Kings of Swing

Kings of Swing were an hip-hop\R&B act from the late 80's\early 90's. Not much information is given on them, but the members consisted of two male rappers and a female DJ named Cocoa Chanel.
In 1988, they released the single "Stop Sockin' James\Microphone Junkie" on Bumrush! Records. It's unknown how or if the single was successful.
In 1990, Kings of Swing released their second single "Nod Your Head To This." It's unknown how successful the single was, but a music video was made for the single.
During that same year, Kings of Swing released their only album "Strategy" which didn't appear to make any impact on the charts.
Kings of Swing released two more singles: "U Know I Love You Baby" and "This is the Way We Rock the House\The Blunted" before fading into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.
