Back in '86 Schoolly D played in Brighton and a friend of mine went down to the venue and interviewed him... and got a bunch of albums autographed. Both Schoolly and DJ Code Money signed with full graffiti style signatures. We were supposed to give the albums away as competition prizes but I took one for myself which I still possess.
Great record. I hate what hip hop turned into - but this was a good one (along with his second; 'Saturday Night').

This is a flawless classic, I got this album in 87 when 14 and it blew my balls off. I had the shittest stereo back in the day and this still sounded amazing, the beats are as ruff as a piece of toast and the scratching sounds like it's being done with a chisel. Was this the first gangsta rap album ever? Course it was, no one in these days were rapping about snorting coke, sniffing glue, phuqin bitches & shooting people.

Grew up and went to school in Philly and was lucky enough to meet Schoolly D twice, one of those times getting him to autograph the cover of this LP. Still have it :) Talk about music bringing you back to a time and place... PSK is a masterpiece.

The cleanest sounding tape I ever owned. Even on the cheapest walkman the sound of this used to fill my head and brighten my days. Still unsurpassed as the hardest sounding drums in history. If Timbaland or P-Diddy ever heard this they would soil their pants with fear. Nobody made beats like Schooly D and Code Money before or since. Drum machines with masses of reverb and razor sharp scratches echoing into the distance. Just a beautiful sonic assault.

Released in the summer of 1986 on Schoolly D records. This much anticipated LP is one of the earliest Gangsta Rap releases, although Schoolly D really didn't set out to start any trends. He just had that style about him. I was kind of disappointed back then with this LP since it only had 6 tracks, and the best 2 were jams I already had on wax. It was still worth getting, just for the track "I Don't Like Rock And Roll". This song really pissed off the white people at the block parties that summer when I played it!...The UK LP which was pressed better, and has better sound quality than the Schoolly D Records US copy. -Review by Mentally Mad
