Late pass!

"It's gettin' hot in herre so take off all your nose
I am gettin' so hot that I'm about to take my nose off"

Digital Underground ft. J. Stalin- Hyphy Hump
(From The Greenlight EP; 2010)

As the popular parlance goes, I was today years old when I found out that Digital Underground recorded a Hyphy sequel to The Humpty Dance which interpolates Nelly's Hot In Herre. A legit slumpah which isn't that big a shock since Digital Underground were poppin' pills and wearin' stunna shades in NorCal decades before Mac Dre.

Related thought: is Packet Man (Worth A Packet Mix) the only good CJ Mackintosh remix ever or wot? Shit sounds like a New Jack Swing track produced by Khayree, which is obviously some wonderful shit to sound like.

CJ's mix of Bonita Applebum using Carly Simon's Why is the superior version imo

Not heard that. Why is such a jam I can't believe it's never been used on a big Rap song.

Gah, I accidentally pressed delete on the replies. Sorry Step and Smell Rell.

^ Khayree-produced New Jack Swing

something about Why not being that big in the US maybe? Think it got revived over here in the late 80s off the back of the rare groove and balearic thing. Was a sunrise tune at the early acid raves apparently.

I'll send the Bonita remix over later if you like.

Please do, Step. If you've got the instrumental can you send that over too?

Anonymous, wow, can totally tell it's a Khayree production from the guitar. Bit disappointed it doesn't have any of his trademark synthetic saxophone tho 🎷
