M.O.P. & Busta Rhymes – Ante Up

I’ve just been flicking through the crap that makes up Saturday TV when I came across one of these interminable ’50 Best (insert genre here)’ shows on 4music. Except that this particular show was being presented by our next Prime minister, Dizzee Rascal, and was made up of the best team-ups. Being Dizzee, it has a hip-hop bent, and when he played the remix of M.O.P.’s Ante Up which features Busta Rhymes, it  almost had me jumping up & down on the sofa.

Yeah, yeah, yeah (or something)!

And if, like me, you couldn’t stop wondering what the horn sample in Ante Up is taken from, it turns out that it’s from the Sam & Dave track Soul Sister, Brown Sugar. So now you know!

UPDATE: I’ve just been sent this rather wonderful mash-up of old footage of Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street and Ante Up. Puppets in da hizzouse!
