Here we go with the third installment of the sample sample series, as you may already know these joints are in most cases not too hard to find and everybody should at least already know the rap tracks where they are being used in, well I guess so..
We got some classic tunes again, like the melody of Biggies hit Juicy, or the unforgettable sample by Leon Haywood which was used by Dr “detox is coming” Dre.
I also added the two original sources of both “new” singles by Jay-Z and Nasty Nas, especially the latest getting critical reviews due to that Wordsmith guy, which was obviously all bullshit from the start..
Then we have that Ben Kweller track which has been used by Talib Kweli and which has not been cleared as far as I saw, but is that important anyway, I think that’s the only reason why mixtapes are still great for?
My favourites here are definitely the “dear diary” sample and the Bobby Womack track entitled “Accross 110th Street” which I heard for the first time when watching Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown”, honestly I searched at the-breaks.com only to find some rap tracks which had used the track so I could include it here, haha!
