I enjoyed the rap. Also, it wouldn't have been as interesting had the Reni huff in Amsterdam hadn't happened. tbf to Ian Brown he was just as pissed off as the crowd and felt he'd been made a cunt of.It's more than a nod to Erik B & Rakims 'Paid in Full', which is a tongue in cheek nod to not being paid in 1989. I thought it was good myself and although I like Love Spreads on record, live I don't think it really works without the rap (I use that wording in the loosest terms) at the end. The best live version was the HELP! recording IMO and that was only good because the piano was different.
