In 1994 it was impossible to get away from this song. The opening bassline is as recognizable and jazzy as anything that came out during the early '90s. Butterfly and company ride the beat with smooth lyrics and a relaxed flow, creating a hypnotizing groove that swung pretty hard for a hip-hop group. The single was a Top 20 hit in 1994 and went on to win the group their first Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Group or Duo.
