The Rhymes of Our Lives

I bought the cassestte single of this back when I was twelve years old.

If LL Cool J's "I'm Bad" was the first hip hop song I ever learned, then I think this was the second. I remember seeing the video on MTV and thinking, "Wow! Is this rap?" At the time, the popular hip hop of the day was coming from California and involved extensive amounts of challenging vocabulary, with which I couldn't really identify. So to hear some cats who were taking steps to be clever and have fun was refreshing.

A Tribe Called Quest has got to be the greatest hip hop group of all time.
