The Beasties are at their best when they bring a lot of energy, which is exactly what they do here. For the whole song, they just trade energetic rhymes and it sounds dope as hell. The beat, however, is the main highlight of this song. I mean, that flute loop...so good. "Sure Shot" is just an all around stellar track. It's easily one of my favorite Beastie Boys songs. It's one of those songs that I can hear in my head just by thinking about it.
