This song is awesome. This video is awesome. And the Beatnuts are awesome. I'm not even sure I can explain why. They fit in that tradition of east coast hip-hop stretching back to "Top Billin'" where the lyrics aren't particularly complicated, but something about the energy of the track just propels you.

There's always been a surrealist aspect to their music--I think about that interlude on their album where it's just a dude crooning, "Be proud of who you are!" 

I don't know. More erudite heads can do better than that.  If you're looking for a great Beatnuts album, I'd go with Stone Crazy. You get the first recorded appearance of Big Pun. But you don't get the awesome Greg Nice's cameo.
