This is the jam I tried to post last week, but then they took that shit down.

Super fresh.

Em, you got some Vt. roots have you ever hiked the mountain where the Projectors filmed the video for that tune? Just curious.

emily said...

no i haven't, but i would like to! i'm not super familiar with that part of the state.

That sample goes back to Dr. Dre as well. See "Chronic 2000" for its appearance on "Exxplosive." Also love the Badu "Bag Lady" remix. Props to Isaac Hayes' "Bumpy's Lament" for the original sample, circa 1971. Check it here:

Being friends with The Duke, you learn to geek on shit like this...

Roomie - Those ladies in the OG cut are straight out of a llama-infused Middle Earth. I think I saw Gandalf smoking pipe weed in the back of that video shoot. Seriously. Word.

Dudes if Driz and El Man post then this would be an APT hac (California Games Anyone?).
