Many moons ago you could find the kid hammering away on some ivory keys over a tune he couldn’t give a care about. I knew I had musical talent growing up since playing piano wasn’t that difficult and the sax was even easier. But I never truly applied myself b/c other things (and distractions) were flat out more fun. Continue reading ‘Brushing Up On The Piano…’

I checked this song out on TSS over the weekend. Then I heard it in the car on Hot 97 yesterday. Then I realized someone upstairs must be sending me signs to do another Spot The Sample post. Either that or it’s just one eerie coincidence after the other.
Now that that’s out of the way, here goes the latest sample challenge. This is probably the easiest one considering I gave a clue on where you can find it. And with that I just made the search that much easier for you. My thoughts on the song? Jay-Z’s face in the pic pretty much sums it up although I do like how the vocal sample was used on the hook. All in all the song isn’t terrible but it’s just not for me I guess. Anyway, get ta huntin’!

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.

Apparently you guys like Hov all of a sudden. So if that’s what you want, ask and ye shall receive! Allow me to hit you up with some vintage Sean Carter in this post.

Cam’ron – Welcome to New York City feat. Jay-Z and Juelz Santana
I think I shoulda started out the week with this song haha. Anyway I went to some more meetings, hit up Sirius, and got a tour of CNN. I’m still tired as hell but at least I’m done for the day.

Long story short it was BS. If that was ANYBODY ELSE they wouldn’t have given dude a T. It just shows that a bad reputation precedes you in life no matter what you do to fix it. The brawl happened FOUR YEARS AGO. He’s been straight for the most part since then. Let it go people.
