Cipha Sounds Presents: The 75 Greatest Tunnel Bangers

12. Akinyele "Put It In Your Mouth" (1996)

Producer: Chris Forte
Album: Put It In Your Mouth EP
Label: Stress, Zoo, BMG

Cipha Sounds: "I was an Akinyele fan from before this, and when I heard it, I was like, this is wack, I don't understand why he made this record. But when I first started going to the Tunnel, my manager Jessica, who was the promoter at the Tunnel and also Flex's manager, a.k.a. Stressica (Stress Entertainment), she started managing Akinyele. And I went to the Tunnel and they played 'Put It In Ya Mouth,' and people went crazy. And I thought, really? I didn't get it. And it just became a huge hip-hop record. I was late on that."
