NEW SCHOOLLY VS. OLD SCHOOLLY
That's Schoolly D, sounding surprisingly slick on the second video from his forthcoming album International Supersport. (Yes, that's the real title.) I don't know how happy I am about a song with a title like "Family Affair"—and no, it's not a cover, or even built on a sample, of the Sly Stone track—coming from one of the most nihilist, rage-filled rappers of the '80s.
Here's the Schoolly D I remember:
Oh, well. It's a decent track, anyway. And I'll probably check out the album; I mean, I'm a pretty diehard fan of his old stuff. I love everything from the first EP all the way through Welcome to America. I just hope it's better than Funk 'n Pussy.
