While 'Flavor Of The Month' wasn't a smash hit outside of hip-hop circles, it showcased their approach perfectly - sinuous rhymes, clever wordplay and a hint of flirtation. If the drums sound familiar, it's because it's the same Joe Farrell break - the intro to 1974's 'Upon This Rock' - that Kanye West later used for 'Gone'. Add in some horns from Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass and you've got a funky little earworm. They return to the same Joe Farrell well for the flip, 'Butt... In the Meantime', because if the break isn't broke, don't fix it. Previously unavailable on 7", this brace of 1991 sureshots is the perfect introduction to the idiosyncrasies of the Native Tongue era.
