Making Funky Tracks With The Dew Doo Man

If you've read Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists (by far the best piece of hip-hop literature...and can be had for under $14!!!!!!,) you know the story about Prince Paul's Dew Doo Man Records and Resident Alien. For those that haven't, a summary: Paul was granted a boutique imprint to be distributed by Def Jam. The planned debut release was Resident Alien's "It Takes A Nation of Suckas To Let Us In," a theme album describing the times of three recent West Indian immigrants in Long Island. Def Jam did not like it. Nor did they like anything else Paul brought to the table. Dew Doo Man's only release ever was the Resident Alien 12" "Mr. Boops" b/w "Shakey Ground" and "Ooh The Dew Doo Man." And despite being Paul's biggest fan, the album outside of those three tracks was not up to Paul's usual quality. Today, those three standout tracks are featured. But first, some random Paul thoughts:

1. Paul's discography is as diverse and creative as any artists'. Think: Stetasonic, De La Soul, Gravediggaz, Psychoanalysis, Prince Among Thieves, Politics, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker, and his outside production work for 3rd Bass, Kane, and even Paul Barman. A wild career.

2. Those who haven't heard Psychoanalysis need to do so. I hear so many raves about the quality and creativity of Prince Among Thieves and I feel that Psychoanalysis betters it in each category. Production is stellar and moving.

3. As a giveaway with the purchase of Politics Of The Business, some retailers gave away a DVD featuring a mock MTV Diary of Prince Paul. Get your hands on this! It tends to go for $2 on ebay and is hilarious. Mr. Dead, starring as both choreographer Creeqo Valencio and his cousin Maxwell Valencio, steals the show.

4. "The Other Line" from A Prince Among Thieves, featuring Breezly Bruin and his sister Heroine, is easily a Top 10 Male Vs. Female rap song.

5. I saw someone on a message board once say that when De La and Paul amicably split, De La should have been forced to change their name. It may be a bit extreme but De La is definitely a different group without Plug 4. Not bad, but definitely different.

6. While doing college radio in Chicago, I had been desperately trying to get the Resident Alien 12". It popped onto ebay every couple of months and tended to fetch $50 or so. JP Chill, a Chicago radio legend who ran the rap format I worked at, went to 2nd Hand Tunes, a store I visited nearly daily, and found "Boops" in the $1 bin. He showed it to me. Shocked, I asked him "How much do you want for this?" Kindly, he said in the way only JP could "Well I got it for a dollar so I'd say just give me a dollar for it." I offered more but, in the end, I had it for the bargain price of a buck.

7. A good Paul interview.

Resident Alien f/ Maceo (De La Soul) and Dres (Black Sheep): Shakey Ground
Resident Alien: Mr. Boops
Resident Alien: Ooh The Dew Doo Man

I have that 12".

Couldn't part with it though. I love Paul's work. He's like the patron saint of hip-hop nerds (and black nerds...and black hip-hop nerds) like myself.

word, Psychoanalysis is his best album by far. I'm really looking forward to this new one though. "You Made Me" is an all timer.

Got damn, thanks for posting these songs. I still have the video for Ooh The Dew Doo Man on a VHS tape somewhere, been looking for the mp3 on and off for years.

If you have Blackmale's "Body Talk" I'd be set.
