Over a funky laidback beat, a young Will Smith does a fantastic Rakim impression over a sample of Kool & the Gang's "Summer Madness" and drops a sweet ode to hanging out and driving around his native Philly: "Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes/She turn around to see what you beeping at/It's like the summers a natural aphrodisiac." It's still hip-hop's finest summer celebration.
