De La Soul feat. Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, Monie Love & Queen Latifah — Buddy [Native Tongue Decision] /
Produced by Prince Paul
And here is the quintessential Native Tongues posse cut. While not the first, it’s playful video and "Heartbeat" sample ensured it made the most impact. This is the only track that features vocals from all of the core members, adding Phife, Monie Love, and Queen Latifah (listen closely, she’s there) to the album version’s line up.
When people talk about “BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN HIP HOP WAS FUN, YO”, they’re most likely thinking about this record. With joints like this, "Jimbrowski", and "Bonita Applebum", the crew was well known for making songs about physical relations relatable and respectful. Not that there’s anything wrong with "Talk Like Sex".
