It’s Wednesday y’all! Since I remember seeing a few big Devin the Dude fans on here, I reckon this’ll be a revisit for them, but if not welcome to the world of Odd Squad!
Fadanuf Fa Erybody is probably most famous for 2 things, as Devin’s introduction to the rap world back in 1994 and as Scarface’s pick for the best album ever released on Rap-A-Lot Records. It’s also one of the most original and downright fun Southern rap albums of the era. It’s the Rap-A-Lot party record. It’s Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde with a Southern funk swing and the ignant lyrics turned up to 11. Devin is definitely the star of the show, with the smartest lyrics and most varied flows, but Rob Quest and Jugg Mugg hold their own and the three really have great chemistry. Beats are a blast of upbeat funk, jazz and soul.
A fun and ridiculous album that, probably due to its utter lack of commercial success never really spawned any imitators. As a result it kind of stands on its own and it’s one I always go back to.
