7. Jungle Brothers f/ Q-Tip "The Promo" (1988)
Producer: Jungle Brothers
Album: Straight Out The Jungle
Label: Idlers/Warlock Records
"The Promo" and "In Time" were not enough for hardcore Jungle Brothers fans in search of more B-side wizardry. "The Promo Part 2" is more of the same goodness and something every Native Tongues fan needs to hear. Over a break later reused by Pete Rock for Heavy D. and by Sir Jinx for Ice Cube, Q-Tip, Mike G. and Baby Bam rap about progress-aesthetic, social, political, and otherwise. From fades to braids, onward we go.
