This chant was originally performed by drummer Gene Lake on alto saxophonist Henry Threadgill’s album Spirit Of Nuff…Nuff [released 1990 Black Saint]. The composition is titled “Hope A Hope A”. This chant was mostly inspired by Gene Lake’s style and approach. I always found his style to sound loose. The cymbal part alone gives this Hip Hop chant a loose overlay. The doubles on the bell are key to that looseness.
