De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest may have been more commercially successful, but the afrocentric, jazz political rap movement and unfadeable Native Tounge Massive started with the Jungle Brothers and their 1988 debut. “Straight Out the Jungle” opened up many doors that are walked through by artists like Mos Def, Common and even Kanye West. Their taste for jazzy horn samples helped kick-start the entire jazz-rap movement, and their James Brown fixation was one of the first. Plus, the group’s groundbreaking collaboration with legendary house producer Todd Terry, “I’ll House You,” paved the way for numerous hip-house hybrids that shot up the dance and pop charts over the next few years. For Cassette Store Day, this legendary debut is presented by Get On Down as a double cassette issue - one cassette is red and the second (containing the full instrumentals from the album) is green. Both cassettes are housed in an attractive full color slipcase emblazoned with graphics from the original cover art.
