Public Enemy No. 1 [Gods of Rap Edition]
Sample Sunday 025

As you may already know, we’re going (or rather, have been) to Gods of Rap featuring Public Enemy, De La Soul, DJ Premier & Wu Tang Clan.

Last time I told you how DJ Premier was a big influence during my teen years, but my very first “proper” foray into Hip Hop as a teen began with Public Enemy. I have to thank GTA San Andreas for my discovery of PE, with their radio station “Playback FM” featuring some great East Coast Hip Hop, presented by none other than Chuck D. One of the records featured was “Rebel Without a Pause” which of course makes it in this weeks Sample Sunday.

3 Feet High & Rising De La Soul Samples

De La Soul is the main reason I got into Hip Hop, and certainly my first step. De La Soul’s Three Feet High & Rising was the soundtrack to my childhood, specifically between the ages of 3 (as far back as I can remember) and 6. In 2019 and 2020 De La Soul have been...

Simon Says GET THE F*** UP

Pharoahe Monch is easily one of my top five favourite emcee’s. His use of Soul music, mixed with witty, intricate and often dark lyrics make his music an easy go-to any time I’m stuck for ideas. His album “W.A.R.” is by far one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever...

Love J Dilla [Dilla Month!]

Dilla is, hands down, the greatest artist for me. Since discovering him at the age of ~15, I’ve never gone a week without listening to at least one record featuring or produced Jay Dee. Whenever I’m bored of music, I always switch back to listening to some Dilla. The...
