Jungle Brothers - Done By The Forces Of Nature (2LP)



"The Jungle Brothers’ 1988 debut, Straight Out The Jungle,
was important for many reasons. It was sloppy and goofy
but had moments of real focus and social consciousness. It
was a true “kitchen sink” record, that caught a rap fanbase
enraptured by Eric B. & Rakim, Public Enemy and Boogie
Down Productions a bit off-guard. Also of note, beyond the
excellence of the album itself, the Jungle Brothers were the
fulcrum for what would become the Native Tongues
movement – they came first, De La Soul and A Tribe Called
Quest followed, under their guidance.
By 1989, the group had even more confidence, plus a
Warner Bros. contract and advance in their back pocket.
They used it to great advantage on the self-produced and
criminally underrated Done By The Forces Of Nature,
expanding their sonic palette and continuing their
Afrocentric approach to music and life. Singles like “What
‘U’ Waitin’ 4” and “Doin’ Our Own Dang” (with De La and
Q-Tip, alongside Monie Love) showed the group’s fun side,
which has also lead the way in the “hip-house” movement.
But things weren’t all fun and games, as deeper, more
pensive album tracks like “Black Woman,” “Beeds On A
String,” and “Acknowledge Your Own History” show. It was
another accomplished mix of fun, frolic and
knowledge-of-self, proving that you could be serious in the
rap game but still let off steam and fill the dancefloor.
Done By The Forces Of Nature stands as one of the most
cherished hip-hop documents of the late ‘80s among
true-school heads, and this edition is the perfect way to
revisit this classic thinking-man’s (and woman’s) rap platter.
Issued for the first time ever on 2-LP with the original
picture sleeve artwork, it also comes with a reproduction of
the original insert, with credits and lyrics."
