On This Day: House Party Soundtrack Debuts Featuring PE
March 9th, 2017

On this day, Motown Records released the soundtrack record to the 1990 classic film, House Party, which featured one particular PE track off its list.

The list included “Can't Do Nuttin' For Ya Man,” a tune that orchestrated well with the film's comedic ethos with its party-jam ambiance and house-inspired production—no pun intended, by the way. To top that off, hip-hop's comic crown prince capitalizes with his trademark antics and playfulness.

In fact, the song kicks off with such an iconic hook, “Running for ya life (for the life!) / Running from ya wife (yikes!),” catered by the same man behind perhaps most prominent two-word phrases, “Yeaaaah Boyyyy!”

While the track showcased one among Flavor Flav's most energetic performances, the song's message also follows along the familiar recipes written in the classic PE cookbooks, with lyrics written towards empowering independence and social awareness among Afro-American communities and neighborhoods.

“Can't Do Nuttin' For Ya Man” first debuted in March 1990 when Motown released the soundtrack record. The track would later found a spot on the band's critically-acclaimed album, Fear of a Black Planet. It would eventually be released as a single as well, in October 1990.

Get your throw back going on with Public Enemy's “Can't Do Nuttin' ForYa Man.”
