De La Soul - "In the Woods"

If I had to pick a greatest De La Soul album, I would probably go with Buhloone Mindstate, although any of their first three records is worth considering for that distinction. Remember when hip-hop used to feature female vocalists who didn't just sing the chorus hook? There are many fine songs I could have picked off the album, but I went with "In the Woods," in part, yes, because of its inspirational line that's such a great kissoff to "hardcore" rappers.
