In our never-ending quest to bring you the classic tracks behind our favorite hip-hop cuts, today we bring you the U-Roy and Hopeton Lewis collaboration “Tom Drunk.” It only takes a few seconds’ worth of listening to realize that the song’s best riff was long-ago copped by Reflection Eternal for “Fortified Live,” a tune notable for some of the ’90s greatest rhymes: To wit:
I’m sippin wishing well water imported from Pluto
That’s why my eyes is glassy, so ain’t got to ask me
The interplanetary Illuminati move your body
I trekked the stars first, so fuck Kirk and Scotty
So gather ’round, to hear the profound brown vomiter
Absorb the sonic energy manifestin through your monitor
