    Bink!




    - for me, this is in the top 10 of most underrated WU songs. killer beat from Math which embodies that classic "WU sound" that everyone recognizes as soon as they hear it. i personally love the way WU producers do sped up super-looped soul samples.
    this joint is THEE perfect example of, not only what hip-hop is, but MCing also. (if someone came down to earth from another planet & asked "what is hip-hop?", i'd play this joint for them!)
    3 of the greatest MCs talking about MCing & being an MC from 3 different angles! i also love the format WU has perfected of 'verse-verse-verse-verse...' and NO hook.
    this joint is just STRAIGHT SPITTIN'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i give it a 9.5 b/c i think the only thing that could make it better is if it were longer; possibly 2 verses from each MC.
