Arrested Development. Produced by Speech People Everyday Lyrics. A remix of it reached the top 10 in six countries including a peak in the UK and in the US. It was nominated for a Grammy in 1992 and won Best Rap Video at the 1993 MTV Music Video Awards. Todd Speech Thomas was inspired to write the song based on his experiences of having different views on black culture than those in his neighborhood. hey understood they were black, but for them black was jheri-curls, it was pimping.
Another excellent album, after Paris’ equally impressive debut The Devil Made Me Do It. It’s a mystery why Paris never blew up like Ice Cube and Public Enemy did – he does the same and he does it just as well. Intelligent, militant, powerful – Paris dropped some classic material here. Top tracks: The Days Of Old Make Way For A Panther Assata’s Song Sleeping With The Enemy. 17. Boogie Down Productions - Sex And Violence. This album can be seen as one of the cornerstones of the unfortunate trap trend we are experiencing now, but in 1992 it still was somewhat original – and UGK really had a dope sound. The lyrics are mostly about criminal enterprises (before that subject matter got really tired), the difference between UGK and most acts that would follow, clone them is that UGK makes it sound GOOD.
