I'm not ashamed to admit it: I like samples. I like em better than these crapola keyboard demo arpeggiator beats that seem to have taken over hip hop these days. Which is why I'm glad dudes like this are still around. This track is one of my favorites - B-Side Wins Again!

For all you newjacks who don't know, now you know...where M.I.A. got the source material for her song that is blowing up the Pineapple Express trailers on TV.
I dedicate this one to my girl cause she's a huuuuuge Clash fan, and totally got me back into them and learned me their deeper catalogue.

Straight outta North Cak-a-laka! Yaggfu Front were a 90's 'one hit wonder' group, probably best known for the Diamond D produced "Slappin' Suckas Silly". They put out a single 'concept' album that was the 'soundtrack' to a fictional movie, with skits from in the theater and previews and everything. This joint right here was our favorite jam from their album. This is the remixed instrumental version that was only on the 12". Perfect for a summer day.
