Derrick Stevens (aka Derrick 'Delite' Stevens) is a rapper best known for lending his voice as MC Skat Kat[1] after the character went solo. [2] The original album version of the song was recorded by The Wild Pair and did not contain a rap verse. Derrick Delite's rap was featured on the remix and video version of Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract."[2] [3] Entertainment Weekly incorrectly asserted that the intro rap was performed by Romany Malco. Romany Malco was not involved with the recording of Opposites Attract but was a key contributor for the MC Skat Kat solo project, MC Skat Kat and The Stray Mob. [4]

Stevens is now radio production manager at The Current, a station at Minnesota Public Radio.[3]
