Name That Sample #15

Name That Sample

Haven’t had one of these in a while, let’s get it going again.

Can you name the original song and artist? Also, which song samples this?

Big shouts to Thomas from Kevin Nottingham’s spot for the inspiration.

Hint: One of the best hip-hop producers of all time flipped this for a special collab.

Good luck!

Name That Sample #14

NTS #14 

Let’s get it poppington this morning with a lil’ Name That Sample.

You know the deal, tell me the original song & artist plus the sampling song & producer if possible. Shouts to Hurricane I for the sample set, it should be an easy one for him!

Hint: It’s a song from a Wu-Tang Clan member, on (in my opinion) the second-best solo LP from the Wu. Bonus points if you can guess my favorite.

Good luck y’all!

[Edit] Congrats to the homie CtrlAltMalik for guessing the sampling song Raekwon “Criminology” off Only Built 4 Cuban Linx produced by the one and only RZA. The original is The Sweet Inspirations’ “Why Marry.” Peace!

Lucky number 13 on deck, see if you can guess the original song and artist along with the sampling track.

Hint: This is one of the best songs of 2006, hands down.

Good luck!

[Edit] Congrats to Ms Rose for guessing correctly. And E-Rich, that sounds like it could be the same sample, yes. The original I was looking for is Sharon Cash “Fever,” sampled by Just Blaze for Ghostface’s “The Champ” off Fishscale. Thanks for stoppin’ thru!

Name That Sample

This edition of Name That Sample is on the tougher side (although, my readers never cease to amaze me all the time with their knowledge). See if you can name the original then the artist & song that sampled it.

Hint: The sampling song is by one of hip-hop’s most prestigious golden era groups. Also, I saw them perform at Rock The Bells Jones Beach NYC last year. I’ve said too much already..

Best of luck!

[Edit] Shouts to CtrlAltMalik and beewirks for correctly answering this one. The original is Ian Dury & The Blockheads’ “What A Waste” flipped by Ali Shaheed Muhammad for A Tribe Called Quest’s “Can I Kick It?” .. Yes, you can!
