As most of you I’m a fan of Scholars Souled on Samples series, I know there are a lot of heads out there that know every fucking sample premier has ever flipped, or at least they claim to and there are a whole lot more people who are more into this than me. It was only when I first got a record of the “premo collection” and first listened to the Meters “Funky Miracle” and Marlena Shaws “California Soul” that I realized that through hip
hop I could discover more great music I couldn’t enjoy due to my age or where I was coming from or whatever..
So here’s a compilation of a bunch of my favourite samples , pretty much all classics, so most of the people who are into this should already have those mp3s in their collection, basically you will most of the times immediately be aware who used this or that track. So it’s nothing hard to find and you don’t need to be an expert to find out where this is coming from, well some (let’s say most) tracks I grabbed from the souled on samples series anyway… haha.
Travis also already pointed out on the previous post that Scholar dropped a new one. I don’t know how you feel but I’m pretty much enjoying only those one’s I’m immediately recognising, I think Eric from WTR also did a couple of series influenced by the souled on samples, so guys keep up with that stuff…

On a side note, for the Digital Underground fans who haven’t noticed, I think Shock G is updating his website. This might be due to their new release or something, so for those who still don’t got it, get their free “The Lost Files” album which is already up there for years, but which could be down in a minute, who knows…
