Rob, his DJ partner Tiny Tinman, and their crew made a name for themselves by throwing jams in places such as Clark Park.
Check out this post by Troy L. Smith on the Nostalgia King site about when Rob met and DJ’d alongside Grandmaster Flash and also the video at the bottom where Rob tells the story in his own words.

D.J. Rockin Rob vs. Grand Master Flash?

‘The Original Mean machine’ was originally recorded in 1981 at J&J Studios but never released. For years the track sat on a shelf on a multi-track master tape until it was unearthed and finally produced for a physical vinyl release by Jimi Hazel, Rockin Rob & Victor Piagneri aka The Undercover Brother.

Apologies but there’s only audio for the instrumental at the moment.
