2. De La Soul f/ Queen Latifah, Monie Love, The Jungle Brothers & A Tribe Called Quest "Buddy (Native Tongues Decision) " (1989)
Producer: Native Tongues
Album: 3 Feet High and Rising
Label: Tommy BoyWarner Bros.
The album version of "Buddy" is a great song in and of itself, but the "Heartbeat"-sampling remix is the definitive Native Tongues posse cut. It's a song that is essentially about chasing tail in nightclubs, but the real draw is to hear the entire Native Tongue crew rapping together and having the time of their lives.
