Comedian Martin Lawrence’s Fox Networks television vehicle Martin made its debut 20 years ago today (August 27th). After small roles in Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing and the first film of the House Party franchise with rap veterans Kid ‘n’ Play, the Washington, DC Area native made a huge splash with the slapstick situation comedy with co-stars Tisha Campbell-Martin and Tichina Arnold. Always present in the show was the fact that Martin had his roots deeply entrenched in Hip-Hop culture.
We take a look back at seven hilarious Hip-Hop moments from the show featuring some of the biggest names in the rap game, from the Notorious B.I.G. to Method Man of Wu-Tang Clan. Damn, we almost forgot OutKast was on the show, too.
