Skilligan's Island is a hot album, but "Polo Rican" alone is worth the price of the CD. The movie Boricua's Bond came out two years before Skilligan's Island dropped, and the use of Polo Rican in the credits had plenty of people wondering who the artist was. It's a hot Spanglish track that has stood the test of time, great production and a funny concept. Skilligans' Island is a great CD to own for Hip Hop heads young and old.
And who else (well besides maybe Kool Keith) would do a song about having sex with cartoon females. Thirstin does here, it's not one of my favorites, but the content is good for a chuckle. As I was saying before, some of the songs here are cheap sounding, but that add's to his appeal. He can rap over somebody elses track, not caring what he says, and it sounds good. Another amusing thing, the back of the CD shows the police snap shop of his mom and a "RIP" to her. Apparently she was in jail, and he (not here though) recorded a tribute to his mom that seems real touching. Even though he's talking about how she taught him how to blast his first gun and fight and run the streets. Again, only Thirstin would tread these waters.
He is at his best when he's freestyling, he has a seamlessly endless supply of punchlines and ill thoughts. And his off beat flow really adds to the impact of his words
"move back...think forward.../play catch...with flame throwers"
If you dig underground cats, the man who claims to be "27 shades lighter then Westley" is a sure bet.
