The Dix The Art Of Picking Up Women
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Smacks
Prince Paul is a genius in two games: production and comedy. His ability to ape the sonic sensibilities of specific eras and genres is nearly unparalleled, and his twisted sense of humor imbues his projects with a sense of carefully controlled zaniness. His latest project is presented musically as a remixing and re-releasing of material from a legendary doo-wop group. Comedically, it‘s an excuse to make dick jokes-lots and lots of dick jokes. Both sides of the equation work: The music is a spot-on interpretation of doo-wop recast through hip-hop, and you wouldn‘t even know it was a joke if not for the countless phallus references.
