Schoolly D

schoolly(3807)

Jesse B. Weaver….Schoolly D, is one of the most iconic figures in rap music. Starting with his influential role in the creation of gangsta rap, Schoolly D has transcended the boundaries of genre and has created “rap” music that has been integrated in films, animated series, and sampled by some of the most prolific acts around including Lil’ Wayne, The Chemical Brothers, and The Roots.

Deemed a “pioneer…” by Jay-Z (Decoded, 09) and credited by Ice T as having the first gangsta rap record (PROPS magazine), Schoolly D’s career has given inspiration to countless musicians and fans alike. Songs like “Gucci Time”, “Saturday Night” and “P.S.K. What Does It Mean?” have become classics and illustrate the uncompromising narrative that has become synonymous with the hardcore gangsta rap of the eighties. His true-to-life lyrics give a snap shot of the streets of his hometown, Philadelphia, and the influences that drugs and gang life had on him as a young man.

Today, Schoolly D has an almost cult-like following, as his music continues to be referential. Even younger generations have been turned onto him thanks to his work with Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Schoolly D’s recently released “International Supersport” in June of 2010. The album is reminiscent of his early work and showcases his rhythmic raps, mastery of beats, and sometimes explicit lyrics and proves the lasting power of one of rap’s legendary b-boys.
