The Answer to Spot The Sample 1

I asked you guys if you could find the sample behind LL Cool J’s single “Loungin’ ” featuring Total earlier this week. Much to my dismay no one found the source.

But a friend of mine (Hey Jess!) correctly guessed the sample for the album version. She gets some E-brownie points for that but in today’s economy her winnings add up to $Nada.99!

Anyway, Trackmasters got the sample from the beginning of Bernard Wright’s “Who Do You Love.”

This song was Bernard Wright’s biggest hit (and his only video I believe.) Wikipedia, among other sources, tell me he grew up in NY as a talented keyboardist who played with Funk legends like Tom Browne and Lenny White in his teens. He recorded his first album, ‘Nard, at sixteen and his label waited until he became more recognizable as an artist two years later to release it. His debut dropped in 1981 and didn’t make waves sales-wise but heads consider it as a funk classic.

“Who Do You Love” was a single Wright’s third album Mr. Wright in 1985. Trackmasters just added some bells and whistles for the beat and raked in the dough. There isn’t anything wrong with that as they made a summertime banger.

I knew I saw the video before as I remember the “rolling camera” used in it. I think it’s a really dope shot. It also  shows that you don’t need a million dollar budget to get some nice effects in your flick.

Well that’s it for this edition. Keep it locked for another sample challenge coming soon.
