67. De La Soul "The Hustle" (1996)
Producer: Da Beatminerz
Album: America Is Dying Slowly
Label: East West/Elektra
The Hustle sounds out of place on the America Is Dying Slowly compilation, but it's a great little De La gem that often gets overlooked. Pos and Dave sound great over Da Beatminerz' production, which is harder-edged and more minimalist-sounding than your typical De La joint.
