Behind The Beat Part 4 (9th Wonder Edition)












Back again with another installment of the Behind The Beat series which showcases original samples used in Hip Hop.  This time around I decided to focus on the brilliant ear of 9th Wonder.  9th has been one of my favorites pretty much since Little Brother's The Listening dropped almost 10 years ago.  Since then he's went on to producer for everybody from Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Ludacris, and the list goes on and on.  So here's a selection of some of my favorite tracks produced by 9th Wonder paired up with the original sample.  And as always please give my podcast 5 stars on iTunes.  Thank you.

SoulQuarian Soul (A Tribute To D’Angelo)


D'Angelo is without a doubt my favorite R&B artist of this generation.  In every sense, the man is a true artist.  He's the total package.  I remember hearing an interview from the late great J Dilla and he was speaking about how he can play, but the way D'Angelo plays is just out of this world.  On a talent scale you wouldn't be far fetched to compare him to Stevie Wonder.  He's just that good.  If you watch his live performances you'll hear not just women but grown men just losing it to every chord he plays.  The music and the vibe he has is just packed with so much soul and feeling that is almost unmatched in the genre.  The craziest part is that he hails from my home state of Virginia which makes me very proud.  He's been touring and working on his latest album last year but had to cancel shows due to health reasons uknown.  Which is what led me to making this tribute mix.  Hope the man is ok and will continue to bless us with his remarkable talent.

One Time For L-Boogie


Few artists in the Hip Hop world spoke to your soul the way Lauryn Hill does. Even though she hasn't dropped an album in over a decade, she's still as popular and legendary as ever.  A lot of the kids coming up now really don't understand the impact she made in the late 90's.  Here's my tribute to the extraordinary talent of Ms. Hill.

The Best Of N.E.R.D. and The Neptunes

IMG_1574.jpg

This is a mix I did in collaboration with the good people from The Art Of Reuse in Toronto.  They're opening their online shop so this mix was made to coincide with their web launch.  The extremely talented artist Sean Brown asked if I'd be willing to do a NERD/Neptunes mix.  Of course me being from VA thought that was a great idea.  I know the Neptunes discography very well so I knew I'd do justice with this as well as represent for my home state.  Everybody knows the story of Pharrell and Chad and the impact they've made on Hip Hop and Pop culture.  Definitely makes me proud that arguably the best producers in the last 15 years along with Timbaland are from my city.  So I dedicate this to all my people in Virginia Beach and all of Virginia.  Bang this all Summer.  And as always hook up that 5 star rating in iTunes.

Welcome To The Row

DRow.jpg

The Death Row era was a crazy time in Hip Hop. Mostly remembered by the violence and controversy surrounding the label, but lets not forget the classics they produced. Dr. Dre definitely made the blueprint to what the sound was and definitely wasn't the same after he left. What I remember most about this era was that even though the music was street, there was still a lot of soul within the music. On top of that especially with the Dre and Snoop connection the records were still about having fun and partying and not always about the gang banging. So here's my little tribute to this era of Hip Hop. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Beats By Just Blaze

Just Blaze definitely made his mark in the game. As one of the marquee producers on Rocafella, Just Blaze along with Kanye brought soul sampled beats back to the forefront on the classic Blueprint album. Just Blaze went on to produce for just about every big name from Mariah Carey to Nas to Rihanna with an incredible run of hits that's still going today. So here's my personal favorites by this dope Producer/DJ.

Always been a big AZ fan.  While the world still hangs onto the possibility of a Nas/AZ collaboration album, here's some classics by the Brooklyn legend to help build that anticipation.  As I made this mix I couldn't help but realize that to this day only a handful of artists in Hip Hop today are even on this level.  Witness greatness and enjoy.
