Grand Invincible “TIME TO GET GUCCI”

Many gurpos will think that this song is all about Schoolly D, but actually the rap was inspired by the tongue-in-cheek pimpiness of Miami’s Gucci Crew and cats like Gigolo Tony– a b-boy Kerouacian stream of conscious about bein’ stewy and introspective in the club when everybody else is there to dance and schmooze. The baseline with the horns that Eons swiped for the chorus reminds me of that “Crazy Boys” song from the musical Westside Story. Fuck Officer Krupke!
If anybody can tell me the title of the 2 Live Crew song that I ripped off for the flow of these last two songs, I’ll buy you a barely pop at the show (Topr’s excluded from the contest, ’cause he already called me out on it and I always buy him drinks anyway, the couch-surfing, hippie-hating bum that he is).

Grand Invincible “DENNIS RICHMOND”

Dennis Richmond is about delivering the rap news where the top story is almost always an indepth report on the demolition of a duck emcee. And yes, that is Baby Huey on the intro.

Grand Invincible “LISA”

Every Grand Invincible album has a song titled with a girl’s name (kinda like EPMD’s Jane saga, but about different chicks each time not just one). Ask The Dust’s is called Lisa… her brother was a greaser.

And that’s it! You’ve heard the whole album, now come to the show!
