Change in Speak

Album: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)
  • This song blended the horns from the Mad Lads "No Strings Attached" and the syncopated drums from Cymande's "Bra." De La Soul's Posdnous recalled to Rolling Stone: "There was a record I found that had a whole bunch of great songs from the Mad Lads on it. Then we just decided to put the 'Bra' song from Cymade on it, we just started mashing things. We all worked together really well as a foursome, just trying to add different things."
