This is the first single from Blackalicious's third album, "The Craft," and while the chorus hook -- which seems like a forced attempt to turn the song into a banging club anthem -- is a bit grating, everything else is just about perfect: Gift of Gab talks circles around your head, and Chief Xcel's beat is marvelous, built on a heavy, rich drum sample with a beautiful space and ambience to it, decorated with distorted psychedelic guitars and amusing little blips of synthesized trumpet.
