Sometimes the right folks get their props for absolutely the wrong reason. Chill Rob G is probably remembered most for "The Power," that ubiquitous cheerleader anthem with the refrain, "It's getting, it's getting, it's getting kinda hectic!" When Snap illegally lifted Rob's a cappella for "Let the Words Flow" for their Eurodance hit, his label sued and then released its own version without Rob's involvement. (That version is on this reissue, ironically without the original Loleatta Holloway sample.) But make no mistake, when it was released in 1989, Ride the Rhythm was well ahead of its time. Chill Rob G's stentorian voice put him on par with contemporaries like Chuck D while his dense rhymes anticipated next-generation rappers like Organized Konfusion. Ride showcases gems like the classic "Court Is Now in Session," a gripping tale of racial profiling. Here's your chance to check out the real artist. Don't sleep a second time. --Jeff Chang

""Motivation" "I'm shootin' my mouth. Cause suckas are shootable. I'm flauntin' my rhymes. Cause I'm black and it's beautiful." That was all it took for me to realize that Chill Rob G was Lyrical master. I personally put him behind Rakim and KRS-ONE."
Court is NOW IN SESSION!!!
