Pigeon-holing genres is always dangerous as there is massive crossover. Hip-hop and rap artists saw the potential to release mixes that would be more accessible to djs playing the house style. As a result, many releases (such as this KC Flightt piece) would have a straight breakbeat version with lyrics and a 4 to the floor bassdrum and kick mix. Either way, this is a perfect example of the hip-house style: melodic lyrics, catchy bassline, and a driving 4/4 house theme throughout, in the same vein as Mellow Man Ace, Welcome to My Groove.

The concept of "hip house" always seemed like an odd one to me but that's what some called it for a while in the UK. This track is great though, and would probably be classed as straight hip hop these days. I love the Talking Heads sample in the chorus.
