Common talk deserves to walk, the situation’s changed
Everything said from now on has to be prearranged
The situation — or, the landscape of hip-hop as a sonic whole — truly was changed upon release of this track. It was very different than any other track at the time and is even credited with starting bass music by some.
Regarding the track starting bass music, T La Rock said, “There weren’t that many records out with that bass sound, which is from that Roland 808 … We were in the studio mixing down ‘It’s Yours’ and I just kept on saying, ‘More bass! More bass! More bass!’ … I just kept saying, ‘More bass!’ and the engineer was looking at me like I was crazy. Like, ‘How much bass do you want?!’”
