I know that I promised that we'd explore only James Brown Hip Hop samples in the month of June, however with Q Tip coming to town this Thursday and all the excitement here at the station around that, I felt I had to give you a little Q Tip sample this morning.
Q Tip's newest album " THE RENNISANCE" dropped earlier this year, and it's a breath of fresh air! Q Tip has always been one of Hip Hop's most consitent MCs. This new project is no exception to that. Check out this new single produced by the late-great J DILLA.
That's an obvious sample huh!?! But I truly love the way Dilla flipped the track to have a new meaning.
TOTALLY EXCELLENT DUDE!!!
Here is the original J-5 version!
