You can hear elements of "Hard Times" by Baby Huey in the Tribe classic "Can I Kick It?" and numerous other hip hop cuts over the years (Ghostface and Diamond D to name two) so it's little surprise to see it picked up by the Originals series. However this 45 offers a slight deviation from the label's successful formula, as instead of a hip hop banger sharing space with baby Huey we have the late '60s track that actually inspired "Hard Times". Penned by Curtis Mayfield, and sung by Gene Chandler, "In My Body's House" makes for a comparatively upbeat soul cut replete with a blinding breakbeat that will have the sample fiends out there very excited indeed.
