Dave Pearce innit
This is how you start an album.
Assured. Structured, yet also sounding like world going completely stir crazy.
This is rubbish, I hate it.
I listened to this in my car solidly for about 6 weeks last year. It is amazing. Great choice.
Namechecking / dropping on this.
Those samples, that scratching - it is so iconic even without the vocal perfomance.
Chuck D has never sounded so assured before or after.
Don’t Believe The Hype
The mix is so counter to how it should be, yet absolutely perfect.
So many dope lines that it is hard to pull one out.
Wierdly still this track. Lack of any hint of ambience. Strangely relaxing.
It is mellow but it does hit hard.
Cold Lampin’ With Flavor
Maybe lcr mix? I love when the stereo stereo samples kick in like a metal band in a chorus.
Chuck D comes across like a prophet. Flavor Flav comes across like The Joker. So polar opposite yet it just works.
Saw the live on this tour. Flavor Flav got on the speaker of a huge PA for this song and was covered in panties thrown at him by the end.
