One…two…three…four, hit it!
This week on Connect the Crates I decided to zero in on one drum break that has been sampled a whole bunch of times – the famous ‘Funky Drummer’ break by James Brown.
Today I included songs by LL Cool J, Biz Markie, Eric B. and Rakim, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and Maestro Fresh Wes.
Tune in next week for some more sample/rap fun.
Also – shameless promotion time. You likely don’t know that I’m a rapper/beat maker myself. My stage name is MisterE. I have an album called ‘Dusting For Prints’ and people say it’s good. Find out for yourself at:
