    "mother's day" is the most fucking amazing song ever. i originally heard it sampled in "the end credits" by wale, and searched for so long to find out the original song.

    I love this album. Of course, I first knew about the group from the long-ago sample from Eric B & Rakim's "In The Ghetto", but listening to the full album it is pure genius. Poor peoples' advocacy will never die.
