    A track from the group's debut album, there are just two verses in the lyric; Q-Tip takes the first one and Phife Dawg does the second. Phife, who was just 19 when he recorded it, in later years said that he had a hard time listening to his verse because he didn't like the way his voice sounded back then - he thought it was too high-pitched. Here's the official video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3pyCGnZzYA

    In a 2011 interview, Phife Dawg explained that the group has never received royalties from this song because of the Lou Reed sample. Phife Dawg is thankful he let his group use "Walk on the Wild Side," but he was disappointed that Reed didn't spread the wealth.
