Ever wondered where that scratchy voice saying “f-f-f-rrreeeesssshhh” on every second ’80s rap record actually originated from? Or who originally sang the chorus of Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock? Look no further…
"At number 7 we’re back to the breaks with the easily recognizable “Long Red (Live)” by US 70’s blues-rockers Mountain. Aside from the popular drums-only breakbeat (a notable favourite of none other than the late, great J Dilla), the call-outs to the crowd on this live recording have been sampled many times. Check the intros on Nas‘s “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” and A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Jazz (We’ve Got) (Re-Recording)” for some classic examples. Dilla’s “Stepson of the Clapper” from his legendary album “Donuts” is almost an ode to the break itself, and well worth a listen, and Kanye Westkept up the tradition by using the sample several times in the last 4 years.”
"This video is for all of you stupid fucking trolls and haters online saying mean and hurtful things about fedoras. Well guess what they rule harder than you, dipshits."
God, Lena stop “doing trolling.” You’re spouting hatred out of your keyboard that probably isn’t even mechanical.
