Fat fucking beats pounding, a serpentine groove and everything but the afros for the first release by Chicago crew The Chosen Few. To complicate matters for future discologists, the sample chorus on this one is actually by another “Chosen Few”, a funk group whose most famous track (sampled here) was “We Are the Chosen Few”. You might have caught it on Pete Rock and DJ Keb Darge’s Funk Spectrum III compilation. This one is significantly more up-tempo with signature Terry Hunter production beats while retaining that fat’n’dirty ’70s P-Funk horn riff and sexy styling.
