B-Real, Coolio, Method Man, LL Cool J And Busta Rhymes - Hit Em High



"I'm startin' a line-up by gettin' y'all to bring the livestock"

Um, remember in that last post I explained how the late-80's/early-90's were a weird time for rap music, as big business figured out there was money to be made from hip-hop culture? Well, um, I guess this video shows that the mid-90's were a weird time too.

This song is from Space Jam, a movie which somehow starred both Bugs Bunny AND Michael Jordan. It is not good. That said, I do kind of like this song. B-Real, Method and Busta all put in respectable efforts considering the blandness of the beat.

Also, I'm willing to bet that this is the only time that Coolio and a member of the Wu appear on the same track.

PS: LL Cool J namechecks Bob Dole.
