Watch this high school band play an ICONIC Bay Area rap song

In 1995, one of the Bay Area's best selling songs of all time was released by the Luniz.

I was just finishing up 6th grade when I heard it for the first time (on Hot 97.7 - the South Bay's Favorite Radio Station! - anyone else?) and clearly remember thinking, "This is the coolest song I've ever heard."

1995 was the summer of "I Got 5 On It" - it was EVERYWHERE.

24 years later, it's getting the high school band treatment. I realize watching this that some of the songs I played in high school band must have been just as exciting for folks a few years older for me to hear. I wonder if we played any with subject matter similar to the Luniz.
