Tennessee rap veteran Lil Noid released his cult classic Paranoid Funk twenty years ago. Since then, it has been difficult for listeners to locate the influential 1995 Blackout-produced project. Noid has now hooked up with Delroy Edwards’ L.A. Club Resource label to present a first ever vinyl reissue version of Paranoid Funk.
Created before Noid even reached the age of 20, Paranoid Funk represents a young artist’s analysis of dealing with the traps of the Memphis streets. The Juicy J protége’s lyrics play out as an internal battle of overcoming teen angst from an inner-city perspective.
