Once upon a time in the early '90s, Arsenio Hall was an important supporter of rap. He had a hit talk show that featured live performances from some of hip-hop's finest, including De la Soul, Leaders of the New School, and, of course, MC Hammer. All of which was inspiration for Chunky A, Hall's portly rapping alter ego. Chunky A released one album, Large and in Charge, in 1991. Met with the painful silence that every comedian fears, Chunky A quickly faded, followed shortly thereafter by the career of Arsenio Hall. ~ Wade Kergan, Rovi
