When it comes to paving the way, nobody’s Adidas pounded the ground harder than the three homeboys from Hollis, Queens. Not only were they the first Hip-Hop artists to have a gold album. They were the first to bring a platinum plaque back to any projects, and the first to go platinum plus. The trio was also the first Hip-Hop group to get a Grammy nomination and appear on American Bandstand. Oh, and, they were the first rap act to have a video on MTV. Now pay homage.
