Intertextuality and Mad Beats

Compare that with the track it's a homage of:

Guru and Zion put together a dark re-imagining of the original that's as clever as any literary re-interpretation out there.  It reveals the underpinnings - the social and cultural context, if you will - of A Tribe Called Quest's original song, and while purists will probably judge it as not quite as good, it is still a goddamn amazing track.  Listen, and when you do, pay attention to how flow mirrors flow.
