Schoolly D: Schoolly D (Schoolly D Records)

Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 23 August 1986

SCHOOLLY D is from Philadelphia and appears to be some kind of hoodlum, with an unhealthy interest in the status trinkets of high life, drugs and guns (presumably how you acquire the first two). With his partner DJ Code Money, he has just made the most extreme hardcore hip-hop record I have ever encountered.

Total word count of piece: 441
