Answer to Spot The Sample 3

Brigitte Bardot

I might as well drop the bomb now before I forget. The samples (vocal and instrumental) on “Meiplé” came from Brigitte Bardot’s “Moi Je Joue”: french for Me I Play. You see what they did there? That ain’t the worst of it. Just listen to the source material. Continue reading ‘Answer to Spot The Sample 3’

Spot The Sample 2! Consequence feat. Kanye West and John Legend “Whatever U Want”

Whatever U Want

Consequence feat. Kanye West and John Legend – Whatever U Want (mp3)

This joint was one of my favorite songs of the summer. What’s crazy about it is people may overlook the fact that Martin Louie snuck a sample in there. It’d be TOO EASY to ask what person he sampled. So I decided to up the ante and ask yall what song did ‘Ye get the song from? Google it out and get to work.

In other news Hype Williams shot the video for this song last month so It shouldn’t be long until it pops up on a screen near you…

Spot the Sample! LL Cool J’s Loungin’

Loungin

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.

DWYCK – 17 Years Later…

Dwyck is one of my favorite DJ Premier tracks ever. The beat is simple, catchy and knocks all the same. There’s no hook and it actually works better that way. It makes the rhymes stand out more and sets it apart from so many songs from that era. Plus the video had some bad girls in it and there’s nothing wrong with that.

It’s Good To Be a Pac Div Fan These Days…

Pac Div 2

There’s nothing like the feeling of seeing an artist/group you follow grow from e-hype to mainstream praise. Pac Div ain’t exactly mainstream yet but they’re well on their way.

Kidz In The Hall

What does it mean to be successful in rap: a slew of classics, multi-platinum sales, the adoration of fans worldwide or perhaps a mixture of each?

Download The Warm Up Here

This cat’s been getting some buzz for months and I kept turning my attention elsehwere. So when I saw that his latest dropped this Monday I decided to see what all the fuss is about. I didn’t know much about dude other than he’s from North Carolina and he’s the first Roc Nation signee. I don’t know the specifics behind the deal but he had to have impressed Hov to get that big cosign. I tried not to get gassed but I knew he had to have something special to get noticed by one of the greats.

Death of Autotune…Really Hov??

D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune) by Jay-Z

So Hov dropped the bomb (D.O.A. – Death of Autone) last Friday and cats have been buzzing nationwide. I like the song and I felt like something of this magnitude had to be done. As he explained on The Angie Martinez show Monday he’s not saying cats like T-Pain are wack. Instead, he’s challenging artists to try something new and innovative with their work: namely their melodies.

Still you have to wonder if Jay is as much of a threat as he was, say even five years ago, to people’s careers. A lot of heads make their daily bread on cranking the plugin up to 11. Plus it’s not like the radio and DJ’s have suddenly stopped playing Ron Browz’s and DJ Webstar’s records.
