Yaggfu Front "Left Field" (1994)
All Music Guide tries to describe Yaggfu Front as somewhere between Pharcyde and Das Efx, and it's not a bad effort. The production (the remix wins, naturally) is simultaneously jazzy and spacey, while the lyrics are irreverent and honest:
When will she stop this brother stuff?
Hookin me up with girls that look busted, and rough
that run with the crew thinkin that I wanna screw
Why in the hell would I want her unless she looked as good as you?
Like "Passin' Me By", each verse is delivered by a group member detailing their failure with women. Hardly inspiring, but you can't help but nod your head (uh, maybe "shake" would be the better verb), and finish feeling sympathetic - or better about yourself. If you haven't heard this, do yourself a favor and grab it...missed the 12" back in '94, and finally ran across it in a random bin in Tokyo last year. Includes the original, remix, and instrumental.
