Name That Sample #7: MJ Edition

Sample Map

[Edit] Congrats to Ron for the correct answer! The MJ song is “With A Child’s Heart” off the album Music & Me, sampled by Big Punisher’s “You Ain’t A Killer” produced by Young Lord.

I think it’s only right we partake in paying tribute to Michael Jackson by including one of his songs for this version of Name That Sample.

See if you can name the original MJ song and album in addition to the hip-hop song that sampled it.

Good luck!

Vintage Wu-Tang Freestyle

Wu-Tang

With Wu-Tang Clan’s Chamber Music dropping todaywhich RZA notes is “not a Wu-Tang Clan album – but it’s pretty close,” I dug up this vintage Wu freestyle from ’93 on Stanford, CA radio station KZSU.

Though only Method Man, Ghostface and Masta Killa hop on the mic, it’s a lesson in what constitutes a true cypher – not a BlackBerry-assisted pre-written “freestyle” that we see too often today. This is right around the time of “Protect Ya Neck” and Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), so you already know the caliber of rhymes to expect.

Download the freestyle below to show the children what real hip-hop is and pick up your copy of Chamber Music here, Enjoy!
