That’s My Jam #8: Craig Mack and friends, “Flava in Ya Ear” remix

Ever want to punch someone when the latest crap pop dance single spins and said person screams, “That’s my jam!” This series is about reclaiming that phrase from tasteless wankers.

I remember seeing the video for this on MTV in the lobby of my college dorm and stopping in my tracks. LL was the all-star, Biggie, Puff and Busta the up-and-comers and unknowns Craig Mack and Rampage hold their own against the (then) future legends assembled. Maybe the best posse cut of all times, and it includes what might be the best opening line of any track in the 1990s, via Biggie: “Niggas is mad I get more butts than ashtrays.” Play at maximum volume and clear some space to get funky, because that’s what happens when you’re getting mad flava in your ears.
