Let Me Clear My Throat

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: DJ Kool

Recorded live, hip-hop oddity ”Let Me Clear My Throat” gets its power not from studio samples but from the sweaty intensity of an audience. By reducing rap to its basic elements — slamming grooves, call-and-response routines, and a head-bobbing human beat box (courtesy of guest Doug E. Fresh) — DJ Kool adds new spice to old-school rap flavor.
