    I know this song got popular after the Paralympics in London but it is weird to see it getting more plays than songs like Fight the Power and Don't Believe the Hype, week after week.

    Assumed that these guys faded away from their days of greatness after the slack Music-n-r-message back in the 90s - never heard this before - and this is cocking genius

    This is an incredible song on so many levels. Further evidence as to why Hip Hop is such a beautiful artform- M.F

    End of Watch, from the first second I heard the beat I knew 'd be listening to this for a while. Sick film and a really sick song.
