Love Movement Intro - A Tribe Called Quest (featuring Mos Def)
Background Info (as told by Questlove):
day of mastering he took it off.
matter of fact he made ALOT of last minute off the cuff mastering choices that day.
-begged him to use the louder horns on "let's start" cause the OG version he wanted you couldn't even hear them joints to know that was the rhythm pattern he was following. the 808 was killing all the music.
-told him to fix the timing on "find a way" coming in from let's start so it had a similar relationship to the ending of "steve biko" to "award tour"---never got the timing right.
-i love abstract crazy sounding dilla like the next man. but the OG version of "against the world" coulda borderline a single.
but this intro yo.
man i was MAD MAD MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!
