Dres caught wreck on this one. It's easily one of the most enduring Native Tongues joints ever. And it would be cool to hear it almost any time—except when you're surrounded by a certain kind of "hip-hop head." You know the type: They're the ones who act all overexcited and annoying whenever the DJ drops a record their mans and them consider "classic." By the time it gets to "Engine engine number 9/On the New York transit line" there's sure to be some bozo jumping around like a demented dervish. Look at me! I'm a Black Sheep too! Real hip-hop forever!
(Full disclosure: White people also played a role in ruining this song, too.)
