SCHOOLLY D - Gangster Boogie / Maniac 12" (1986)

Although Schoolly-D isn't the greatest rapper in the world, he'll always be one of my all-time favorites. This is his debut single, originally released in 1984 (ripped from a 1986 repress). 'Gangster Boogie' was definitely influenced by Run-DMC's "Sucker MC's", while the flip side "Maniac" sounds like a poor man's "Rockit". Not his most classic material, but I'd still rather listen to this than most of what passes for hip hop nowadays.
