What's the Flavor?

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Young M.C.; Producer (group): Capitol

Young MC’s problem is not that he has lost his ear for toe-tapping pop hooks: His first single, “What’s the Flavor?,” is every bit as infectious as his monster 1989 hit, ”Bust a Move.” And he can certainly tongue-twist his way through a fast rhyme. What he can’t do is make any of it believable; Young strings the words together nimbly enough, but they never come to life. B-
