ReviewA fantastic collection of work from a real golden age in hip hop - a period that you'll probably guess from the image of the Native Tongues posse on the front - served up here in a compilation that brings together classics from De La Soul, The Jungle Brothers, Monie Love, and many others! The set list is superb - and while most of the tracks are well-remembered gems, and not the kind of rare cuts we usually hear from Ace Records - taken together, they're a tremendous rder of a when hip hop really came alive - bursting with wit, wisdom, and a whole new sense of musical imagination! As usual with Ace, the liner notes and other details are great - making this way more than just a slap-dash mix of hits - and titles include "You're Not Coming Home (Mase's funkay recall mix)" by Groove Garden, "Age Ain't Nothin But A #" by Chi Ali, "Bonita Applebum" by Tribe Called Quest, "Sunshine Men" by Freestyle Fellowship, "Peachfuzz" by KMD, "K Sera Sera" by Justin Warfield, "It's A Shame" by Monie Love, "Doin Our Own Dang" by Jungle Brothers, "OPP" by Naughty By Nature, "Doowutchyalike" by Digital Underground, "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays" by De La Soul, "The Choice Is Yours" by Black Sheep, "All For One" by Brand Nubian, "My Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style" by Dream Warriors, "Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children" by Queen Latifah with De La Soul, "Where I'm From" by Digable Planets, and "We Run Things (It's Like Dat)" by Da Bush Babees.
