BACK IN THE DAY |1/18/05| The Game released his debut album, The Documentary, on Aftermath/Interscope Records.
As another week comes to a close, we know it’s our duty to drop another batch of fresh playlists for you to add on. This week, i’m proud to announce that a friend of the site, HL from the terribly underrated, Lattisaw Tapes is our first guest contributor to #SpotiFridays. This week, he put together some really dope lists, one which we’re sharing this week and a couple for the stash. (Trust. He cooked up some next-level ideas.)
On another note, It’s only a matter of time before some higher-profiled, better trafficked site comes along and pulls a jackmove of this idea of showcasing lists on a weekly basis, but until then, we’ll continue to bring you the dope shit. However, if anyone is interested in curating some lists and submitting them, or making suggestions of ideas we could build off. Do it.
Rap Samples Jazz by Thomas Michael Chavarria
Jazz-influenced samples are the fifth element of Hip Hop and TMC did an amazing job compiling this list of sample source, and then the song that it’s sampled from. It’s only right on Herbie Hancock’s birthday to let this list fly.
Paul’s Boutique Samples by Chip Maxwell
Only a month away from MCA DAY 2013, I wanted to build some awareness to the dope event that’s been going on, so i thought it was only right to post this tribute to possibly one of the most-creative, best sampled album in all of Hip Hop. Debate Me?
The Game 101 by Harold Stallworth
There’s no question as to the celebrity of The Game, but often his artistry is put into question. For his first contribution to #SpotiFriday, HL put together this list of 50 (see what he did there) Game joints that will turn any Jayceon hater into a fan. Black Boy Fly.
Get Yo Drank On by Brad McCormick
From Old Gold and Colt 45 to Ciroc and D’Usse, Hip Hop has always had a fascination with getting its drink on. From $2.50 cold 40s to $500 champagne bottles with sparklers in it, rappers have forever been caught with a drink in their hand, and this list is the 151 proof truth.
Tribes Vibes: ATCQ Samples by Yours Truly
Earlier this week, Q-Tip celebrated his bornday, and i put together this Tribe-Sample selection. It’s not all the samples, nor is it the best samples, but it was something that i put together to pay homage to The Abstract.
