De La Soul — "The Magic Number" (MUSIC VIDEO).
De La is MIA (missing in action, not chillin’ with Will Smith) in this video for “The Magic Number” that utilizes the “1-2-3 Mix” by DMC Champion DJ/producer Chad Jackson of the UK. Graf representations of Plug 1, 2, and 3 act as fill ins while teens dance their collective asses off.

The Italian Job vs. De La Soul (VIDEO).
We’ll be the first to admit that pitting the De La classic with elements from the beloved 1969 British heist flick The Italian Job is more random that the quiz show questions on 3 Feet High and Rising. But the magical combo of a pervy Benny Hill cameo, Mini Coopers running amok, and Sir Michael Caine and his mates singin’ the Quincy Jones-produced “Getta Bloomin’ Move On” (bka “The Self Preservation Society”) blended with some Plug Tunin’ makes this a real treat. Give this one a go and see if blows the bloody doors off, so to speak.

Schoolhouse Rock vs. De La Soul (VIDEO).
Since the original song borrowed from the vintage kid show soundtrack (amongst other sources), this third and final vid incorporating Schoolhouse Rock only makes sense.
