Funkytown Pros: More To Gain From The Core, The Brain

Funkytown Pros “White Green”

Some of my favorite rap songs struggle to stay in a single thematic lane, often taking unexpected detours towards budding unrealized concepts. These tangential side streets remind us that self-expression is not always improved by lucidity or linearity. On the song “White Green” rapper Boiwundah of West Coast early 90s rap group Funkytown Pros ((I wrote a review for their only album, the highly recommended Reachin’ A Level Of Assassination a while back.)) provides us a glimpse into a delightfully imperfect creative process by failing to stick to the topic. His unusual delivery —he flows on beat/off beat in unpredictable patterns, frequently changing speed and inflection— complements his scatterbrained but clever lyrics. He makes a noble attempt to develop a series of racially-charged political statements based on different metaphorical uses of the colors “white” and “green” but his thoughts wander where they will. From his artistic mission statement to pondering the pitfalls of the spotlight to a debate over the merits of lyrical complexity, there’s a lot going on. The thread that runs through it all is the concept of integrity, and one gets the sense that Boiwundah’s treatment is no less insightful for having gradually bubbled to the surface of an inspired mind at play. — Thun

Bonus: Two Funkytown Pros demos that were recorded off of Kevin Beacham’s Time Travel radio show by Roy Johnson.

  3. Funkytown Pros are one of my all time favorites. It’s a shame that second album never came out. I’m still working to get it or at least the portion of it (about 1/2 an album) released). Those bonus cuts are two of the cuts…

  4. J-Zone says:

    These cats were waaaaay ahead of their time. That 12″ only instrumental “The Rhythm Fluctuator” was crazy too. Devastatin was a maniac with the beats. Whole album had a grainy / grimy sound and he’d layer like 6 loops that were technically out of key, but it would sound incredible.

  5. MANHOODLUM says:

    I remember first hearing Funkytown Pros on Def Jef’s 2nd album, and Boiwundah blew me away. His patterns were sick: “Hill-bound drowned body, Funkytown founder…”. I didn’t even know they had an album out until I saw the cd (when they used to come in the long boxes), and quickly snatched it up. The production was scattered, but unique, and sounded like someone still learning their SP. At least Dev sounded like he was trying to come original with sound. Boinwundah is still dope to me. The cd is still here.

  88. Thanks alot : ) for your post. I want to write my opinion that the price of car insurance varies from one scheme to another, mainly because there are so many different facets which play a role in the overall cost. As an example, the brand name of the car will have a significant bearing on the price. A reliable older family vehicle will have a lower priced premium than the usual flashy fancy car.

  89. I believe that avoiding highly processed foods will be the first step in order to lose weight. They will taste beneficial, but prepared foods possess very little vitamins and minerals, making you consume more in order to have enough strength to get over the day. Should you be constantly feeding on these foods, transferring to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will help you to have more energy while taking in less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

  90. trojan armor says:

    Thanks for the post. My spouse and i have constantly observed that most people are needing to lose weight since they wish to look slim and also attractive. However, they do not generally realize that there are other benefits for you to losing weight in addition. Doctors insist that over weight people experience a variety of health conditions that can be directly attributed to their particular excess weight. The good news is that people who sadly are overweight and suffering from a variety of diseases are able to reduce the severity of their illnesses simply by losing weight. You possibly can see a gradual but notable improvement in health whenever even a slight amount of fat loss is obtained.

  91. One important issue is that when you’re searching for a education loan you may find that you will want a co-signer. There are many cases where this is true because you should find that you do not possess a past credit standing so the mortgage lender will require that you’ve someone cosign the loan for you. Great post.

  92. Based on my observation, after a the foreclosure home is available at a bidding, it is common for the borrower in order to still have the remaining unpaid debt on the financial loan. There are many creditors who attempt to have all costs and liens paid back by the future buyer. Nevertheless, depending on certain programs, rules, and state legislation there may be quite a few loans that are not easily sorted out through the switch of loans. Therefore, the obligation still rests on the customer that has had his or her property in foreclosure. Thank you for sharing your notions on this blog.

  93. It is my belief that mesothelioma is actually the most lethal cancer. It’s got unusual properties. The more I look at it the more I am confident it does not work like a real solid cells cancer. If perhaps mesothelioma is usually a rogue viral infection, hence there is the chance for developing a vaccine along with offering vaccination for asbestos uncovered people who are really at high risk regarding developing long run asbestos relevant malignancies. Thanks for expressing your ideas for this important health issue.

  94. I believe that avoiding highly processed foods will be the first step in order to lose weight. They might taste good, but refined foods have got very little nutritional value, making you try to eat more to have enough vitality to get over the day. If you are constantly taking in these foods, transferring to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more vigor while consuming less. Interesting blog post.

  95. Things i have observed in terms of personal computer memory is that there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must match the specific features of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is fairly current and there are no computer OS issues, modernizing the storage space literally normally requires under a couple of hours. It’s one of many easiest pc upgrade methods one can consider. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  98. Thanks for the different tips shared on this web site. I have observed that many insurance firms offer prospects generous reductions if they choose to insure multiple cars together.

So it is a good idea to look for a good deal.

  100. Thanks for the tips you have contributed here. On top of that, I believe there are some factors that will keep your car insurance policy premium lower.

Aside from that insurance is also in line with the value of your car or truck, so the more expensive it is, then the higher the particular premium you only pay.

  101. One thing I would like to say is the fact that car insurance canceling is a horrible experience and if you’re doing the correct things being a driver you won’t get one. A number of people do have the notice that they have been officially dropped by their insurance company they then have to struggle to get supplemental insurance following a cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates tend to be hard to get after the cancellation. Knowing the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancelling can help owners prevent completely losing in one of the most significant privileges readily available.

Such as, the brand name of the car or truck will have a large bearing on the cost. A reliable outdated family automobile will have a more affordable premium than the usual flashy expensive car.

  113. One thing I want to say is that often car insurance termination is a dreaded experience and if you’re doing the correct things like a driver you simply won’t get one. Many people do have the notice that they have been officially dropped by their particular insurance company and many have to struggle to get added insurance after the cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates are generally hard to get from a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons concerning the auto insurance termination can help drivers prevent completely losing in one of the most crucial privileges obtainable. Thanks for the concepts shared through your blog.

  114. Today, taking into consideration the fast lifestyle that everyone leads, credit cards have a big demand throughout the market. Persons from every area are using the credit card and people who aren’t using the credit cards have prepared to apply for one in particular. Thanks for discussing your ideas on credit cards.

  115. One thing is the fact one of the most frequent incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back and also rebate provision. Generally, you get 1-5 back on various purchases. Depending on the cards, you may get 1 back on most expenditures, and 5 again on expenditures made from convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores plus ‘member merchants’.
