« Hello world!Hello world! After seeing the recordâs impact in Memphis, the Showboys decided to take a road trip through the deep south and see where else Triggerman might be ringing off for themselves. âThen, we got to when we sort of had a pattern laid down and we were fucking around with the keyboard, thatâs when we came up with the [xylophone sound] and Brian Perkins started doing that over the top.â. âItâs a television show with a commercial break in the middle.â, For Hall and Price, picking the Wendyâs catchphrase was a no-brainer, but the call to incorporate the whistle came from a famous friend. âWe ended up doing about 24 shows in 10 days. and Lil Wayne used it for âBall,â which was a huge record, and our split on that should have been at least 50 [percent] and they hit us with, âOh, that moneyâs recoup.â 30 years [later] and they pull out a recoup card.â. They recorded several singles for Profile Records in the mid-80's, including a song called Drag Rap (Triggerman) in which a twisted tale of revenge-seeking gangsters unfolded over a richly syncopated beat. Instead of responding to the subject matter, however, in the Big Easy the fans responded to the beat. They recorded several singles for Profile Records in the mid-80's, including a song called Drag Rap (Triggerman) in which a twisted tale of revenge-seeking gangsters unfolded over a richly syncopated beat. Built like a procedural TV show â the intro promises that âMCsâ names have been changed to protect the innocentâ â and clocking in at over six minutes, âDrag Rapâ weaves the tale of a heated turf war between two ruthless Queens gangsters, âBugsâ Can Can and Phil D, AKA âTriggerman.â In a unique twist, the song forgoes a hook in favor of a commercial break that drew upon two of the hottest ads at the time â Wendyâs iconic âWhereâs the beef?â campaign and a whistle used to sell Irish Spring soap. Everybody knows about it, but we just donâ t know. Hall remembers, âThe waitress said to us, âWhat are yâall doing down here?â âOh, we came to do a show.â âWho are yâall?â âShowboys.ââ, âShe said, âWhat?â and she wailed off from the table. âWe made the record in â86 [for a] $2,500 advance and keep the rest,â says Hall. It took nearly three years after its original release before the Showboys finally got wind of âDrag Rapââs reach. The promoters flew the guys down to Memphis for the weekend, but even still, they werenât quite aware just how big the record was until they got off the plane. âAfter we got all of the sound in, he went back and played [the bones] live by hand for six minutes with no mistakes. The result was âA Triggerman Weekendâ at Memphis nightclub Studio G. Despite being out of the game for years, Hall and Price quickly got their show together. In her book God Save the Queen Diva!, Big Freedia puts it even more directly: âIf it has the Triggerman beat, itâs Bounce!â. Me and Trig was like, âWhat the fuck is going on?â, âWe decided, âFuck it, letâs just go find the radio station,ââ Hall continues. âHe told us, âYo, some promoter called yâall for a show.ââ, âNo, he said, âA promoter called for a show, but he said heâs looking for the guys that made âTriggerman,ââ says Hall. There are records that changed the course of hip-hop history â Blondieâs âRapture,â Run-D.M.C.âs âWalk This Way,â N.W.A.âs âStraight Outta Comptonâ and Geto Boyâs âMind Playing Tricks On Meâ are just a few that come to mind of many, many more. And while both Memphis and New Orleans can rightfully lay claim to the record, current consensus credits Memphis DJ Spanish Fly for breaking the song in the deep south. How many people have really sampled Triggerman?
