Life is all about choices… Jawns come in various ethnicities (Black, white, yellow, Puerto Rican or Haitian). You can choose to sell dope or go to school. You can even choose to stay home on Saturday 9/6 or join the rest of us for Philly Loves Native Tongues at Johnny Brenda’s! As Dres from Black Sheep would say, “The Choice Is Yours!”
There’s lots of songs that come to mind when we think about Hip-Hop posse cuts (Juice Crew’s The Symphony, The Firm’s Affirmative Action and Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s Get Money are a few off the top), but Jungle Brothers ”Doin’ Our Own Dang" featuring A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and Monie Love is definitely one for the books! Songs like this defined originality and knowledge of self for a generation, and let listeners know that there was an entire movement happening. Before Scenario, this was the Native Tongues anthem!
