Pete Rock’s Half Man Half Amazin’
Sample Sunday 017

This week features my favourite Pete Rock records, including his work with InI, C.L. Smooth and Method Man.

Sample Sunday is a Hip Hop music show where my girlfriend, Rhian, hears a record that’s been used as a sample in a Hip Hop record and then has to guess what Hip Hop record it was used in. If I play “Between The Sheets” by The Isley Brothers, Rhian would have to guess “Big Poppa” by The Notorious B.I.G., for example.

3 Feet High & Rising De La Soul Samples

De La Soul is the main reason I got into Hip Hop, and certainly my first step. De La Soul’s Three Feet High & Rising was the soundtrack to my childhood, specifically between the ages of 3 (as far back as I can remember) and 6. In 2019 and 2020 De La Soul have been...

Simon Says GET THE F*** UP

Pharoahe Monch is easily one of my top five favourite emcee’s. His use of Soul music, mixed with witty, intricate and often dark lyrics make his music an easy go-to any time I’m stuck for ideas. His album “W.A.R.” is by far one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever...

Love J Dilla [Dilla Month!]

Dilla is, hands down, the greatest artist for me. Since discovering him at the age of ~15, I’ve never gone a week without listening to at least one record featuring or produced Jay Dee. Whenever I’m bored of music, I always switch back to listening to some Dilla. The...
