Jay Dee & Proof a.k.a. The Funk Cowboys (part of 5 Elementz)- “Searchin” 1998
Pete Rock & CL Smooth- “Searching” 1994
This is very, very close. If you’re familiar with my tastes you know who I’m leaning towards. There’s two factors to consider when deciding.
- Pete Rock did it first
- A crisper version of Dilla’s can be found here
