Souled On Samples Part XXI

What's crackin', soul kids?

As my Auntie Peaches always says, it's hotter than a three-balled tomcat outside. She may be a silly-ass toothless alcoholic, but she can be pretty nice with the metaphors nonetheless.

Sheeeeit...even Erykah Badu couldn't talk my ass into a pair of crocheted pants on a scorcher like today. It's about 3000 degrees and that shit don't make Common Sense.

Anyway, I switched up the format a little bit this time to keep things fresh and to give everyone an opportunity to hear how one producer flipped each original song. As always, feel free to drop further knowledge or links in the comment box if there's anything you want to add.

A'ight then---no matter how high the heat index rises, you crazy fools try'n keep those heads cooler than a fan...

Word From Your Moms:

“Nothing does reason more right, than the coolness of those that offer it: For Truth often suffers more by the heat of its defenders, than from the arguments of its opposers.”---William Penn

Do you happen to have the You Can't Front beat, the one from the What U Heard EP? I've been searching for it for ages. Cheers.
