off-topic rant incoming so just skip if you want, but even tho it's just some dumb house record from 8 years ago it makes me angry as a Chicagoan
Cabrini-Green was not just "some housing estate in Chicago". it was a nationally famous emblem of everything wrong with housing projects, a dog whistle bogeyman. Candyman used it as a synonym for urban deprivation. in the early 80s the mayor briefly and infamously moved into an apartment there as a publicity stunt (supposedly after she moved out, drug dealers took over the apartment the cops had heavily fortified for her, tho that part may be urban legend). long since torn down - besides one very sad, fenced in, heavily policed stretch of rowhouses - and turned into luxury housing for yuppies, along with a couple token mixed-income buildings. I find it hard to believe some European asshole doing Chicago house pastiche would randomly settle on it. there are (or were) plenty of housing projects, as we call estates in the city. why not call your record Robert Taylor Homes or Stateway Gardens, or some other equally fucked up, long since demolished, less famous place? why not just call yourself Jackmaster [random noun] (Legowelt has such a record, iirc)? no, it's what Cabrini signified, and Marquis Hawkes sounds like a fucking 1970s blacksploitation pimp. fuck Mark Hawkins.
the other stuff in that article is gross too but that one is just unbelievable // rant over
the real Cabrini-Green (and a great piece of mid-80s drum machine rap a la "PSK" or Eazy-E, if you fancy that kind of thing)
