Brooklyn Sampled

by Tarik Moody

It's all about Roy Ayers this week on the Seven o'Clock Sample.  

In 1972, Roy Ayers Ubiquity released the album He's Coming, featuring one of Ayer's most popular songs " We Live In Brooklyn Baby".

 

 

This song has been used by many great acts from The Digable Planets, DJ Shadow and Kendrick Lamar.  Today we looked at how Mos Def used this sample on his song "Brooklyn".
