Everyone and their mother have waxed poetic about how Nasty Nas' breakthrough verse was so revolutionary. As well they should; the teenage Mr. Jones absolutely destroys it. But it's a bit unfair to the rest of the crew to forget that this song didn't just launch Nasir's career, but Akinyele's as well. Granted, Ak might not have become  quite the legend Nas did, but that doesn't mean "Put It In Your Mouth" isn't a classic single, or Vagina Diner isn't an underrated gem. So save them preschool rhymes for the kids at Wonderama. Insanul Ahmed
