OG Style- Catch â€˜Em Slippinâ€™
Great track from a great album, he even says â€œweâ€™ve been waiting on this break for a long timeâ€. Clever. I always hears â€œwhat about the doubtersâ€ as â€œwhat about the downloadsâ€. Even before they invented them. Double clever.
De La Soul- Potholes in My Lawn
De La also use the drums in Stone Age and Millie Pulled a Pistol on Santa (would have been seasonal) but here they use the piano yeah.
The Pharcyde- Ya Mama
Ghostface Killah- Mighty Healthy
Same break and some of the same lyrics as the next track.
Divine Force- Holy War
As interpolated by Ghostface (^this^). The best thing they did. Got this for 20p.
Ultramagnetic MCs- Ego Trippinâ€™
The oldest track on this? Probably. One of the best? Yes.
Frankie Cutlass- Boriquas on the Set
Fat Joe and stuff.
Biz Markie- Cool Vâ€™s Tribute to Scratching
Biz is also on De Laâ€™s Substitution sampling Stone Age. SIX DEGREES OF KEVIN BACON. Big Daddy Kaneâ€™s Just Rhyminâ€™ With Biz uses a bit of Substitution too. As does Looks Like a Job For.
Wu-Tang Clan- Clan in da Front
Rza and the Wu love this break. Because itâ€™s good.
Gang Starr- Code of the Streets
Primo with the substitution break. Also using one of my favourite scratch sounds.
Naughty By Nature- OPP (inst)
As heard in the summer of whenever. Yeah, you know how I roll.
Tony D- Adamâ€™s Nightmare
The beat that Naughty by Nature nicked. Another hip hop legend gone this year.
Public Enemy- Donâ€™t Believe the Hype
Reminds me of a 6th form ice skating trip. Oh how we laughed. PE like the break too.
Gang Starr- Dwyck
Primo again. You know the one. The lemonade one.
Prince Rakeem- Deadly Venoms
Pre-Wu Rza. You disagree with me, fuck you mister.
Def Jef- Black to the Future
Heâ€™s Def and his name is Jef. He did some alright tracks.
Nice and Smooth- Skill Trade
Just the piano again. Just little bits though.
Supreme Nyborn- Versatile Extension
Letâ€™s remix it. Booom
EMF- Rough Potential
Not that EMF but ^that^ EMF, Electro Motive Force. Incidentally I saw EMF (that EMF) supporting Boo Ya Tribe many years ago. Big boy riddims.
Schoolly D- Saturday Night
How the fluck did he get so cool. Could have also used Saturday Night Live by Masta Ace which uses large bits of the break, and has Premier on it. KEVIN BACON.
Choice MCs- This is the B-Side
Better than the A-side. Pianos and that.
Public Enemy- Brothers Gonna Work It Out (dub)
They did a track called The B-Side Wins again but this was an A-side. Weird. Could have included Miuzi Weighs a Ton too, if it would mix nice.
BTX- This Jam is Black
Super, a sprightly number from the great Select label.
DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince- Jazzyâ€™s Groove
Final track and cut short before Grover Washington Jr comes in just in case it provoked a facebook group to try to post a mix of shouty rap metal instead.
