'Bonita Applebum' for me...

The Pastiche Liberation Front (sonnyboy), Monday, 11 November 2013 22:36 (six years ago) link

"Can I Kick It?," one of the first rap songs I ever memorized.

YES YOU CAN

"Can I Kick It?" also, not just because it was fabulous on record but because it was the greatest moment of all time at Lollapalooza in 1994

Euler, Monday, 11 November 2013 22:39 (six years ago) link

some perfunctory stuff on here, and a load of clunky Phife rhymes, but man the highs are unfuckwithable. between Can I Kick It, Bonita Applebum and After Hours for me.

'bonita appelbum'

I cannot believe ppl are blanking "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo"

more noticeable now than twenty years ago but then I listen and go, "Piss off, it's fuckin' Tribe."

I have often wondered if Tribe had ever been to El Segundo at the time of recording that tune, or if they just picked it at random off a map

Ayn Rand Akbar (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 11 November 2013 22:49 (six years ago) link

i dunno, i don't think of this as having much filler, and so many all-time jams on this: "footprints", "after hours", "can i kick it", "description of a fool", "mr muhammad"

the late great, Monday, 11 November 2013 22:49 (six years ago) link

although i admit i never really got into "el segundo"

the late great, Monday, 11 November 2013 22:50 (six years ago) link

is Ham 'N' Eggs filler? because that's on steady rotation in Eulerland

Euler, Monday, 11 November 2013 22:51 (six years ago) link

for me it will probably be down to "footprints" / "after hours" / "can i kick it"

El Segundo was always referenced on 'Sanford & Son' I believe the story goes

which is the one with the organ hook?

Impossible to vote against Can I Kick It.

Youthful Expression xp?

Me & Mahomies (Spottie_Ottie_Dope), Monday, 11 November 2013 23:33 (six years ago) link

give "footprints" another listen

the late great, Monday, 11 November 2013 23:35 (six years ago) link

voting "Bonita" for the breakbeat

Yeah footprints when the snare kicks in is great.

always loved Rhythm for the way it uses the synth sample from the 12" remix of Pull Up To The Bumper.

piscesx, Tuesday, 12 November 2013 10:52 (six years ago) link

I recently bought this on vinyl, having long cherished my CD copy, and was dismayed that Description Of A Fool wasn't on there. But I probs won't be picking that. Maybe After Hours or Lucien, but its all good.

The remix album that came out shortly after is ace for how it captures that brief moment when hip-hop was all about the reggae and the ragga.

Vic Arpeggio, Private Investigator (stevie), Tuesday, 12 November 2013 10:58 (six years ago) link

Or Footprints, that track is killer. But probs After Hours, for the bit with all the frogs.

Vic Arpeggio, Private Investigator (stevie), Tuesday, 12 November 2013 10:59 (six years ago) link

I love this album so much

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Sunday, 17 November 2013 00:01 (six years ago) link

Voted Afterhours but really love the whole album, so many great little moments e.g. the goofy interjections at the end of the lines in Mr Muhammad

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Sunday, 17 November 2013 00:17 (six years ago) link

For a second I was Did I click on the VU 3rd album by accident, there

Missed the poll, love this album so much. Bought it in D.C., then moved to Minneapolis where kids were rapping "Can I Kick It" in the back of the bus.

Pete Scholtes, Monday, 18 November 2013 03:58 (six years ago) link

Listened to this a lot during my flights out West for a project I was working on in El Segundo.
