De La Soul ftg Mos Def, Xzibit and Pharaoh Monch- Stakes is High (JChan Pimpstrut Remix)

De La Soul has too many classics to count in one post – the original ‘Stakes is High‘ ranks right up in my top five faves of Native Tongue tracks – small wonder it’s been remixed by everyone from DJ Spinna and KDef to 9th Wonder and JDilla.

I’m still looking to get my hands on the acapella for the original version (if anyone has a link, holla) – in the meantime, here’ s my take on the remix featuring Mos Def and Enoll. Samples from Maceo & All the King’s Men‘s cover of Sly Stone’s “Thank You Falletin Be Mice Elf Again” and Cosumer Report’s “Go On With Your Bad Self.”
