This week on the Seven O Clock sample, we are exploring the music of THE METERS!
There are VERY few gentlemen in this world as funky as Art, George, Joe, and Leo. These four men are responsible for an entire sub-genre of American R&B music. Their catalog spans 4 decades of Funky music. They've played with the best of the best, from Allen Toussaint, Lee Dorsey and Dr John. Today's sampler, A TRIBE CALLED QUEST. Ali Shaheed grabbed up some super funk to scratch the hook on this Tribe classic... [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B06e11-FiU] That funky hook comes from the Meter's 1970 release STRUTTIN'
