OLD SKOOL VIDEO SPOTLITE - De La Soul feat. The Jungle Brothers, ATCQ, Monie Love, and Queen Latifah - "Buddy (Native Tongue Decision)"

This is the best remix ever. EVER!!! De La had a lot of great songs, but this is my favorite by far. Everybody from the Native Tongue crew showed up to make this a special video. There is a lot of finger-snapping and laughing, but that adds to the charm. They are just clowning around as if they were shooting a home movie. It's like one big inside joke. I like the big dude running in the street says "This video makes no sense!" I agree! We also get a lot of earth tones, funky haircuts, and African patches! I used to have like three of those patches back in the day. This was off the group's classic debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising. That album offset a lot of the Gangsta Rap that was coming out in the late 80's/early 90's. De La Soul was innovative, inspiring, and made great music. Gotta love it.
