This week on the Seven o'Clock Sample we are exploring the music of Zapp and Roger Troutman. Roger's influential synth funk helped to define west coast hip hop.
In 1992, West Coast Rapper Paperboy had a big hit with his track "Ditty"
The album was certified gold by the RIAA on June 22, 1993, and "Ditty" was certified platinum on May 11, 1993. The main melody for this song, comes from the Zapp song "Doo Wa Ditty".
