Ganksta N.I.P. – The South Park Psycho (1992)Standouts: “Psycho” “Horror Movie Rap” “Smokin Amp”
This is one hell of an X-rated album. Anybody critical of the shock-rap stuff that Odd Future started off doing probably couldn’t stomach more than one verse from Ganksta N-I-P, the notoriously psychotic Rap-A-Lot member who (somehow) managed to be ten times as sick and twisted with his rhymes than any of the Geto Boys were.
N-I-P was outrageously imaginative when it came to violence, especially on “Psycho,” where he burns holes in tongues, kills babies in plastic bags and breastfeeds newborns with unleaded gas (well, he doesn’t, but you get the picture). He’s often mentioned for his disturbing lyrics, but he also deserves recognition as a gifted writer.
Later albums Psychic Thoughts, Psychotic Genius, and Interview With A Killa all prove his longevity. With pounding production from The Terrorists, Crazy C, Doug King and John Bido, The South Park Psycho never disappoints.
