Giant Panda Racist
- Words: Rob Dolo
- Label: Tres
Joining the ranks of real-and-true hip-hop groups-Starving Artists Crew, Crown City Rockers and The Procussions-are Maanumental, Newman, Chikaramanga, Super Brush 427 and Sir Kado, who form Giant Panda. With "It" features early-Tribe-style beats and smooth Main Source-type flows. "GP Y'all" is headnodic and clappable with funky horn samples, but they save their best for "Racist," which could be a circa-'90 conscious rap anthem. It explores everyone's inner racist with stereotypes about blacks, whites, Hispanics and Asians spit over a 114bpm break. Tight!
