Before he was known as Mark Wahlberg, he was simply Marky Mark, punk kid brother of New Kids On The Block member Donnie Wahlberg. Before he was Academy Award nominated, he was making a cameo in the video for Step By Step. Before he was working with Martin Scorsese, he was chillin’ with the Funky Bunch.

While this young rappin’ whippersnapper might not be the same cat who has a great Hollywood career today, when I think Mark Wahlberg, this is the first thing that comes to my mind.

– “I wanna see sweat comin’ out ya pores.” I always thought that line said something else, but then again, I didn’t speak Bostonian back then.

– Dude really should’ve taken some boxing lessons before trying to hit that speed bag.

– Even though he was already 20 years old, he could’ve passed for a 16 year old teenager. I think that’s why he appealed to the young girls so well.

– Older brother Donnie produced this one.

– Though he said he was drug free and his body was healthy, I’m skeptical. I hope he was really only drinking protein shakes back then.

– The black and white vibe worked well, though when Marky Mark had his shirt off, it was black, white, and really white.
