Prince Paul is known
for going against Hip-Hop’s collective grain and a new CD/DVD highlights
his nonconformist mind state.
Paul and company have recently
released “The Dix: The Art Of Picking Up Women.” The set is a fictional
journey of a soul singing group that eventually destroys itself for a variety
Through a statement, group
member Mr. Len explained the background of the collective, which also consists
of Mr. Dead and Don Newkirk.
Humorously, Len said, “People
often ask, ‘Who are the Dix?’ These charismatic young men hail from
soulful Compton New York, home of the infamous ‘Booty Clap.’ The
Dix did more than just hit the spot. Just listen to their cataclysmic rhythm
and harmonies combined with their explosive dance moves makes the Dix one of
the best groups to grace this recording industry. I’ve had the pleasure
to see the Dix perform live at the world famous Apollo in “69”,
and let me tell you my friends, sheer utter excitement, I mean there wasn’t
a dry panty in the house!”
The bonus DVD chronicles
the group’s life and times via a faux documentary chock full of more hilarious
repertoire spans over a decade’s work with De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane,
Chubb Rock, Gravediggaz, Boogie Down Productions and MC Lyte.
