Simon Says GET THE F*** UP
Sample Sunday 031

Pharoahe Monch is easily one of my top five favourite emcees. 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 created and “PTSD” doesn’t fall far behind, at least in my book. Rhian and I really enjoyed creating this episode - we had a bit of fun singing along to the classic “Simon Says”.

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...

Love J Dilla [Dilla Month!]
