Can't hear this song without seeing an image of Rosie Perez in my head.
Number 1 hip hop song of all time.

this is real hip hop.

This songs brings back the days when Hip Hop had soul! When Hip Hop had pride and stood for something besides getting paid. The days when you had a choice to listen to gansta rap(called reality back then), party rap, pimp rap(Too Short), conscious rap, political rap, alternative rap(De La Soul), or just straight Hip Hop(Eric B. and Rakim). This is the second greatest hip hop song of all time(the greatest was The Message)from the second greatest group(the 1st is RUN D.M.C.).
