The Whatnauts

The Whatnauts - Why Can't People be Colors Too?

The Moments featuring The Whatnauts - Girls

The Whatnauts - Soulin With The Whatnauts

The Whatnauts - Help Is on the Way

I first discovered The Whatnauts after hearing 'Why Can't People Be Colors too,' which has a drum break used on many classic hip hop songs. After digging deeper into their catalogue you'll see all of their albums are pretty bangin' with a lot of good material for samplers. The group experiments with a variety of genres, ranging from disco, soul, and funk.

The Whatnauts and Stang label mates The Moments recorded 'Girls' dedicated to the ladies of all shapes and sizes (one of my personal favorites). 'Soulin with The Whatnauts' is the song used for Mike Zoot & Tek's 'Midnite Run', produced by Mr. Walt. Fans of De La Soul will recognize 'Help is on the way' as the track used for 'Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey).'
