Song Of The Day - "Cissy Strut" by The Meters

This 1969 instrumental is practically ground zero for all of Rap and Hip Hop tracks. It's the essence of songs like this Allen Toussaint-produced classic that informs the genre with its groove and beats. The Meters were formed by Aaron Neville as a backing band for some of New Orleans' greatest acts like Chris Kenner and Lee Dorsey.
