Right after the Power intro (track 1) we start things off hard
87 style with Philly's own Don Juan and his magnum opus, The
Prime Minister. The Joan Jett power riffs from I Love
Rock N Roll is the vehicle that rides through out this cut.
It's a perfect accompaniment to Don's Braggadocios delivery. Some
might view this track as simple novelty but when that stuttering
chorus comes in it's pure B-boy bliss. There's also plenty of
great sample lines where the music drops out just begging to be
lifted... for instance: "Like a Boa I will squeeze ya till
I snap your spine!" Damn!
I haven't come across a full length by Don nor have I seen any
other Concrete Jungle releases (dig that label's logo). I do know
there are two versions of this 12". There's a four track
12" (CJ100RE) and a two track 12" which is pictured
here (CJ1008). CJ1008 comes with the track featured here and a
slow jawn called The Ebony Goodness (see any of LL's
pre-90's love tunes for reference). The real score is the four
track EP which includes the two aforementioned cuts, an electro
anti-drug slice called The Pipe, and an incredible up
tempo killer Strapped. A hard one to snag either way.
Note: Track 01 is the intro.
