I love this song, I really do. It is a powerful statement of intent, wonderful rapped in great style. It is just a shame however, that this newly pressed 7 inched disc, does not have a "clean" version on the other side, as opposed to an instrumental. As I can never play the song when my mam is at home, because of the multiple uses of the f-word (you know the one). I was hoping, that Pharoahe Monch would perhaps re-record a "clean" version, where he says "Get the FLIP up" instead. But alas, this has not happened and as a result, I will not be buying this disc!!

Yes my copy is also completely destroyed by some weird oil residue and little bumps/cracks all over the place.

Instrumental and acapella are included, that's why I bought it even at 2000 yens ! B side is average.

A modern day hip-hop anthem that managed the difficult task of pleasing the b-boys and being a club classic. Once that horns sampled from Godzilla came in, you knew there was going to be mayhem on the dancefloor.
Sadly this track suffered from over-kill, it was too easy for a DJ to get a reaction from this tune, so for years you would hear it everywhere you went!
No-one ever gives credit to Pharoahe Monch for also producing the track himself, he built his reputation as an MC but he also outdid a lot of established beatmakers by making one of the most recognised hip-hop beats of all time!
