The Fugees – Family Business (1996)

A classic slice of mid 1990s hip-hop taken from The Fugees’ second and final LP “The Score” released in early 1996. This was a real golden era for hip hop with the Wu-Tang Clan and all of their side projects releasing records every few months it seemed. For clear evidence of the truth of this, check here for Genius’ all-time classic 4th Chamber.

A typically fantastic performance from Lauryn Hill alongside Wyclef Jean. Fire and Rain by James Taylor gets a quick namecheck and the underlying melody is a simple loop from the early parts of Recuerdos de la Alhambra composed by Francisco Tarrega in 1896 (check here for a nice version).
