Ego Trip was a hip hop magazine started in New York City in 1994. It lasted four years and 13 issues and distinguished itself based on its irreverence and defiant attitude, eventually adopting the tagline, “the arrogant voice of musical truth”…

The music video for "Crosseyed and Painless" was directed by Toni Basil . It did not feature the members of Talking Heads in the video, by their own request.

Blow toured extensively behind "The Breaks," taking B-boy culture to mainstream USA while blazing a trail for rappers like Run of Run-DMC , who got his start billing himself "The Son of Kurtis Blow."
