I got ants in my pants, and I don't believe the hype!
It's time for another 7 o clock sample! Since we are celebrating the EVOLUTION OF HIP HOP all this month here at 88NINE, I figured I'd take this month to explore hip hop's favorite sample source; The Godfather of Soul, The Hardest Working Man in Showbizness, Soul Brotha #1...JAMES BROWN!
SEVEN O CLOCK SAMPLE presents... The James Brown Samples! There are SO many examples of the use of James Brown in Hip Hop, that I could maybe even do this for an entire year! From day one, Hip Hop culture has had a deep love affair with James. His music can be directly linked to Hip Hop dance, culture and music even before the first rap records were recorded. Today I decided to take a look at how the fellas in Public Enemy used some of the godfather's music. PE had no shortage of James Brown samples, so I randomly plucked this one out... DON'T BELIVE THE HYPE
