The 100 Best Native Tongues Songs

37. Jungle Brothers f/ De La Soul, Monie Love & A Tribe Called Quest "Doin' Our Own Dang" (1989)

Producer: Jungle Brothers
Album: Done by the Forces of Nature
Label: Warner Bros. Records

The Jungle Brothers, and the Native Tongues as a whole, borrowed from diverse musical sources, so disco was not off-limits. "Doing Our Own Dang" is aptly titled, since the song comes off like something of a rap jam session, with each member riffing vaguely on positivity and unity, and generally having a good time. Q-Tip stands apart from the others here, sounding youthful and energized, as if poised to take over the world.
