Dead Prez - They Schools (CHEATCODE Remix)
They Schools (CHEATCODE Remix) Dead Prez
CHEATCODE effortlessly blends Nas and Pink Floyd in this fun mash-up.
It's probably not the most difficult thing in the world to take "They Schools" from Dead Prez, our personal favorite Brooklyn-based Hip-Hop duo, and throw it over Pink Floyd's inescapable "Another Brick In the Wall (Pt.II)" - that's the "We Don't Need No Education" one, if you're wondering which "Brick In the Wall" to which we're referring - but the genius is in the inception of the idea equally as much as the execution.
Which is where Cheatcode comes in, delivering us one of our favorite mash-ups we've heard in a minute. An effortless blend? For sure, but we'll hear Dead Prez spit over any track.
I went to school with some redneck crackers
Right around the time 3rd Bass dropped the cactus album
But I was readin' Malcolm
I changed my name in '89 cleaning parts of my brain
Like a baby nine
I took a history class serious
Front row, every day of the week, 3rd period
Fuckin with the teachers had, callin em racist
I tried to show them crackers some light, they couldn't face it
