Seriously. Who knew hipster white kids were so awesome with samples and beat making? The more I dig up on them, the better these kids get.  Check This Out:

Not only is their new video for the song fairly awesome while stepping on some lines and pushing some boundaries…

…it really is a nice sample they chopped up right quick.

Just wanted to point that out right quick, if no one else has already.
Enjoy.

Lupe Fiasco Samples Modest Mouse. This is the kind of stuff I'm into.

Seems like I’m late to the party just a little bit, and I’m trying to play catch-up. The more it circulates and the more I read around, I see that it is catching a lot of criticism from people who do not like the way that Modest Mouse was sampled, and then there are the old crotchety music nerds that just don’t like it when two different genres collide. I, on the other hand, don’t really give a sh*t about all that and usually endorse and support epic moments where two completely different forms of music combine. Popping up as MTVJams newest “Jam Of The Week” and finally catching my attention, Lupe’s latest single, “The Show Goes On” is a tribute to charging forward in trying times… like right before a major show. I’m not so much intrigued by the song so much as the sample and usage of Modest Mouse’s “Float On” in the song… He just happened to pull out one of my favorite singles from one of my favorite albums. Kudos for that.

Watch below, and enjoy.

Sample Appreciation Post: Erick Sermon | Music = Marvin Gaye | Turn On Some Music

with 4 comments

Marvin = Epic

 Sound: Well Produced, Well Sampled, Boom Bap Hip Hop.
Album: Music (2001)
Sampled From: Marvin Gaye “Turn On Some Music” | “Vocal Sample of  ‘I’ve Got My Music'”

Why?
It’s the hip hop music junkies anthem. He says it within the first verse of the song… “I wish Music could adopt me.” Yep. Just about explains it all.
On a detailed, amazing flip of a Marvin classic, Erick does what he does best… tells you the story of the life of the Music Nerd. Expressing his adoration for the art of hip hop, the elements and history, and the power music has to unite all people of all colors and creeds. Great hip hop music. At this point, this song is almost 10 years old, and still plays like its brand new. I was lucky to be at a listening party for this album years ago… and snag a Promo CD for the album where he goes into detail about the new album, and some of his past hits. The story behind “Music” and how it was made is almost as good as the song itself (click here for the download).

The Sample: Turn On Some Music

This, and the Original Vocal Instrumental of this song were what we’re used to make this awesome win of a song.
I mean, the lyrics within themself is enough reason to keep this song on repeat.
“‘Cos music’s been my therapy
Taking the pain from all my anatomy
Oh and my anatomy
It’s my symphony, always stay with me
You know that the world ain’t right
Baby, lots of people stay uptight
I’ll go crazy
If something ever happened to my musical thrill
And darling your love is just like my music.

Music is the soul of the man
Music makes a happy day
And music makes the clouds go by baby
Your music keeps my tears inside my eyes
Your music makes me want to sing
Girl, music is a joy to bring
Music is my heart and soul
More precious than gold

Happiness today is just a song away…”

Coming with that “I usta love H.E.R.” type of metaphorical writing, Marvin combines his love for the ladies with his obvious obsession with his art… Music. No one does it like this anymore. I wish more people would.

Enjoy, dammit.

Mixtapes and Videos – Curren$y: Pilot Talk 2 (Mixtape) | Stalley: Babblin' – Music Video (Epic Jazz Sample). Links:

Jets, Fool. #Prioritize

 

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.
