The 100 Best Native Tongues Songs

28. De La Soul "Fanatics of the B Word" (1991)

Producer: De La Soul & Prince Paul
Album: De La Soul Is Dead
Label: Tommy Boy/Warner Bros.

This song is strange, even for De La. They are out-stranged however, by Dres of Black Sheep, in his debut verse. He raps about a foggy window and Chinese food and makes it sound like the illest rhyme ever kicked. Time and time again the Native Tongues showed that eccentricity in rap is good when done the right way.
