BLOWLFY "WEIRD WOBBLER" BOBBLEHEAD! (Figure #1 of 500!)
BLOWFLY is the alter ego of legendary singer songwriter Clarence Reid. The inventor of the Miami soul sound, Reid has written massive hits for KC and The Sunshine Band, Gwen McRae (1975’s R&B #1 hit ‘Rocking Chair’), Betty Wright and Sam and Dave along with his own successful recordings, most notably the hit ‘Nobody But You Babe’. Yet it is Reid’s mysterious and shocking alter-ego, BLOWFLY, which continues to shock and entertain audiences with his insane brand of funky X-Rated parody albums and filthy originals. With a career spanning nearly 50 years and over 20 albums, Blowfly’s 1965 recording, ‘Rap Dirty’ is often referenced as the first rap song and Blowfly was the first rapper to have a record banned! His albums are legendary and have been acknowledged as highly influential within the rap community.
In tribute to his enduring legacy and perverted creativity, Cult Collectibles is proud to add the official BLOWFLY to its highly popular line of collectible figures. “When I started CULT COLLECTIBLES 2 years ago, a BLOWFLY figure was one of the first figures I ever discussed making and I am happy that now is the time to make it happen,” states owner Mark Jason Murray. “I’ve long been a fan of Reid and his BLOWFLY persona and I am proud to be paying tribute to him with this figure.”
BLOWFLY is decked out in his gold costume complete with mask and cape. Standing on the “BF” crest, BLOWFLY holds his microphone with one hand and gives you the ‘Blowfly finger’ with the other… all while delivering a wicked grin underneath his mask.
