video

and try not to get caught up in it. Black and white! Directed by

Fab Five Freddy

! Not quite as classic as the song, but more reminiscent of the medium's (music video's) '80s heyday than most '90s rap vids. The song remains the perfect soundtrack to untighten the muscles in your head and let the blood rush southward.

A Tribe Called Quest

sampled Ronnie Foster's "

Mystic Brew

" and Ramsey Lewis's "

Dreams

" to hypnotic effect. The funniest (and most

performs a matinee show Friday

in St. Paul at

Station 4

: "If my mom don't approve, then I'll just elope/Let me save the little man from inside the bowl/Let me hit it from the back, girl, I won't catch a hernia/Bust off on your couch, now you got semen's furniture."
