Red Foo & Dre Kroon "Life is a Game of Chess" (1996)

...you've got to be four moves ahead - no more, no less.

This cut was just f*cking cool. Who calls themself "Redfoo"? Or "Dre Kroon"? And if you're going to put out an underground hip-hop single, you sure as hell can't have some guy singing all over the second verse...right? This was some shit you just couldn't categorize too easily:



There's two versions of "Life is a Game of Chess", both of which are extremely dope. The original is bouncy as hell, and features extended, uh, "Krooning". The remix is a different song in every way except the concept; the rhyming is a bit more intricate, but it's still got the extended singing, which usually is a bad thing...but here, it's ill. Anyone know what happened to this crew? I know they had at least one more 12" ("The Freshest", with Evidence), but beyond that, never heard from 'em again. This upload includes both versions of "Life is a Game of Chess", as well as the instrumentals.
