Dilla Month for February 5th (Yesterday was Friday) and Saturday February 6, 2016.
“Dooinit” is from Common’s fourth album Like Water For Chocolate in 2000. The track that J Dilla produced with the sample of Rick James “Give It To Me Baby” joint was crazy. Common held it down for the verses like “N***a you wack”. Dope scratching hook tho.
I love this song “The Light”. I love the drum breakbeat and the original sample of this joint. Common was the man in 2000.
Yesterday I didn’t post a Dilla Month because I have nothin’ to write.
This afternoon I heard this track on Music Choice. The joint is called “Hold Tight” by Slum Village featuring Q-Tip. That song was absolutely dope with the drum break sample and stuff. Off of Fantastic Vol. 2 released in 2000. The Abstract, Dilla, T3 and Baatin ripped it. RIP Baatin and Dilla Dawg
Alright the song I really like was The Pharcyde had their flow in it and the Beastie Boys voice sample saying “Drop” was hella fresh. I know every song that Dilla produced like this. What I like about the video was the special effects with backwards and stuff. Spike Jonze is a genius.
I was even 8 years old when this song came out. I seen it on MTV, The Box and VH1 channels. A Tribe Called Quest released their fifth album titled “The Love Movement” in 1998 so I had bought the CD from Target. I really like this song. The track was produced by The Ummah which made up by Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jay Dee who would by the name of J Dilla. Good jam though. Like the sample too.
Bonus: Towa Tei “Technova” (Original Sample of “Find A Way”)
“Stop” is one of my favorite J Dilla’s beats from his classic instrumental album Donuts. I love this song. He took Dionne Warwick “You’re Gonna Need Me” (same sample as Usher’s Just Blaze-produced cut “Throwback” from 2004 album “Confessions”) and Jadakiss’s voice sample and made the heck out of the chopping beat. Dope.
Bonus: Dionne Warwick “You’re Gonna Need Me”
RIP Sean Price and J Dilla. 9th Wonder, Just Blaze and Dilla Dawg bodied the sample.
Hello everyone, this is Justin (you can call me Jus or Jay which is short for Justin). I’ve been busy as a bee because I was out of blogging focus. I ran out of the ideas for the blog post. Death’s been arriving in this year with the passing of David Bowie, Paul Kantner, Alan Rickman, Abe Vigoda, and now Signe Anderson (the original lead singer of Jefferson Airplane).
There’s a lot of things that kept me busy is watching tv, playing Criminal Case and stuff like personal life. I was stuck in the writers block because I ain’t got nothin’ to write. January is over now.
During the MLK weekend I stayed home and did nothing. I didn’t go to the movies, go out for a walk and shxt. Mother Nature makes everything worse for the coldest weather. I’m waiting for Spring and Summer to come so I can go outside and play.
Today is February 1st so it’s the 1st of tha month like what Bone Thugs-N-Harmony says in the song. I got many thing coming up for the blog “THB Files” with more songs, videos, photos and stuff. I need to make more lists and come up with a lots of topics.
Happy Black History Month, February 1st and Dilla Month everyone!
