Awful White Boy Rap: The Ypsilanti All-Starz (or 'The Phoneix Arises from the Ashes of the Icy Hot Stuntaz', as I like to call them)
(Note from Monkeyman: This has to be some of the worst white boy rap I have ever heard. Pure genius.)
"the ypsilanti all-starz
These ten musical gems came to me by way of Greg Warner in Phoenix. A few years back Greg's friend Nigel Morgan found an unmarked cassette-tape on the street in Ypsilanti, Michigan which contained a string of minute-long booty-rap anthems. Apparently some thugged-out white kids with a drum machine had put together a demo tape
I've given these dudes the name Ypsilanti All-Starz and titled each of the songs. My favorites are 'Yo' Shit Be Up in My Face,' 'Yo' Ass is So Fine' and 'Wiggle on the Flo'.'
What's remarkable to me is the earnestness with which these songs are performed. Some folks disagree with me but I don't think the Ypsilanti All-Starz are aware of their comic brilliance.
This tape circulated around south-east Michigan for two years, copied and recopied. Then Greg played it for someone who said, 'I know these guys!' This person said it was not a satire; these guys were out to make it big. They were fully confident they'd sell a million records. If it means anything to the Ypsilanti All-Starz, I'd buy one.
