    Summertime
    Jump
    Can I Kick It

    add on. you know the ones

    If you DJ it's one thing, but if you don't do you ever play them or still like them? Did you ever like them? For me it's cool if you hear them in a non-rap better-than-nothing context (shit radio station, wedding, sub par bar/club, etc) but I'm guessing no one here gets home and throws these on, or has them on the playlist for the morning commute. I don't play out anymore so have little use for them but my collection would seem weird without them.

    Own them all and wouldn't want to part with any of them... I was expecting Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer from the title!

    Insane in the brain

    It takes two
    It’s like that (remix)

    Trying to think of tracks that would get played at a party by a generic “cater for everyone” dj as opposed to all ultra famous hip hop songs like CREAM etc

    And to awnser couple of your questions I used to like all these songs but got tired of them all from over hearing them , although if I’m wasted at a festival or something (rare) I might bop along to some of em still like a twat... certainly wouldn’t play em at home or commute unless i was figuring out a remix or reworking of the track etc
    I do own most of them on wax I agree it would feel odd to not have them

    Be good to have a definite list on here of all these tracks

    ^^^ I own all these on 12". Only song I've actually played recently is Summertime - put it on the jukebox in my local a few weeks back.

    Push It - got it on 45 , I would play at a bar gig or party.

    Walk This Way - I hate this song

    Summertime - got it on a 45 , I would play at a bar gig or party.

    Jump - Kriss Kross? Don’t own it, quite like it.

    Can I Kick It - have on 45 and have played out

    I would rather hear any of these songs than T.R.O.Y, Jayou, Ante Up or Scenario.
