Schoolly D

Jesse Bonds Weaver Jr. better known by the stage name Schoolly D, is an American rapper from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Schoolly D teamed up with DJ Code Money in the mid-1980s, his lyrics reflected urban realism and sexual bravado, making Schoolly D the first gangsta rapper. He is interviewed in the 1986 cult documentary Big Fun in the Big Town, he embraced an Afrocentric style, bringing Afrocentric culture to hip hop along with KRS-One. Schoolly D contributed songs and music to many Abel Ferrara films, including "P. S. K." and "Saturday Night" as well as "King of New York" to Ferrara's film of the same name and the title track from Am I Black Enough For You?, played during the climactic shoot-out in that film, the title track from How a Black Man Feels, "Signifying Rapper", used in Ferrara's film Bad Lieutenant. Because Led Zeppelin sued due to an uncleared interpolation of its song "Kashmir" in "Signifying Rapper", the song was omitted from the soundtrack of the film and from subsequent releases of the film.

Composer Joe Delia tapped Schoolly to co-write and record "The Player" for Ferrara's film The Blackout, which Delia scored. Schoolly wrote the score to Ferrara's'R Xmas. In 2006, Schoolly D co-wrote the indie film soundtrack of the historical science fiction thriller Order of the Quest with Chuck Treece; the project series is produced by Benjamin Barnett, Jay D Clark of Media Bureau. His last album, Funk'N Pussy, on Jeff "Met" Thies' Chord Recordings features guest appearances by Public Enemy's Chuck D, Chuck Chillout, Lady B and a drum and bass remix of the classic Schoolly D track "Mr. Big Dick". Schoolly performed the music and occasional narration for the cult animated series Aqua Teen Hunger Force on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block, he was a guest on an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. He created the song "Sharkian Nights" for the 12 oz. Mouse; the character Jesse B. Weaver from The Rudy and Gogo World Famous Cartoon Show was named after him. In November 2006 Schoolly D and Cartoon Network were sued over the Aqua Teen Hunger Force theme music.

A drummer by the name of Terence Yerves claimed he had written the theme music alongside Schoolly D in 1999 while working at the Meat Locker Studio. Yerves was aware the song would be used for a television series but did not approve of it being used for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, did not file the copyright to the Library of Congress until May 2006, after the series' fourth season had started airing. In the lawsuit Yerves demanded he receive $150,000 for every time the series was aired after the lawsuit was filed, he demanded that all existing copies of the series' DVDs be impounded and for Aqua Teen Hunger Force to cease broadcast. Rapper Ice-T, given credit for the creation of gangsta rap, says that Schoolly D was the first gangsta rapper; the first record that came out along those lines was Schoolly D's "P. S. K." The syncopation of that rap was used by me when I made "6 in the Mornin'." The vocal delivery was the same: "... P. S. K. is makin' that green," "...six in the morning, police at my door."

When I heard that record I was like, "Oh shit!" and call it a bite or what you will but I dug that record. My record didn't sound like "P. S. K." But I liked the way. "P. S. K." was talking about Park Side Killers but it was vague. That was the only difference, when Schoolly did it, it was "...one by one, I'm knockin' em out." All he did was represent a gang on his record. I took that and wrote a record about guns, beating people down, all that with "6 in the Mornin'." In the DVD extra on the King of New York, Schoolly D claims to have independently invented the sport of snowboarding by sledding down Philadelphia hills on pieces of linoleum. Funk metal band Primus mentions Schoolly D in their song "Harold of the Rocks" on the album Frizzle Fry; the Beastie Boys sampled Schoolly D's song "Gucci Time" on their 1986 hit "Time to Get Ill." 1985: Schoolly D 1987: Saturday Night! – The Album 1988: Smoke Some Kill 1989: Am I Black Enough for You? 1991: How a Black Man Feels 1994: Welcome to America 1995: Reservoir Dog 2000: Funk'N Pussy 2010: International Supersport 2019: The Real Hardcore 1987: The Adventures of Schoolly D 1995: The Jive Collection, Vol. 3 1996: A Gangster's Story: 1984–1996 2000: Best on Wax 2003: The Best of Schoolly D Schoolly D on IMDb Schoolly D at AllMusic Schoolly D discography at Discogs Schoolly D's ArtistDirect entry Global Darkness interviews Article about his graphic career as an album cover designer

