So I’m going to keep classics week going and I’m going to stay on the hip hop side but a bit newer than Aapies storming track yesterday.
The Alkaholiks, Only When I’m Drunk.
Based on a sample from the classic hip hop/funk track Seven Minutes of Funk, this used to be a constant in my dj sets. That break coupled with some superb MC’ing takes this track to another level. Some of the lines are pretty near the mark but there are some brilliant ones too and after a couple of pretty funny verses they finish off with a quite poignant one. Hip Hop as it should be.
