The GREATEST Hip Hop Producer of ALL TIME
Sample Sunday 013

Everyone knows I love J Dilla, and so should you! Unless you’ve never heard of him, in which case please let this be an educational video.

J Dilla has produced classics for Janet Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, Dwele and the Pharcyde. J Dilla was innovative and used a plethora of samples, including the ones featured in this weeks Sample Sunday. These samples became the following songs:

Watch, play along and see if you can figure out which song came from which sample!

Sample Sunday is a Hip Hop music show where my girlfriend, Rhian, hears five records that have been used as a sample and then has to work out what came of the original record. For example, “Move On Up” by Curtis Mayfield became “Touch the Sky” by Kanye West.

If you would like to listen to the songs featured in Sample Sunday, be sure to follow “JB’s Sample Sundays”. The playlist's available on Apple Music and Spotify. It’s updated every Sunday with the playlist from these Sample Sunday videos, so you’ll always be able to find some of your newly discovered favourites ☺️.

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...

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...
