Some of you weren’t even born when the youngest in charge, Special Ed dropped his blazing debut album of the same name when he was a mere lad of 16. Propelled by the album’s scorchers, “I Got It Made” and “I’m The Magnificent,” Ed’s album, Youngest in Charge, went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in 1989.
The Jamaican-born rhyme slayer followed up those hits with “Come On, Let’s Move It” off his sophomore album Legal, which dropped in 1990 when Ed turned 18.
But where is Special Ed now?
Special Ed, real name Edward K. Archer, was busted last week in Greensboro, NC on an outstanding warrant for missing a few (dozen or so) child support payments. We’re sure it was all a big misunderstanding, and that the 41-year-old former rapper will cut that check to his baby mama and get this all cleared up.
In the meantime, take a trip down memory lane by peeping the videos below.
