Hip Hop is a beautiful thing. I love how it reaches back in time and recreates song that touched people back in the day. This is the case with Mater P "Make'em Say Ugh" The original came from The Masterdon Committee back in 1983.
This group hailed from 147th street in Harlem, New York in the mid 70’s.
They made a single on Enjoy records called “Funkbox Party” in 1983. That single was a hit in New York all winter.
Other records on Enjoy in 1983-4 were “We’re gonna get you hot” and “Music Gram”.
It was later remade by Master P where the hook was “Make them say ughh”. I doubt Master P has given Masterdon any credit for the hit. Masterdon followed up the single in 1984 with “Funkbox Party II” (on Profile) which wasn’t as successful as the first single.
