4)Doug E. Fresh & Slick Rick – The Show

Song: The Show

Album: Oh, My God!

Year: 1986

Let’s see here…

  • Teddy Riley produced this just a few years out of puberty. He’s from Harlem’s St. Nicholas projects where I still have family by the way.
  • He replayed the Inspector Gadget melody and made it into boom bap
  • All of the noises and beatboxing Doug E. Fresh did, the trading off of raps with Slick Rick was dope
  • Without this song, the aforementioned “Cant Stop The Prophet” remix wouldn’t have been the same
  • Without this song “Party And Bullshit” wouldn’t have been the same
  • Without this song Slum Village’s “The Look Of Love” wouldn’t have had that “Word, Rick?” part after “no need for that I get down with raps, just say word”
  • Without this song The Pharcyde’s “Return Of The B-Boy” wouldn’t have existed, period
  • It was done in a studio and made to sound like a live show, complete with Doug E. Fresh’s epic outro (“as you can see, most definitely, WE ARE (fresh) CHILL WILL, (fresh) BARRY B…”

Basically everything about this record won and still does to this day.
