Gotta keep this one short and sweet… I’m swamped with work right now kids.

Seems like Creative Control is at it Again. Wasting no time getting back to business… Curren$y make sure he stays in the hip hop  music scene after the release of his first album “Pilot Talk”  by quickly releasing the new mixtape  “Pilot Talk 2″ for the fans. I’m already 5 tracks in and I’m loving this as much as his Official Album.  Go ahead and click here for the download. You need that.

 

Meanwhile, Stalley starts his ascent into Hip Hop Stardom with his video dedicated to the New Orléans Corridor titled “Babblin.” Set to an AMAZING Bobby Hutcherson  jazz sample called “Montara,” (also used by The Legendary Roots Crew for “Mellow My Man”) random appearances by Jay (I just got signed to Roc Nation) Electronica, and a visual landscape that reminds you of the real state the NO is STILL in… there’s just a whole lotta win involved with this video. And you should watch.

 

 

Babblin':

Dont forget the Bobby Hutcherson original. Because the original always kickass:

Enjoy.

Folsom Street Gangstas. They have more in common than you think.

Pointed out to me by the Legendary @MattMelvin (you continue to BLOW my MIND), and found on Tumblr, it looks like someone took the amazing that Johnny Cash, and mixed it with the Eternal Gangsta known as Eazy-E. Perfectly titled “Folsom Prison Gangstas,” the track mixes Cashes “Folsom Prison Blues” with Eazy’s “Luv 4 Dem Gangstas.” Blended much better than I initially thought it would be,  DJ Topcat sounds like he hit the Fruity Loops program to perfectly blend the right guitar chords and country lyrics with E’s well written gangsterisms.

You can listen and download by clicking here, then check the awesomeness that had to combine in order to create the win this new win before you.

Please, use that awesome tweet button I added to the page… and spread the joy.

Summerjam Alert and Sample Appreciation Post: Joanna Newsom | The Book of Right-On = The Roots | Right On. Praise Musical Jebus.

 I’m not going to say a whole lot on this, because I have intentions on giving this album a full blog, based on the overwhelming amount of awesome that has come from it. But I do want to say this. I’ve talked about Joanna here previously. Shes great. But I never thought I would hear her in such an amazing format, with an amazingly done sample done by The Legendary Roots Crew. And I don’t know how you could flip her voice, being that she’s got one of those special tone, nasally, folksy sounding songs. But they did it.
Harps and Hip Hop. The sh*t needs to happen more often, frankly.

A lot of people are frankly freaking out on who Joanna is and where this sample came from, so this is where I like to step in and help out a bit.

This is where it all starts… The Book of Right On from Joanna’s 2004 Album, “The Milk Eyed Mender.” This is the awesome live version done on Jools Holland.

That must have caught someones attention in the Roots Crew (probably ?uestlove), which let to the awesome flip you have below.

Honestly, one of the best songs on the album. The most upbeat of the songs on the album, and most accessible. Who woulda thought you could make Joanna Newsom accessible. lol.

Please Enjoy. And go buy this album. BUY IT. STOP DOWNLOADING. You seriously need this in your life.

Sample Appreciation Post – Pitbull: "Calle Ocho" = Nicola Fasano & Pat Rich: "75 Brazil Street" = The Bucketheads: "The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind)" = Chicago: Street Player. Oh Yeah.

Since they came up with the original, they get the default photo.

Wow. I love twitter. Why? Because I can always log on, bring up one cool song, and have my network of amazing nerds point out a bazillion different things about this one song that I never knew. Most of the time, I forgot the song even existed. (LOL)

Which leads us to the beginning. While mentioning my appreciation Afro/Afro-Latin Beat samples in hip hop, and using the Sample done in Pitbull’s “Calle Ocho” as example (shoutout to Wale and “My Sweetie” also), it became painfully obvious to me that I was not aware of the name of the song sampled for the Horned out chorus sequence. From there, A great friend (hey @Jtronic) quickly pointed out that the song is a direct sample of an awesome House song from 1995 called “The Bomb!” (by “The Bucketheads”) I had almost forgotten how cool this song was up until this point. Good save, J.
Now just when I thought the fun was over, @RyenDavid points out that this song is ALSO a sample of ANOTHER song called 75 Brazil Street, which is a song that Pitbull mentions in the beginning, but I never caught onto until now. Done by Nicola Fasano and & Pat Rich, this also contains a sample from “The Bomb”, Linking all three together.

WAIT.
Then theres this awesome version of Street Player done by Chaka Khan and Rufus that Mom pointed out. Its the most covered song ever.

But were STILL NOT DONE! (lol)

After digging even further, I find out that ALL of these songs circle around one main theme built from a Chicago song called Street Player. Recorded in the early seventies, and supposedly a hard vinyl to find,   Street Player seems to be the source of all three songs, built into one awesome jazzed out rock jam.

Sampling EPICNESS.

Geek out, find the links, have fun.
