Van Full of Pakistans from ATL based group Y'all So Stupid always ranked high on my list of One and Done albums released in the 90s.
The album title always seemed strange to me. Even stranger, the title track was released as a second single. I never heard it announced on the radio, but I'm sure DJs had fun reading the title "Van Full of Pakistans by Y'all So Stupid".
The chorus and lyrics speak to various problems the emcees may have been going through, so I sort of figured the title was a metaphor of sorts. Today (through the magic of Twitter), I got an answer from group member, H2O:
"yes, a complete metaphor. A Van Full Of Pakistans = A Song Full Of Problems: the van = the song & the Pakistans = the problems."
There you have it. I would have asked him to expound, but then it wouldn't be a (very) brief conversation.
Y'all So Stupid - Van Full of Pakistans
Y'all So Stupid - Van Full of Pakistans (Spearhead X Remix)
Album version is a nice little track, but the remix wins for me.
