Who is The Wepa Man?
Sometime in the 80's the relentless beat of house music could be heard rocking the walls of half New York City. The boom, boom, boom, boomboombooom of tracks like Pal Joey's "Earth People" represented along side of the classic "Try Yazz" by 2 Puerto Ricans a Black Man and a Dominican. The latter song featured that unforgettable digital instrumentation and perfect tempo that blew the roof off of house parties in Soundview. Magically, this same track was the perfect complement while riding around Throggs Neck in your white T-Top IROC. The mass appeal of this particular track owes a lot to the vocals of the one and only "Wepa Man."
