"The Cookie Crew gained recognition in 1987 when they appeared on the first-ever hip-house track 'Rok Da House' with the Beatmasters. They were a borderline commercial rap group, that gained respect from the hardcore hip hop heads for some of their harder tracks. Releasing two albums and many singles they are one of the most successful UK rap acts, who also gained recognition in the States. Some tracks on their second album 'Fade To Black' were produced by some of the top names in hip hop at the time, like Black Sheep, DJ Premier, and Daddy-O."
