Years before Scott Caan would become the pompous character Scott Lavin on Entourage and playing Danno on Hawai'i 5-0, he was a rapper affiliated with Cypress Hill. Yes, you read that right. Scott went by Mad Skillz and together with fellow emcee Mudfoot (years later, he would be known to us as Alchemist), these two PNCs ran together as the rap duo known as The Whooliganz. Their run was in the early 90s, when Cypress and Soul Assassins was running thangs. Although they never officially put out a full length LP, they did drop two singles that were pretty big in the underground scene. Put Your Handz Up was produced by the legendary DJ Lethal and showcases that signature Cypress Hill funk. Hardbody. Whooliganz was produced by Baka Boyz and featured a verse by B-Real. Enjoy these (2)dope slices of nostalgic FUNK.

  • Jack Tripper

    The real irony of this shit is that they sound like a white west coast version of Mobb Deep circa "Juvenile Hell" before they flipped their style to what we know today. This is very similar to how Tom Greene used to rap with Organized Rhyme before he became a comedian/actor....he could spit as well.

    @download I saw an interview with Evidence (he was in a hotel room eating on his bed with no shoes on lol) where he was shown an old picture of him, ALC and a bunch of childhood friends including the lead singer from Crazy Town.

    He mentioned that back then ALC would rap better then he does now.
