Rennie Foster certainly knows about this, cutting his teeth with a Hip Hop group in the early 90s that spawned several Swollen Members. One of them being the legendary emcee, Moka Only, the featured voice on the track, a rapper with his own board on Skull Skates and an unprecedented DIY spirit. His verses on this are clever and tough, as if being on a house track required extra skills, no dance rhymes here, and no censorship either.
The MK inspired organ riff hint at Rennie Foster's strong connection to Detroit, a place he calls a spiritual home base and found a strong fanbase, releasing on many Detroit labels and working with the motor city's most classic artists. Moka hint's at this in his lyric "Create a new tribe and assemble them, from the Vancoo to the shores of Michigan", and then in the middle of spitfire verses, the song becomes a classic west coast deep house jam, with Moka's warm and genuine singing in that style. Few artists could combine to create this sound.
