth the price of admission.
