Friday Funk: DWYCK

Yesterday I heard the classic banger from Gangstarr and Nice and Smooth, "DWYCK". A few nuggets about the track:


*At no time during the song is the word "Dwyck" ever said.
*My lovely wife guessed that DWYCK was an acronym for "Do Want Your Cracker Kakes?"
*Tie-top hats aren't one of the highlights of Hip Hop fashion.
*The song was only available as the B-side of 1992's "Take It Personal", until it appeared as a track on 1994's Hard To Earn album.
*When the song was put out, there was rumors the title was a thinly veiled dis to KRS-One, with the "D" in the title being a acknowledgment to KRS cohort D-Nice.
*The "Phillie at home..." line was sampled by the group Total Devastation (a blatant mid-90's rip off of Cypress Hill) who many beleived had the most samples ever on their debut album.
*Many believe it stands for "do what ya can, kid"
*After seeing the song debuted on Yo! in the memorable Summer of 1992, my homie Uncle Buck and myself found ourselves miles from the 'burbs on an East Colfax record shop copping the single. Think old school, grimey record store.
*Premier samples on the song "Hey Jude" by Clarence Wheeler and the Enforcers and "Synthetic Substitution" by Melvin Bliss.
*Video was shot on Atlantic City's boardwalk.
*Lemonade is still a popular drink, 15 years later

Nice science, B, particularly on the samples. Freshest hip-hop retrospective I've seen in the past month.

DWYCK-another way for cats to spell a word they liked yelling in cafeterias on a dare.
