Wait A Milli...

Lil' Wayne's "A Milli" is already a huge hit as the big single from his new album The Carter III, but not many people know where the bones of the beat come from. But first, here is a breakdown of how it was done... [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DMWVxVWeos&eurl=http://somuchsilence.com...

Now the beat to the song is sick, but I want y'll to know A Tribe Called Quest was the one he got it from. While diggin' I found a blog called SoMuchSilence where I got some of this post, namely the knowledge that the Tribe track comes off a remix album called Revised Quest for the Seasoned Traveller. And the song in question is I Left My Wallet in El Segundo (Vampire Mix). Oddly enough, the remix is from Norman Cook, go figure! I even found a freebie of it for ya!
