Well if you were lost on the Special Ed post, you might wanna skip this one too. OK. Up in the Bronx where the people are still fresh, was a group called the Ultramagnetic MC’s—Kool Keith, Ced Gee, TR Love and Moe Love. Long story short, they were kinda a big deal. One of the most influential groups of the 80′s/early 90′s. If you haven’t heard their classic debut, 1988′s Critical Breakdown don’t make eye contact with me when you see me on the street. Ha!
Anyways, the one that started it all was their second 12 inch vinyl which features “Ego Trippin’,” the song that currently serves as the backbone of Amerie’s new banger. After seeing so many kids screwing up the info of who the author of this song (Fearless Four?) was and the title (There’s another song called “Funky”), I felt compelled to share a smidgen of my infinite knowledge. Also included is the “Substitution” break from which they helped craft this gem. Yup everything comes from something.
