Much More – De La Soul feat. DJ Premier & Yummy Bingham

“Gama Ray rap, I make the Hulk Snap” – Dave (Plug Two from De La)

Over it’s 2 seasons The Chapelle Show featured many great performances from some of Hip-Hops elite.  One of which that always stood out to me was De La Soul performing the J-Dilla produced Much More off of their 2004 album The Grind Date.  Although DJ Premier didn’t make an appearance,(featured talking shit on the intro to the record) De La still managed to bring Yummy Bingham to help-out on the chorus.  Brilliant minds think alike too, peep Plug Two rocking the Hulk Hand for his verse.Much More – De La Soul Feat.

Public Enemy – Rebel Without A Pause

“Yes, the rhythm the rebel without a pause I‘m lowering my level”

 

takes-a-nation

Here we have rap at its finest, something that cannot be denied. What I am speaking of today is Public Enemy’s Rebel Without a Pause. Chuck D is a powerful MC, he drops hardcore political science over funky head rocking drums. The sample is so sick its similar to a tea kettle reaching its peak temperature about to explode then looped over again. Flav does his usual hype man duties but what I cannot ignore is the revolutionary scratching of Terminator X on the cut. X’s cutting on this record really does put the cherry on top and at the time made PE a force to be reckoned with. HHTT APPROVED
