Cassette Store Day exclusive! Deluxe double cassette boxset of The Jungle Brother's 1988 debut, expanded with full instrumental versions on the second tape. Get On Down went all out and pressed them up on colored tapes (green and red) with full color slipcase featuring graphics from the original cover art. Here's what we had to say about this classic album - The J the I the M the M the Y y'all. The debut of the Jungle Brothers and the introduction to the Natives Tongues crew with their new type of speak. By all means a classic with dancefloor favorites "Jimbrowski, Straight Out the Jungle and Because I Got it Like That." The production is really varied, experimental shit (and house on "I'll House You," duh) going on here back in 1988 with the emergence of afro-centric rhyming and the playful sex style of the Native Tongues crew. This album also features the first appearances of Q-Tip on "Black is Black" and super classic "The Promo." Sounds young as hell but he rips it anyway in an unpolished Tip style. "Sounds of the Safari," "Braggin + Boastin" and "On the Run" hold up the album. Recommended.
