96. Brand Nubian, "Slow Down"
An Afrocentric crew who rapped about not dating crackheads were hardly natural stars. But Brand Nubian were so good they made it seem like a sure thing. Producer Sadat X couldn't get the "what I am" refrain from Edie Brickell's 1988 hit to fit an Ohio Players drum break, so he brought a vocalist in to sing it, not that anyone noticed.
