I remember seeing this dude’s video for "Stone Cold Hustler - Pt. II" on Yo! MTV Raps and digging the hell out of it. I immediately started looking for an album from Scorpio, but never found anything. When I was 12 or so, I really had no concept of singles and albums and that a single might be released before an album, or that a video might be made for a single, without an album. So, for about a year I would randomly check my local record stores for an album, but never found anything. Back then, I just thought it meant the album wasn’t available in my area, but if I had the availability to drive to NYC, I’d find all those “lost” albums that I couldn’t find. And, there wasn’t the internet to provide release dates or artist info.
Well, years ago I looked him up (and I think Travis posted something on him previously) and found that he never released an album. Mystery solved as to why I didn’t find an album.
Man, I loved this song and I remember having it taped for a while and listening to it over and over. Well, the video's a bit dated and features an anti-drug message with a lot of "dope" dance moves and some nice '89 styles. I still dig the song though.
"Stone Cold Hustler - Pt. II" video:
I found a MySpace page, but I'm not sure it's official, so feel free to google the man to get more info. It looks like he's still involved with making music in some capacity and there are a few recent videos on YouTube.
