Funk Friday: “Concentration,” Quantum MC’s


This song is so wacky.  (Then again, it was 1999.)  It’s gotta be the most mild-mannered rap song I’ve ever heard, layered over a tight rhythm and feel-it-in-your-bones baseline.  I recommend starting any conversation with, “Yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah…oh yeah.”  Also, this has got to be the only song written ever, in any genre, that uses the lyric “flowing like soy milk over sweetened cereal.”  Quantum MC’s were a great group that included two favorite artists of mine – Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow.  I find that I tend to start the song fairly soft and then crank it by the time it gets to 3:37.  What-what!  Happy Friday, Tune-Up Fans.
