Sorry about last week’s absence of “Connect the Crates.” I was locked out of the studio unfortunately.
But here I am today! And I’m playing the songs sampled by the wondrous RZA of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan!! RZA is known for fusing gritty soul samples with gritty drums, that are then rapped over by gritty emcees from the New York borough of Staten Island AKA Shaolin.
A couple must-listens – “I Like It” by The Emotions – sampled for “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” by ODB. Also check out “As Long I’ve Got You” by The Charmels – sampled for “C.R.E.A.M.” by the Wu-Tang Clan.
See you next week!!
