Anybody that rolls their eyes at the inclusion of a beer commercial on a 100 Best List was not there real time when the spot was played on TV. The St. Ides series of rap-related ads remains one of the few outstanding instances in which hip-hop blatantly mixed with advertising dollars produced something fresh. Adding "Shaolin Brew" to the background of the skit that precedes "Spot Rusherz" brought back immediate memories and made everyone wish they had a copy of the song. Of course, today, the Interwebz makes it possible to enjoy this one all over again.
