Track Review: Nas - "Where Are They Now (Remix)"
Good lord. I wasn't even old enough to fully appreciate these guys when they were around, and I'm going crazy. I can only imagine what thirty-somethings are doing right now listening to Nas's new remix, where he answers the question he posed in the original. And the answer is that they are all right there in the studio with him. From sohh.com:
The "Where Are They Now" remix features 90's rappers Redhead Kingpin, Rob Base, Original Spinderella, Father MC, Monie Love, Mike Gee of the Jungle Brothers, E-S-T of 3XDope, Positive K, Das Efx, DoItAll of Lords of the Underground, Chip-Fu of the Fu-Schnickens and Dres of Black Sheep spittin' over the "Where Are They Now" track blended with beats from their 90's hits, including "It Takes Two," "We Want Efx," "True Fu-Schnick"and "The Choice is Yours," among others.

Awesome. Especially exciting (for me anyway) is hearing Das EFX (who bring it) and Chip-Fu of Fu Schnickens (who maybe wins the gold). Though the beat-blending isn't totally seamless, it's not distracting at all, and at times it's downright awesome. All in all, this might be the best thing associated with an already solid record.
The Sea and Cake - The Sea and Cake set date for new LP Menomena, The Wombats Video: Menomena and Choir, live in Portland

Track Review

This song is great. There was so much more variety in styles and delivery back then.

Dave Park

ha, he shouts out Chi Ali. From Funky Lemonade to felon. Anyway thanks for making me feel old, I remember all these cats (Pos K sounds a little worse for wear though). Chip Fu was the Chali 2na of his day, he just carried the group.

The song is great..... It would be much better if YOU GOT THE REAL TITO FROM THE FEARLESS 4. What's with the fill in? That was definitely not him... Ask any body on that track that knows the real Tito -Mo Dee, Kango, Pebbles, Kaz. Ask the Fearless Four!!!! THATS NOT HIM!!! Can you bless us with the true Tito from the Fearless.. Play any of the tracks he has ever done-- they sound nothing like this guy pretending to be him... holla at G-Rap ,Rakim,Big Daddy Kane just to name a few more authentic rappers from then. I am sure they can tell you, THIS GUY IS NOT THE ONE. Check the vocals.
