Every Tuesday and Thursday morning here on 88NINE, we explore the world of sampling. Regardless of genre, era, or style, if the song uses a sample; we break the track down and connect the musical dots.
This week on 7 o'Clock Sample, we are looking back to one of Hip Hop's most soulful sextets... Jurassic 5.
In 2000, J-5 brought Hip Hop back to a place, that so many of us, needed it to go. Beats, Rhymes, and FUN! This new sound was catching the ears of music fans around the globe, and Jurassic 5 were able to bring many back to Hip Hop again.
Their album QUALITY CONTROL, brought together the best of Old School Emceeing, Turntable Tricks and B-Boy Breaks.
As is evident in the song Money Bars.
This song features more samples sources than any good DJ could ever site. ( I'd be surprised if even Cut Chemist and Nu Mark could tell you all the records on this one. ) But I figured out a few...
Here is the main guitar loop...
From their 1974 album RUFUSIZED, it's Rufus and Chaka Kahn with "Somebody's Watching You"
Here is another interesting sample...
Ahh. That takes it back.
