Album Review: White People by Handsome Boy Modeling School

Mediocre, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 50
Based on rating 5/10

Five years after their rightfully revered debut, So...How's Your Girl?, brainiac producers Prince Paul and Dan the Automator return with Handsome Boy Modeling School's a-little-too-smug sophomore release, White People.

The Guardian - 40
Based on rating 2/5

If the idea of Handsome Boy Modeling School doesn't annoy, it should. An R&B prank comprised of two US rap producers using pseudonyms and famous friends, it barely hides an in-joke smirk. The guilty parties are Gorillaz producer Dan Nakamura and De La Soul associate "Prince Paul" Huston, with the help of Pharrell Williams, Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos and others.
