Biography

Candyman is an American rapper and record producer who was one of the many crossover rap stars of the early 1990s, although his success was extremely short-lived. He is best known for his one-hit wonder, “Knockin Boots”.

The Los Angeles rapper was featured backing Tone-Loc before he earned his own solo stint. His 1990 debut, Ain’t No Shame in My Game, scored a Top Ten pop hit with “Knockin’ Boots.” The following year, he released another less successful LP for Epic, Playtime Is Over. He released I Thought U Knew for I. R.S. in 1993, which also failed to click. 2000 saw the release of Candyman’s Knockin’ Boots 2001: A Sex Odyssey, an album featuring his 1990 hit single remixed and new cuts as well.”[1]

Candyman’s latest effort to revive his career, Knockin Boots 2001… A Sex Odyssey, was a critical and commercial failure. The lead track, a remake of “Knockin Boots”, “chronicles some of the pleasures found in a night out with the Candyman, including “front-row tickets to a bomb-ass play,” a relaxing bath, dinner reservations, strawberries in the tub, whipped cream, champagne, and the music of R&B supergroup LSG.”[2]

Candyman is also the name of a Korean Indie band. Similar in style to Casker, Jeppet &
Loveholic. Pleasant, easy listening music great for just chilling out to.
