The Mandolindley Road Show (Paul C. McKasty)

I know what some of you are thinking right about now. You’re saying to yourself what in the hell is this crap and why is it on my beloved T.R.O.Y. blog?

Sit back and let me drop some science for ya’ll. While this might not be classified as hip-hop and for many it won’t exactly be your brand of flavor either, this right here is HISTORY.

Back in November of ’08 we blessed you with Paul C. Lives, an extensive journey into the musical genius of the late great Paul C. McKasty. For those not in the know, Paul C. was a member of the group Mikey D & the L.A. Posse. He also played mentor to Large Professor by schooling him on on how to use the SP-12 drum machine/sampler. When Paul passed, Large Pro took over production duties on much of the music Paul was working on before his death. Large Pro later created his owns publishing company, which is fittingly named Paul Sea Productions.

Large Professor wasn’t the only producer Paul influenced, as both DJ Premier and Pete Rock cite Paul C as an influence as well. In addition he also worked with Eric B. & Rakim, Grandmaster Caz, Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud and Stezo to name a few and was responsible for Organized Konfusion‘s (then Simply Too Positive) first demo tape that helped land them a deal with Hollywood Basic.

Out of all of his accomplishments, Paul is probably best known for his work on Ultramagnetic MC’s classic debut album Critical Beatdown. His involvement in this album, as well as his lasting legacy in hip hop, is extensively documented in Dave Tompkins’ article “Travelling At The Speed Of Thought.”

Paul C. began his musical career as a bassist for the pop rock band The Mandolindley Road Show. After the group disbanded, Paul started producing for many hip-hop acts, and because he preferred to work without contracts, he often did not receive credit for his production.

Tragically in ’89 Paul C was found shot to death in Rosedale, Queens, at the age of 24 . His murder was featured on America’s Most Wanted, which lead to the arrest of Derrick “Little Shine” Blair, who was later released due to lack of evidence. The case has yet to be solved.

Today we remember Paul as the fun-loving guy, rap legend and talented musician as we showcase his first group, The Mandolindley Road Show.

    R.I.P. Paul C.

    One interesting thing about the video footage is that Paul really seemed like down to earth, super-cool cat, just as he is described by most people who knew him.

    Damned shame he had to go but at least his legacy runs deep.
