I’m launching a little series called Spot That Sample! The rules are in the title pretty much. All you have to do is check the music above and spot the source material.
Today’s entry features LL Cool J’s “Loungin'”: one of the singles off of Mr. Smith back in ’96. Trackmasters were behind the boards on this one and Al B. Sure! of all people helped out with the lyrics. My best guess is he helped write the hook. Then again if you ever heard the song they sampled they didn’t change much.
I was 9-10 when it dropped and it’s one of my favorite LL records. The sample isn’t too hard to find. Still, check youtube if you’re stumped. And with that hint I pretty much gave it away.
I’ll post the source material in due time. But for now do some digging. It’ll keep you busy if you’re loungin’ at work.