Cave Canem Foundation

Cave Canem Foundation is an American 501 organization founded in 1996 by poets Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady to remedy the under-representation and isolation of African-American poets in Master of Fine Arts programs and writing workshops across the United States. It is based in New York. Cave Canem programs include an annual summer retreat, regional workshops, first- and second-book poetry prizes, anthology publication and national readings and panels; the organization has published two anthologies, Gathering Ground: A Reader Celebrating Cave Canem’s First Decade, edited by Derricotte and Eady, The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South, edited by Nikky Finney. In September 2016, National Book Foundation awarded Cave Canem the Literarian Award for service to the American literary community. Founded in 1996 by poets Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady, Cave Canem Foundation began as a week-long writing retreat for selected African-American poets at Mount St. Alphonsus Conference Center in Esopus, New York.

Since Cave Canem "has grown from an initial gathering of 26 poets to become an influential movement with a renowned faculty and a high-achieving national fellowship" of over 300. The Foundation's name, Cave Canem, is Latin for "Beware of the Dog" and refers to a sign that Derricotte spotted while visiting the House of the Tragic Poet in the volcanic ash covered city of Pompeii. Writing for The New York Times in 2015, Stephen Burt described Cave Canem as "a major incubator for the current renaissance in black poetry, which includes the poets Tracy K. Smith, who won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in poetry. Held annually at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, Cave Canem’s tuition-free retreat is a week of faculty-led writing workshops and poetry readings for African-American poets. Accepted applicants may participate for a maximum of three summers within a five-year period. Past faculty have included Presidential Inaugural poet Elizabeth Alexander. Cave Canem Foundation sponsors two annual book prizes.

One is the Cave Canem Poetry Prize, awarded for an exceptional first book by an African-American poet and published by the University of Pittsburgh Press. Other winners have included Donika Kelly for her book, Bestiary; the second is the Cave Canem Northwestern University Press Poetry Prize, a second-book award established in 2009 that "celebrates and publishes works of lasting cultural value and literary excellence" by African-American poets. Established in 2001, these moderated discussions feature poets and scholars who "have played historic roles in African-American poetry." Participants have included Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, Pulitzer Prize winner Rita Dove, poet and activist Amiri Baraka. Launched in 2008, Poets on Craft features “award-winning poets in the early-to-middle stages of their careers. Poets meet in moderated conversation, discussing aesthetics, the role of the contemporary poet and other topical issues.” Participants have included National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Major Jackson and Walt Whitman Award winner Suji Kwock Kim.

Established in 1999, workshops for emerging poets of color are held semi-annually in New York City and, more in Columbia, South Carolina, in partnership with the South Carolina Poetry Initiative. Instructors have included former Poet Laureate of Connecticut, Marilyn Nelson, Whiting Writers' Award winner Tyehimba Jess, American Book Award winner, Kimiko Hahn. In 2016, Cave Canem became the first organization to win the National Book Foundation's Literarian Award for service to the American literary community; the National Book Foundation's executive director Lisa Lucas said: "Cave Canem’s innovative and effective literary activism has been transformative to the world of letters. Their ongoing commitment to provide supportive channels for African American poets to thrive has yielded works that enrich the world’s literary culture." 2006: Gathering Ground: a Reader Celebrating Cave Canem's First Decade ISBN 9780472099245 OCLC 62133808 2007: The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South ISBN 9780820329253 OCLC 71369370 CantoMundo Kundiman
