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’

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…

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.

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.
