  1. How they put a words from the holly quran on a belly dances thats very wrong allah dont love that rakim u must know that if u a muslim

  2. These guys made it big thanks largely to Coldcut. They paid in full – all of £700. Because I don’t like to dream about getting paid. Thinking about the…money. Still the result was one of the best Hip Hop songs.

  3. Spotify, for Pete's sake why we can't listen to Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em and Don't Sweat The Technique albums…

  4. Translation from 0:36 section please? I don't mean the whole text that's flying, but what the voice is singing.
    Anyone? Thank you

  5. Yes! That beat tho…sampled from "Don't look any further" by Dennis Edwards. One of the most used beats of all time! 😎

  9. This the man that taught me how to use the dictionary. To find words that would wipe out all curses and bad words towards women. And in my writing career I haven't cursed for many of my writtens.

  10. this is not the original version of this song. It's called the cold cut remix it was on the soundtrack to the movie Colors, I like the album version better

  11. this song probably represents the full maturity of hip hop. you can take Paid and Full and divide history before and after.
