Bring It Back: Scott Caan & Alchemist Are: The Whooliganz

blame it on JES7 February 5, 2013

UPDATE: I was digging through crates this weekend and stumbled upon this single again and decided to bring it back, despite the prick remarks he (Scott Caan) made about Hawaii.

Years before Scott Caan would become the pompous character Scott Lavin on Entourage and playing Danno on Hawai’i 5-0, he was a rapper affiliated with Cypress Hill. Yes, you read that right. Scott went by Mad Skillz and together with fellow emcee Mudfoot (years later, he would be known to us as Alchemist), these two PNCs ran together as the rap duo known as The Whooliganz. Their run was in the early 90s, when Cypress and Soul Assassins was running thangs. Although they never officially put out a full length LP, they did drop two singles that were pretty big in the underground scene. Put Your Handz Up was produced by the legendary DJ Lethal and showcases that signature Cypress Hill funk. Hardbody. Whooliganz was produced by Baka Boyz and featured a verse by B-Real. Enjoy these (2)dope slices of nostalgic FUNK.

    I bought the Put Your Hands Up/Hit The Deck CD Maxi-Single when it came out back in the day, and I enjoyed it. That said, I don’t remember them getting much love…even on the underground. I remember just the opposite: folks weren’t completely comfortable with the idea of a couple of young suburban white kids rhyming over DJ Muggs’ dope beats.

    “they did drop two singles that were pretty big in the underground scene.”
