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 usually don’t talk about my life on here because in all honesty it’s not that interesting. But today was kind of odd. I could’ve sworn I went back at least 10 years with Doc Brown. It was an interesting array of events along with a soundtrack to match. Here it goes.

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?

Yes that’s the first pic of her on google. So what? (Heroes season 2 and 3 spoilers ahead!!)
ANYWAY, I caught wind of this fine woman while watching Season 2 (disappointing by the way) of Heroes.

I don’t watch a lot of TV outside of sports. Thing is, I mainly follow basketball and football in that order. So the summer is pretty much catch up season on shows my friends constantly tell me to check out.
Lately I kept the netflix queue on point so I don’t feel out of place at the cooler. I’ve been on my NBC to do list and got caught up on the office earlier this month. Now, I’m engrossed in the first season of Heroes. I tried the first ep out back in December but I wasn’t feeling it. I gave it a shot again and ended up watching 3 or 4 straight shows after that.

When I heard the news yesterday I didn’t want to believe it. I thought cats were joking or something. Then when I heard cats blast michael jackson songs in midtown it started to set in.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I played Thriller on the way back home and thought about what happened. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Thriller is the best pop album ever made. I mean Off the Wall and Bad are great but Thriller is his magnum opus. Not even the lame duet he did with Paul McCartney could deny it’s legendary status. It’s one of my favorite LP’s ever and it’s one of the first I ever listened to front and back.

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.
