Back then when i used to listen to rap, i didnt care how the beat was made or what they used to make the beat. All I wanted to do is jam out and get my rock on. But as I got older and really started paying attention to hip-hop's other aspects, my inquisitive mind wanted to know other things. Like who produced this? What machine did they use? Whats a sample? How they make the beat sound like that? There are people out there the same age as me and really dont give a damn about those type of things, they just listen to the beat and the artist and thats it. Kinda sad if u ask me, especially if they dont know what a sample is or how the producer came up with that beat.
So i know my people that ride wit me on this blog is hip to this aspect of our music right? U can recognize a sample and what record it is right? If u listen to a certain sample right now, u can name the record that used that sample right? U sure? Ok then... prove it! Down below is a sample mix i put together myself. If ur so hip to samples and know ur hip-hop like u say then can u name the hip-hop songs that used these samples while listening to this? Ok, dont speak about it be about it!! In the comment box below lets see where ur knowledge is at! For some of the samples in this mix i brought it back 2-3 times so u can hear it clearly cause some of them are really quick and u gotta catch it.
I know some of u might search the internet for some of the answers and i cant catch yall doin it. But thats shame on u if u dont know some of these joints straight up! Ok people, have at it!
