"Jungle Brothers - Yeah!"

Eh, not sure how to feel about this. Been hearing they were coming out with a new album soon, but I'm worried if this is the song they chose as the single. Baby Bam's Greg Nice vocal style on the first and third verse don't work, and the lyrics are so simple it hurts. They've actually had some decent guest spots over the past few years that made me hopeful for new stuff.

I must admit the JBs never hit me like De La and especially Tribe, but I've always respected them and the parts they've played in the Native Tongue history. JBeez with the remedy was the first joint I ever bought, then went back to the others. Remedy was an interesting album because it had some straightforward stuff I really enjoyed and the weird shit at the end (which was taken from the Crazy wisdom masters) album that got shelved that didn't work. Based on their earlier stuff I was surprised that they really didn't seem all that deep and lacked the complex rhyme styles to stay relevant. That said they seem to have picked up the pace in recent years and I'll always support Native Tongues founders. Speaking of which there is a Native Tongue fest scheduled for July 18th or so in DC featuring a decent lineup for anyone on the East Coast.

What are everyone's favorite Jungle Brothers joints and do you still check for them like I do? Or are they too corny and outdated for you to care?

im a huge de al and tribe fan but somehow never checked out the JBs. know them by name but thats it. i did watch their interview with sway a few weeks back and checked out their first two albums. they were good but i guess since im already so familiar with tribe and de la the elements i see they each took from the JBs just dont hit me as well. i prefer how tribe and de la each improved on the sound.

i did hear their new song and i like it. dont love it but its cool.

im planning to still listen to the rest of their albums and give their first ones more tries.

have the same depth and impact as the others.

They've gone through many styles and approaches over the years but to me they seem like a group that has more respect than devotion. None of the fellow heads in my life even check for them at all. Some of the early style while sounded dated is cohesive and well made, like Done By The Forces or Nature.
It's probably a few songs too long but nothing is wack.

When I saw the JBeez Wit The Remedy album cover I was intrigued. Had heard of them from De La and Tribe obviously but knew nothing else about them. I love that cover so much man, just seemed colorful as mysterious for some reason.

Raw Deluxe is the most "modern" sounding of their stuff and has some gems on it. The cover art for that one signals a move back to basics and I feel one last attempt at fitting in with the current hip hop climate that was far more dark and serious than playful. Brain is the jam, but the Refugee Camp remix is the shit. After that things get messy. Lot of dance stuff, Baby Bam's odd Pagan society phase which got him clowned on by Busta and Pharrell in the infamous backstage clip. I thought they were done but the U.K. And Europe seem to embrace them enough to keep it going. Sammy B did play one of those Tribe album release parties in 2016 which warmed my heart.

Big fan of Straight Out the Jungle and Done By the Forces of Nature..

Liked about half of JBeez w/the Remedy..

I haven't checked for new shit by them since then. I have a gut feeling it wouldn't be anything I'd be into.

and I will fight you over that.

I remember maybe two songs from remedy...aint 40 Below Trooper on there? And My Jimmy Weighs a Ton or something? I could be totally wrong, iono...

Their first two albums are dope... "Nature" is an undisputed classic.

The song "Troopin' on the down low" used to get play on The Black Rock Coalition Radio show ("Strange Vibrations from the Hardcore") so that song hit with us Black Rockers (there was a promo of it out there that the BRC radio got a hold of)


There is a detailed exploration of this album in the book "The Greatest Music Never Sold: Secrets of Legendary Lost Albums by David Bowie, Seal, Beastie Boys, Chicago, Mick Jagger and More! by Dan LeRoy

Mike G gives some quotes (and this other rapper who appeared on it) but Bam didn't want to give any quotes because Mike G said he was pretty unhappy that the album didn't come out, so he wasn't feeling like talking about it.
