When Stetsasonic put together On Fire in 1986, the concept of the full-length hip-hop album was still new. But this seven-man outfit were out to change as many of the genre’s established rules as possible. Stetsasonic was the result of collaboration between three emcees who'd been rapping since the '70s (Daddy-O, MC Delite, and Frukwan) and a precocious 19-year-old producer from Long Island named Prince Paul. They fleshed out their sound by adding a keyboardist (Wise), a beatboxer (DBC), and a live drummer (Bobby Simmons). At a time when the minimalism of Run-DMC ruled New York, the songs from On Fire proffered a more multifaceted form of hip-hop collectivism. While “Rock de La Stet” and “Bust That Groove” use Run-DMC’s hard-rock raps as a template, the instrumental augmentation and youthful dynamism invigorated a style that was already becoming clichéd. The imagination and mischievousness that Prince Paul would soon bring to De La Soul was already evident in these songs. Even minimalistic gems like “My Rhyme,” “Faye," and the timeless “On Fire” exude a looseness and playfulness that subverted hip-hop’s singleminded obsession with aggression.
