"it's your attitude, Greg Nice, and your sideburns and that fade superstar haircut.."
Who knew Nice & Smooth's Early To Rise had a video? And not just any old video but one with an extended intro over More And More Hits where Greg Nice & Smooth B trade homoerotic compliments on some proto-The Essence type shit and make eyes at each other? Not me until YouTube threw it up in my recommendations yesterday:
(From Nice & Smooth album; 1989)
Other talking points here: Greg & Smooth bowling around a pool hall in those Dapper Dan garms from their debut LP's cover; a pool party which looks like it was shot in the same backyard as Cam'Ron's persona-deflating "it's gonna be a real motherf**kin' hot summer!" video; Early To Rise's status as a top 20 opening song on a rap album of all time.
