Brand Nubian - Love Me Or Leave Me Alone
"You gotta understand, I'm a man that needs fulfilling. And if you ain't with it somebody else is willing."
Before he was making headlines for calling white people "guests" in hip-hop, Lord Jamar was asking for approval of his own. A single off of Brand Nubian's acclaimed In God We Trust album released in 1991, "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone" has reached iconic status in the hip-hop game, being referenced in everything from films to Jay Z's "Public Service Announcement" in 2008. The single itself cracked the Billboard Hot 100 and helped bring the group to mainstream radio.
