5 Borough Breaks delve into the history of hip hop and dig out another gem from the golden era, this time from The Bronx outfit Nice & Smooth, while the flip side serves up the original source of the main sample from their tune "Funky For You." It's from Parliament's "Do That Stuff" and it features plenty of flabby bass lines, sliding snares and vocal harmonies that will warm any soul. Nice & Smooth rework it into a more hip hop framework with great lyrical flow and a little more rawness and edge to the beats.
