Partners in Kryme
Partners in Kryme were a hip-hop duo from New York City whose members consisted of James Alpern and Richard Usher.In 1990, the duo released their first single, "Turtle Power" which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, #23 on Billboard's Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, #37 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart, and #2 on Billboard's Rap Singles chart. The song also topped the UK music charts.
The song was featured on the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie soundtrack and was featured in the movie's ending credits.
After that, they seemed to have faded into obscurity and didn't appear to release an album, but 24 years later in 2015, the duo released a new song called "Rock the Halfshell" on their official YouTube channel.
