“CHUCK D: I just feel like cursing is kind of played. The Geto Boys took it as far as you could take it. When I went down South, the album that I could play that met the medium of everybody in the car—my sister-in-law, and my other sister-in-law, she’s 14, my daughter, my niece, they’re like three and four, my wife—so you know, I was surrounded by Apaches, I can’t be playing Boyz N the Hood soundtrack now. I got my tapes here—can’t play Robin Harris. You know who we ended up playing six times? L.L. Mama Said Knock You Out. It was hard enough for me, nice enough for the wife. It’s like the hardest pop record ever made. He made a fucking hard album without cursing.”
“One of the most requested local songs at radio, record stores and clubs was written by a 17-year-old rapper who made a guest appearance on DJ Jimi’s CD It’s Jimi. Teruis Gray (aka The Juvenile) was approached by DJ Jimi to record the song Gray had been performing at clubs called “Bounce (For the Juvenile).” Radio stations and clubs started playing the LP cut, and it caught on. “We never thought it was gonna go that far,” says Gray, who describes himself as a “street gangsta raggamuffin rapper.” He says he gets most of his musical ideas from the projects, and that he tries to keep an original New Orleans sound.”
I love how the “Down” half of this video opens with dozens of spastic wipes firing in all directions every two seconds but then after about the 1:25 mark - right when Juelz says “ass fatter than ever” - they stop using them completely. Maybe the wipe guy was out of the office on the second day of editing.
