Smoke Some Kill
Am I Black Enough for You?

Smoke Some Kill is the third album by rapper Schoolly D. The album was released in 1988 for Jive Records and was produced by Schoolly D.


Though the album was not as successful as Saturday Night! – The Album, it did manage to make it to #180 on the Billboard 200 and #50 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop album charts.[1]

'Signifying Rapper'[edit]

The song 'Signifying Rapper' was based upon the 'signifying monkey' character of African-American folklore. A version of this story was performed by Rudy Ray Moore. Schoolly D's adaptation of the story is recited over the rhythm guitar figure from Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir'.[2] The song was featured in the film Bad Lieutenant, and inspired the title of (and is discussed in) the book Signifying Rappers: Rap and Race in the Urban Present.

Keygen heroglyph 4.0. 'Signifying Rapper' was the target of several lawsuits following its use in the 1992 film Bad Lieutenant,[2] in multiple scenes.

In 1994, Live Home Video and distributor Aries Film Releasing were ordered to destroy any unsold copies of Bad Lieutenant as part of a copyright infringement ruling.[3][Request quotation on talk to verify] Director Abel Ferrara was angered by the incident, which he felt 'ruined the movie':

'Signifying Rapper' was out for five years, and there wasn't a problem. Then the film had already been out for two years and they start bitching about it. [..] It cost Schoolly like $50,000. It was a nightmare. And meanwhile, 'Signifying Rapper' is 50 million times better than 'Kashmir' ever thought of being. [..] Why sue? You should be happy that somebody is paying homage to your work.

— Abel Ferrara, The A.V. Club interview[2]

Robert Christgau(B-)[5]
Los Angeles Daily News(B)[6]
Rolling Stone[7]

The album received generally mixed reviews from most music critics. The Los Angeles Daily News gave the album a B.[6]Rolling Stone reviewer Cary Carling panned the album, writing 'With its images of gun-toting bluster, mushrooming genitals and rampant drug use – backed by thuddingly dull beats – Smoke Some Kill should be played for every prospective rapper so he'll know what not to do.'[7]Allmusic reviewer Ron Wynn called the album 'more chaotic than creative'.[4] In his consumer guide for The Village Voice, critic Robert Christgau gave the album a B- rating,[5] calling Schoolly D 'the white audience's paranoid-to-masochistic fantasy of a B-boy' and commending him for 'realizing the fantasy so scarily, and for commanding his own tough-guy sound'.[5]

Schoolly D teamed up with DJ Code Money in the mid-1980s. His lyrics reflected urban realism, violence, and sexual bravado.[citation needed] He was interviewed in the 1986 documentary Big Fun in the Big Town.[2] He later embraced an Afrocentric style, bringing Afrocentric culture to hip hop along with KRS-One.[3]

Schoolly D contributed songs and music to many Abel Ferrara films, including 'P.S.K.' and 'Saturday Night' (from Saturday Night! – The Album) as well as 'King of New York' to Ferrara's film of the same name and the title track from Am I Black Enough For You? that was played during the climactic shoot-out in that film, the title track from How a Black Man Feels, and 'Signifying Rapper' (from Smoke Some Kill), which was used in Ferrara's film Bad Lieutenant.[4] Because Led Zeppelin successfully sued due to an uncleared interpolation of its song 'Kashmir' in 'Signifying Rapper', the song was omitted from the soundtrack of the film and from subsequent releases of the film.[4]

Composer Joe Delia tapped Schoolly to co-write and record 'The Player' for Ferrara's film The Blackout, which Delia scored. Schoolly also wrote the score to Ferrara's 'R Xmas. In 2006, Schoolly D co-wrote the indie film soundtrack of the historical science fiction thriller Order of the Quest with Chuck Treece. The project series is produced by Benjamin Barnett, and Jay D Clark of Media Bureau. His last album, Funk 'N Pussy, on Jeff 'Met' Thies' Chord Recordings features guest appearances by Public Enemy's Chuck D, Chuck Chillout, Lady B and a drum and bass remix of the classic Schoolly D track 'Mr. Big Dick' (remixed by UK trip hop crew The Sneaker Pimps).

Schoolly also performed the music and occasional narration for the cultanimated seriesAqua Teen Hunger Force on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block. He was a guest on an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. He also created the song 'Sharkian Nights' for the 12 oz. Mouse. The character Jesse B. Weaver from The Rudy and Gogo World Famous Cartoon Show was also named after him.

In November 2006 Schoolly D and Cartoon Network were sued over the Aqua Teen Hunger Force theme music. A drummer by the name of Terence Yerves claimed he had also written the theme music alongside Schoolly D in 1999 while working at the Meat Locker Studio. Yerves was aware the song would be used for a television series but did not approve of it being used for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, however, did not file the copyright to the Library of Congress until May 2006, after the series' fourth season had already started airing. In the lawsuit Yerves demanded he receive $150,000 for every time the series was aired after the lawsuit was filed, he also demanded that all existing copies of the series' DVDs be impounded and for Aqua Teen Hunger Force to cease broadcast.[5]


Rapper Ice-T, who is often given credit for the creation of gangsta rap, discussed Schoolly D's influence on him in his autobiography:[6]

The first record that came out along those lines was Schoolly D's 'P.S.K.' Then the syncopation of that rap was used by me when I made '6 in the Mornin'.' The vocal delivery was the same: '..P.S.K. is makin' that green,' '..six in the morning, police at my door.' When I heard that record I was like, 'Oh shit!' and call it a bite or what you will but I dug that record. My record didn't sound like 'P.S.K.,' but I liked the way he was flowing with it. 'P.S.K.' was talking about Park Side Killers but it was very vague. That was the only difference, when Schoolly did it, it was '..one by one, I'm knockin' em out.' All he did was represent a gang on his record. I took that and wrote a record about guns, beating people down, and all that with '6 in the Mornin'.'[7]
