Rap Treats #43: ATCQ "Georgie Porgie" (1991)

This is the original version of Tribe's "Show Business" from their Low End Theory album. The song is called "Georgie Porgie", features Brand Nubian, and is about how they don't like gay dudes. For real, they are pretty much gay bashing all over this one (pause, no homo). Story goes this version was rejected by their record label Jive Records due to the homophobic lyrics, so they made a new song out of the same beat. Apparently Grand Puba didn't want to re-do the song with a new topic which is why he's not on "Show Business".
