All this recent talk about "Fight the power" has me wondering what y'all's favorite tracks are from them. I think it's wild how their beats had so much energy, hard hitting drums, soul, AND the right amount of noise to really set you off. It took me a while to get into their sound, since I got into Rap in 93, when their sound wasn't as dominant. I actually wasn't a fan of Amerikkka's most wanted when I first heard it, and preferred Cube's production on Death Certificate...but that sound makes a lot more sense to me now.

and the video is a top 5 PE video IMO (after Baseheads, Black Steel, Fight The Power etc). the Paris cameo, the extended verse... Flav acting a fool with purpose. I always found it funny that BET would play that video, but MTV would not.
Yet, "By The Time I Get To Arizona".... on MTV, but not BET.
I think G-Wiz did "Get The Fuck Outta Dodge". Apocalypse 91 was when they stopped using much of the Bomb Squad.
