Ay Yo!

Melanie & Quest

My not-so-secret crush Melanie Fiona and ?uestlove were supposed to drop their collab mixtape WQST Radio Presents: Melanie Fiona Meets The Illadelphonics (A Live Remix Jam Session of The Bridge) a few weeks ago, but it’s nowhere to be found yet.

Luckily, we get this nugget to hold us over until the full tape drops. Here’s the audio for my favorite the best Fiona song, the reggae-infused vocal showcase “Ay Yo” backed by the Illadelphonics.

Props to Legend for the heads up, Enjoy!

Name That Sample #8

Name That Sample

I’ve been meaning to post this one up for a while, as it’s one of my personal favorites. Much thanks to the lovely April Rose for the inspiration.

Can you name the original song and artist plus the sampling song and producer?

Hint: The portion I’m looking for pops up after the 5-minute mark.

Best of luck!

Name That Sample #8

[Edit] April is (half) right! While Ivan (of course) got it all right. The orig is Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman,” sampled by both Kanye West for Talib Kweli’s “Get By” and Timbaland for ” Oh Timbaland.”

Til next time, Peace!
