Each weekday in February, Go 95.3 looks back at an important figure in black history.
Today we feature Schoolly D. The man who created gangsta rap – yes, before N.W.A. and Ice-T, Schoolly D is one of the most important voices in hip-hop’s evolution. Early records like “P.S.K. What Does It Mean?” and “Gucci Time” became some of the most emulated in the genre’s history, with Schoolly’s fingerprints still being seen in any and all gangsta rap today. Continuing to tour today, Schoolly had a resurgence in the early 2000s performing the theme for adult swim‘s Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
