Song of the Day: Wu-Tang Clan - Gravel Pit

Despite naming my blog after a Public Enemy song, I'm not a big rap/hip hop guy*.  If it was released after 1996, I probably don't know it.  That said, I really don't know Wu-Tang's music all that well - I have the debut - but something compelled me to buy the 12" single for "Gravel Pit."  I don't know if I heard it beforehand or what went through my mind when I purchased it, but I'm glad I did, because it's definitely one of the best hip hop songs I know (see: caveat).  Why is this song not more popular?

* In case you're wondering, Public Enemy and Beastie Boys are the kings for me, though I also listen to and enjoy De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z, Blackalicious and others
