Yes yes y'all, ya don't stop, KRS-One, rock on!

I'm bout to hit you wit that tradional style of cold rockin
Givin options for head knockin non stoppin
Tip-toppin lyrics we droppin but styles can be forgotten
so we bring back the raw hip-hoppin...

That's that shit right there!  I freakin' love this song.  This was my joint back in 1997.  I'd always throw it on to get hyped up for a game or just wake up from a shitty mood.  Even though the hook is kind of laid back and it utilizes a sample/interpretation of Blondie's pop hit "Rapture", it's straight fight music once that beat kicks in. 

It's one of those songs that everyone seems to forget about but they will go nuts once they actually hear it.  I used to throw this on every few months while DJ'n at the club just to keep everyone on their toes and it would always get the place going crazy.  It might have started a fight or two but it was worth it for the energy it brought to the room.

In case you don't remember Blondie's "Rapture" or are too young to have ever heard it, check out the video below.  Although Debbie Harry's rapping is painful, in a weird way it kind of helped Rap music as a whole.  This was one of the first real mainstream songs to introduce rapping to the masses so it should get at least some street cred for that.  If for nothing else, it's worth watching for the goofy looking Flava Flav wannabe dancing like a fool...
