    Sounds like Black Sheep - The Choice Is Yours. I never really listened to rap, but my girl- friend at the time, who was seven years younger than me, was caught up in that phase. She used to sing that song a lot when it came out...it was one of her favorites. She gradually out grew that phase. One time I let it rub off on me, and went to my job when I was a guard, singing verses to that song...and the fellas looked at me like I was a fool. That was the first and last time I went to work singing rap.

    Anyway, to me that part of the song you mentioned above have a similar beat.

    I hear James Brown and Parliament all through most of the song, especially the music, however the part he was asking about that played from 1:54 - 2:04, still sounds like a little of Black Sheep - It's Your Choice, especially at 1:03 of Black Sheeps video when they start repeating, "You Can Deal With This, or You Can Deal With That". To show how little I paid a attention to rap, I thought that was the name of the song.

    It sound like he also copied a little of the style from Roxanne Roxanne by UTFO. It sounds like they all used to copy a little rhythm from James Brown, Parliament, and even DC's Go-Go beat. Coming from the DMV, we also called it the DC Groove, the DC Beat, then Chuck Brown sealed the deal with Go-Go, the one who started the beat it in the first place.

    You know it's something how the older generation can easily see were Rap copied from R&B. Then at the same time, the generation before mine could see were R&B copied from Ray Charles ect...,which most in my generation couldn't.
