Partners in Kryme (or Partnerz in Kryme) was an American hip hop duo from New York City. Its members were James Alpern and Richard Usher, using the stage names of DJ Keymaster Snow and MC Golden Voice, respectively. They are most famously known for their debut single, "Turtle Power", which was written for and featured in the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 1990, and became an international hit, reaching Number 13 in the US and Number 1 for four weeks in the UK. A second single, "Undercover", was released on Capitol Records, but the group never released a full-length album. Another song, "Love 2 Love U" was recorded in 1991 for the soundtrack of Cool as Ice movie.
