30th Anniversary Edition comes on clear-and-yellow vinyl with a sheet of stickers depicting Schoolly D's own distinctive artwork
Get On Down Records, who recently
reissued a stack of classic Run DMC vinyl, have announced the reissue
on vinyl of Schoolly D's landmark 1985 12-inch PSK/Gucci Time â€“ a
record that many credit with having kickstarted the whole gangster
Born in Philadelphia in 1962, Schoolly
D was one of the most controversial rappers of the 80s, attracting
the kind of tabloid hysteria usually reserved for murderers, rapists
and Miley Cyrus, but that didn't stop his records selling by the
bucketload and being featured in numerous films â€“ notably the
classic Christopher Walken gangster movie King Of New York. He
released seven albums between 1985 and 1995, but has put out just two
since â€“ 2000's Funk 'N Pussy and 2010's International Supersport.
Now, 30 years on, Get On Down are
re-releasing his breakout single PSK/Gucci Time in a deluxe sleeve
featuring Schoolly D's own hand-drawn artwork, more of which can be
found on a sticker set that's tucked away inside along with a nice
chunky slab of clear-and-yellow vinyl.
