Mantronix has to be one of the best Hip Hop producers of all time, the cover is dope.

this blew my mind back then, also it's cover still gives me chills, when i look at it...it's probably the best graffiti cover i've ever seen...

the tune itself clearly defines, what rap should be like, i totally agree with edge on this...and if you got some good speakers you'll be enjoying it's funcking hard 16 step-808 bassdrum-overkill...i once blasted out a glassdoor with it, believe it or not!!!

also it's rhymes are legandary and the vocoder is just too much...a standout NY classic, and anyone disliking it doesn't feel shit about hiphop!

I think that this track symbolises what hip-hop music is really all about. I cannot count the amount of times i had this track cranked up on some serious volume and driving my parents crazy. I loved it way back in the day when it first came out and i still jam it plenty now.
