…beyond their flamboyant presentation and bohemian sensibility, the Native Tongues were about constructing haunting, beautiful songs out of the fuzzy, bassy, scratchy, nearly forgotten remnants of virtually every black American musical tradition that ever seduced mainstream audiences. With a focus on the core members, we got the good folks from The T.R.O.Y. Blog to figure out The 100 Greatest Native Tongues Songs…
We put together this mammoth list to give new jacks a guide to the Native Tongues discography and old fans an excuse to listen to these gems again with older, wiser ears. These are songs by Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Chi-Ali, and others; can you really go wrong? March on over to Complex.com and get down with our virtual, interactive (streaming audio for every entry!) tour of one of our favorite portions of hip hop history.

In the late 80s and early 90s, the loosely affiliated Native Tongues crew brought a playful bohemian warmth to hip-hop, helping to expand the genre’s boundaries. And now Black Sheep leader Dres has reunited luminaries from four principal Native Tongues groups (De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, and Black Sheep) for the Black Sheep single “Birds of a Feather.”
Tribe’s Q-Tip, De La’s Dave, and the Jungle Brothers’ Mike Gee all appear on the track, which is from Black Sheep’s forthcoming album From the Black Pool of Genius, due June 29.
Shouts to Pitchfork for this.
There’s a good variety of flavours on this one, ranging from straight-up Hip Hop on the Meth, Xzibit and Mobb Deep tracks, to the reggae re-rubs of the Jungle Brothers and Fugees joints. The West Coast is represented on the “West Up!” remix and the ATL gets a look in with 2 Outkast joints. As with the first set, some of these are ripped from vinyl, others have been posted on blogs and forums. I’ve credited the creators where possible so click the links and show them some love if you like what you hear.

Some people love them, some people hate them, but here we go with the final installment of my Remix Packs. For #5, I bring you all the remixes that I loved in the 90’s that lean heavily towards the alternative/metal/electronic side. I’m going to guess that Onyx and Biohazzard’s collaboration for the Judgement Night Soundtrack went so well that they teamed up again for the “Slam” remix. And I liked the House Of Pain mix so much I don’t see any reason that I wouldn’t enjoy the Naughty By Nature track either. Dr. Octagon was ahead of his time and on some other level shit in 1996. Last up is Mr. Meth. It was a toss up between the the Prodigy Mix of “Release Yo Delf” and the Chemical Brothers mix for “Bring The Pain.” Both are great in different ways.
Remix Pack 5
01 Onyx-Slam (Bionyx Remix)
02 House Of Pain-Shamrocks & Shenanigans (Boom Shalock Lock Boom) (Butch Vig Mix)
03 Dr. Octagon-Bear Witness (2 Turntables & A Razor Blade Re-Edit)
04 Method Man-Release Yo’ Delf (Prodigy Mix)
05 Naughty By Nature-Hip Hop Hooray (Thrash Mix)
As an added bonus I’ve created a pack of alternative artists that received the remix treatment by the hip hop industry. Most are pretty obvious, the “Nickel Bag” remix was done by the Dust Brothers and “Make Out City” is by Mike Simpson (one half of the Dust Brothers). I truly feel that these 5 remixes are worth 15 minutes of your time. I’ve also cleverly combined Remix Packs 5 & 6 together so you’re going to get these songs whether you want them or not.
Remix Pack 6
01 Sublime-Doin’ Time (Marshall Arts Remix) feat. The Pharcyde
02 Beck-Where It’s At (Make Out City) (Remix by Mike Simpson)
03 Rage Against The Machine-Bullet In The Head (Sir Jinx Remix)
04 Propellerheads-Take California & Party feat. Jungle Brothers
05 Filter-Hey Man Nice Shot (Nickel Bag)
In 2002, The Jungle Brothers released their sixth studio album titled “All That We Do”. Did y’all think that it was their last studio album? No, in 2006, The J Beez released a Japan-only studio album titled “I Got U“. I would normally never post new albums but I was thinking that since it hasn’t been scheduled for a release outside of Japan, why not unearth it to you readers? I Got U has a experimental sound to it. The album combines an old school & funky sound from these Rap Legends (since ’87). Mike G is definitely on point each tracks with Baby Bam on the production tip. If you can find it, Buy It! You won’t be dissapointed! Enjoy,
