OutKast – Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik: The Samples

 OutKast

Ivan and I were on a serious mission this weekend. After dropping this and this, we figured – why stop there? Why not bless the blogosphere and hip-hop heads with another sample set from the almighty OutKast?

Which brings us to the duo’s debut, 1994’s pimp-tastic Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

Way before Andre & Antwaan apologized to “Miss Jackson” or coaxed listeners to “shake it like a polaroid picture,” they had a smoke out in the Dungeon with Mary Jane, inspiring every pimp, playa and mack daddy in the Atlanta metro area to git up, git out and git somethin’.

Not only did Southern… introduce ‘Kast lyrically, it debuted Organized Noize Productions’ gritty, trunk-rattling instrumentation (that I wrote about in great depth at Metal Lungies’ Beat Drop.) 

The trio hand-picked specific samples here that run the gamut as far as influence. Reinterpeting bebop jazz pioneer Miles Davis’ “Savid” for “Ain’t No Thang,” The Notations “Superpeople” for lead single “Player’s Ball,” reggae-infused drums from Isaac Hayes’ “Joe Ball,” good ol’ American rock band The Eagles’ “The Window” for “Claimin’ True” and the ever elusive Eddie Harris song “Abstractions” for “True Dat (Interlude).”

Warning: Playing this set in your Cadillac will cause a funky ride. Oh, and players, if you choose it, you better make sure that you use it. Enjoy!

B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray

B.o.B.

Between Wale and now ATLien Bobby Ray a.k.a. B.o.B. dropping mixtapes within the past week, hip-hop is alive and breathing!

I’ve been waiting for B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray prsented by DJ Green Lantern & Don Cannon since seeing the preview videos floating around the blogosophere, and here it is! Though we only get a handful of new tracks to feast on, it’s cool having a comprehensive disc to copy to the iPod.

Of the XXL Freshman Class of ’09, I’ve continuously argued that B.o.B. has the highest potential and most overall musical talent. This tape should reiterate that sentiment.

Peep the tracklist and link after the jump. Thanks to WBLHH for the link and Gotty for the cover. Enjoy!
