24. Jungle Brothers "Straight Out the Jungle" (1988)
Producer: Jungle Brothers
Album: Straight Out The Jungle
Label: Idlers/Warlock Records
The Jungle Brothers' anthem and mission statement. Bill Withers, Mandrill and a few other sources provide the perfect landscape for Mike G. and Baby Bam's deceptively simple style to run amok. More than any other song, "Straight Out the Jungle" provides a glimpse into the world that the Jungle Brothers construct: a labyrinthine NYC filled with tension, animosity, and wonder.
