001x1999 WCW WRESTLING CD: RAP IS CRAP; CURT HENNIG, WEST TEXAS REDNECKS, MASTER P
STARTING BID – $49.95

A real, rare piece of wrestling memorabilia up for grabs here, the promotional album WCW put out for The West Texas Rednecks. Included are five tracks, “Good Ol’ Boys” the Rednecks’ original theme and four different cuts of the country classic “Rap Is Crap”.

I don’t think I ever realized that “Good Ol’ Boys” is nothing more than a reworked version of the WCW theme Jimmy Hart wrote for Jeff Jarrett.

The West Texas Rednecks are a group seemingly remembered fondly by fans online anytime I’ve mentioned them in passing or featured them on Facebook/Twitter. However, I missed out on a lot of their storylines due to completely detesting all things related to Master P. My 15-year-old self had pledged his allegiance to Bad Boy Records and had zero interest in being subjected to terrible hip-hop music out of New Orleans. Ignoring the No Limit Soldiers videos on MTV and BET were one thing, but when they infiltrated my favorite wrestling promotion and started to feud with The West Texas Rednecks, I just stopped watching Nitro entirely.

Granted, there were other terrible storylines around the summer of 1999 that also killed my interest in WCW (Savage/Nash feud involving raw sewage, for example), but Silkk the Shocker celebrating his birthday on Nitro was too much for me.

Curt Hennig — born in Minnesota, leader of The West Texas Rednecks.

Due to my dislike of No Limit and my proud Texas heritage, I probably should’ve been the biggest fan of The West Texas Rednecks! Unfortunately, I ended up tuning out altogether for several months instead. I think I spent that summer trying to beat Final Fantasy VIII as the replacement obsession to fill my wrestling void. Probably a better use of my vacation time, to be honest.

Contemplating trying to win this auction just to upload all the tracks, but that $50 start price might be enough to dissuade me here. If any of you out there win this, I’ll be happy to grab a CD-R copy from ya. Only by working together will we be able to upload these tracks onto the Internet and keep me from wasting my $$$ on more useless WCW merch.

Good find as always! I have a morbid fascination with 1999 WCW specifically, and I’ll never forget this storyline despite having no earthly idea who Master P was at the time (didn’t really get into hip-hop until college).

Also, for whatever reason, my child-self was convinced that the chorus to the No Limit Soldiers’ theme was “Hoody Hoo! But perhaps ya’ll do!”

Next to the Kiss debacle that angle was the 2nd worst attempt WCW did…..and I’m a Kiss fan since 76.Even though part of me would love to have seen a Kiss Stable…..

This stable was undoubtedly one of my absolute favorite things in WCW’s Post-Fingerpoke Era, and I’m a New Yorker who can never get my head around country music.

I remember attending a Nitro at the Nassau Colosseum at some point around this time, maybe even sometime after the West Texas Rednecks had disbanded, and while the WCW Mayhem CD was being piped over the PA system before the show, practically the entire arena stopped what they were doing just to clap along when “I Hate Rap” came on. Wonderful.
