Schoolly D – Gangsta Rap Pioneer

“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.” –
