The Covid era has been beneficial for music. Not only have people realized they can record anywhere (even more than before), they’ve also become more knowledgeable about music as a whole. Maybe it was Verzuz Battles, maybe it was boredom. Either way, we’ve been able to rediscover a lot of great music. Enter Five Fingers of Funk, a ten-piece live hip-hop band (a la The Roots), whose “We Were Big in the Nineties” featured the group’s original line-up. That’s pretty damn awesome–especially when you’re coming with bars like these. If you’re intrigued, check out the homage-heavy video above and support dope music in all its forms. This is the first song off the group’s upcoming Portland Say It Again LP, due out in May 2023.
