For the record, THIS was my favourite song of 2007 even from the moment I heard crap-quality YouTube live footage of it’s first performed unveiling late last Summer.

I said back then (and I paraphrase), it’s like etheral Pharcyde vibes + boyish Souls of Mischief flows: a perfect throwback to early Leftcoast and I fly away on it every time.

The remix is decent, bit late, but decent (mastered poorly though).  Pharrell ego-trips it (though I like the “Neptune’s trident” quip). Q-Tip firmly belonged on this beat though, that’s relative.

Nonetheless the additional Jazz/Lounge reworking is the real gem here. Where’s badman Richard Cheese when you need him?

I challenge you to tell me Lupe is not a great emcee.
