"When Schoolly D returned to Philadelphia in the early '80s after living in Atlanta, he was a couple years away from truly kick-starting his music career. "I had to work my ranks up," the man born Jesse B. Weaver Jr. recalls.
Weaver released his first two 12-inch singles in 1984 and 1985 before finding his stride with a third, "P.S.K. What Does It Mean?", a track now commonly regarded as the first gangsta rap song ever recorded. Ice-T took Schoolly's lead and flipped the style -- a bobbing, sing-song cadence -- into "6 'N The Mornin'," a direct influence on Eazy-E and N.W.A's breakout in 1988.
"P.S.K.", a hyperlocal anthem that resounded nationally, was Schoolly's big break. A few months later he'd release his debut full-length, Schoolly D, one of a handful of early hip-hop LP's in an era of 12-inch singles.
