I don't know this song but I love their debut album "In Loving Memory Of" released back in the 90's. The singer even looked like Cornall a bit back then IIRC.

MIAMI—After the singer was charged this week with two new counts of engaging in prostitution with a minor, local music fan Daniel Allen admitted Wednesday it has been hard squaring his image of R. Kelly as a beloved abuser from the 1990s with the reality of him being a reviled abuser in the 2010s. “In my head, he’s still the R. Kelly I grew up with, the guy who wrote ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ and had already been sued for impregnating an underage girl,” said Allen, who confirmed he longed for those simpler times, years ago, when all you knew about the R&B artist was that he made great records and had demonstrated a well-documented pattern of predatory sexual behavior with children. “I have all these great memories of seeing him on TV back then, when he was accepting Grammys, appearing in groundbreaking music videos, and going on trial in Chicago for making child pornography. Now it feels like those memories have been tarnished.” Allen added that while he is horrified by Kelly’s crimes, there are a few songs from back in the day when everybody knew what the singer was getting up to that he still loves.

There are a lot of rappers who put out a lot of material and a lot of it is bad. This does not apply to Ghostface. He has avoided the proverbial wall with aplomb.

You can probably add De La Soul to this list, too.

Yeah, "In Loving Memory Of" is a fantastic album. The rest of their work, including Ian Thornley's solo album and his other band "Thornley" all have some decent tracks, but a lot of filler.
