Yall So Stupid - Van Full Of Pakistans

  • Yall So Stupid

    Van Full Of Pakistans LP (1993)

    Rowdy Records

Ranked #191 in the Soul Strut 200

Rediscovering lost hip hop gems from the 90s was a big thing on Soul Strut and this album always popped up in the conversation.  Hailing from Atlanta, Yall So Stupid adopted a zany, whacky, eccentric west coast approach a la Pharcyde and Mad Kap.  Their one and only record on LA Reid's Rowdy Records is a sprawling 20+ track rap opus with old school fast raps, boom bap beats by Spearhead X, and goofy skits.  Favorites include "Monkey Off My Back," their ode to the sticky icky "The Plant,"  and one of their few singles "85 South."  Fun Fact:  The band eventually morphed into late 90s indie hip hop outfit Mass Influence.
