Some more sampled shit

January 31, 2009

One of my favorite 2Pac songs, if not my favorite of all time, is “Bury Me A G.” The soulful synth loop that provides the song’s backbone was lifted from The Isley Brothers’ jam “For The Love Of You.” More recently, Murs sampled the same track for “Me And This Jawn,” a standout from Murs for President. All are dope:

“For The Love Of You”

“Me And This Jawn”

Two weeks ago, I spent an entire 2hr train ride listening to Biggie and Tupac. An overall great experience because I was reminded of why I fell in love with rap. So I decided it was only fitting to share my romance with you. The following songs need no introduction (last two do not have vids).

Tupac Shakur – If My Homie Calls

The Notorious B.I.G – Sky’s the Limit

Tupac Shakur – Bury me a G

The Notorious B.I.G – Going Back to Cali
