OMG! The Fat Boys’ Buffy Has A Grown Son w/A Famous Rapper &A Controversial Past
Okay ILOSM fam,’ we have a pretty surprising Old School fun fact we wanna share about the late human beat boxing member of the Fat Boys, rapper Darren “Buffy” Robinson. First off, make some noise if you’re Old School enough to remember when the Fat Boys were straight up killin’ the rap game in the 80’s! For a while, they dominated the music charts with songs like “Wipe Out,” “Fat Boys,” “All You Can Eat,” “The Twist,” and more.
Details On Buffy’s Passing
Along their journey of success, they even made their mark in films like Disorderlies and Krush Groove. Sadly, after their success started to fade in the 90’s, Buffy had a slew of health problems and ultimately died from them at the young age of 28 in 1995. Although his weight was his claim to fame as part of the Fat Boys, it was also his demise after he suffered from lymphedema and died of a heart attack, weighing 450 pounds at the time.
Before he’d passed away, he was fortunate enough to have produced a son, Quinton Robinson, with whom he got to spend five years of his first years of life with. The thing that makes his son special is that not only is he the son of a hip hop legend father, his Moms is also a hip hop legend in her own right.
Darren “Buffy” Robinson & Queen Pen
The mother of Buffy’s son is none other than 90’s rapper, Queen Pen. Remember her? She is the protegee’ of Guy/Blackstreet co-creator, Teddy Riley, and was featured on Blackstreet’s classic, “No Diggity.” By the way, nope, this is not a typo and yes, you are reading this correctly: Queen Pen and Buffy had a thing going on back in the day and as a result, they now have a grown son who is following in their musical footsteps! Who woulda thunk it, right?
Although their relationship was kinda kept on the low, there was still some controversy circulating through the music industry among those who were aware of the details surrounding Queen Pen’s and Buffy’s relationship. You see, Queen had her first baby (and Buffy’s only child), Quinton, when she was still a minor and he was an adult. Although several media outlets have reported that she was only 15 years old when she had their son Quinton in 1990, Quinton contacted I LOVE OLD SCHOOL MUSIC directly to inform us that is incorrect. Queen Pen was 17 years old when she had her son and the father, Buffy, was 20 at the time. Obviously their teenage/grown-up romance still caused folks to talk and created a whole ‘notha level of controversy- one that not only could have involved legal ramifications, but probably could have benefit from some psychoanalytical dissecting as well.
Queen Pen Revealed Struggles After Buffy’s Death
According to her website, Queen Pen has four children and has had her fair share of ups and downs trying to support them. She had her first child at 15 (according to her website) and her second child (Quinton) two years later. Her next two children were born some years afterwards. Her website also stated that prior to Teddy Riley helping her out musically, “she tried hard to overcome life’s obstacles until her efforts were defeated. Falling off track and getting caught up in the streets.” Thankfully, Queen Pen eventually pulled herself up though. Like my Momma would say, ‘Look at Gawd!’
Queen Pen’s & Buffy’s Son Is A Rapper
Today, Queen’s and Buffy’s son is doing his thing in music as well. He’s a rapper who goes by the name, Q Hannaz. He’s now 27 years old and often pays homage to his legendary parents on social media. Check out his pics and video below (contains graphic language)…

As far as what Queen Pen has been up to lately, we’re not sure. A few years ago, she did release a few novels and as far as we know, it’s been a while since she’s released music, but she’s still close to her mentor, Teddy Riley, and she’s very proud of her children. We’re pretty sure Darren “Buffy” Robinson would be proud of he and Queen Pen’ son too.
