BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Yo! Little Brother” is a 1984 single by italian freestyle artist from NYC Nolan Thomas (born Marko Kalfa). “Yo! Little Brother,” peaked at #57 on the Billboard Hot 100. While Nolan Thomas (Marko Kalfa) did appear in the music video and sang all of the other tracks on the Yo! Little Brother album, he did not actually perform the vocals on this particular track Elan Lanier a black vocalist who also hailed from the Tri-State Area sang them. He was discovered by dance music producers Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa of Shannon (“Let the Music Play”) fame when he was still in high school. The original 12-inch single was initially released by Emergency Records. The now famous music video was conceived by the Manager/Director/Producer team of Stu Sleppin & Bob Teeman. Sleppin & Teeman created the rock star look-a-likes that became known as The Vid Kids. Nolan Thomas & The Vid Kids toured the US in the mid 80’s. In the UK during the mid 80’s “Yo, Little Brother” received some cult status after it was aired on the Max Headroom Show (channel 4 Television).
