Now on 45 courtesy of Get On Down. We tend to throw around the word "classic" in our hip-hop section quite often, but have we ever been wrong? The single that put Common on the map, and quite possibly one of the most beautiful hip-hop tracks made. This 45 pressing gives us both Large Pro remixes - the Extra P and the Large Professor version. Here Common pulls off the lyrical gymnastics with ease slangin: "I ride the rhythm like a Schwinn bike / When in dim light / I use insight to enlight / Device up in da skin tight / Words of wisdom wail from my windpipe / Imaginations in flight / I send light, like Ben's kite I've been bright / Get open like on gym nights / And in fights I send rights / Don't hook with skins my friends like / I spend nights up in dykes / I've been indicted as a freak of all trades' I got it made." You know what to do...
