A follow-up to Dan the Automator and Prince Paul’s genre-bending 1999 opus of Get A Life-inspired humor, So… How’s Your Girl, White People marks the return of the eclectic producers’ martini-sipping alter egos Chest Rockwell and Nathaniel Merriweather. Typified by creative guest pairings (“The World’s Gone Mad” features Barrington Levy, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos; Mars Volta are paired with AG and THE RZA, while Cat Power, Black Sheep’s Dres and, yes, John Oates all make appearances), White People is typical Automator and Paul: entirely without focus, but with creative, quickly-abandoned ideas bouncing all over.
