Crushin' is the fourth studio album by hip hop group The Fat Boys, released in 1987. This would be their breakout album, charting in the top 10 on both Billboard Pop and R&B album charts. A cover version of The Surfaris' hit "Wipe Out" with The Beach Boys singing back-up vocals made it to #12 on the Billboard chart, and #10 on the corresponding R&B listing. After being unavailable for over a decade, the album was rereleased on the iTunes Store in early 2013.
