Best. Sample. Ever.

I'll correct that-- this is my favorite hip-hop sample ever. The song that Toomp (the guy that made the beat for 'What you know') took the bassline from is "Gone Away" by Roberta Flack, but I believe it was originally a lick written by Donny Hathaway. And he used it a couple times before that. He knew it was just that good.

Gone Away - Roberta Flack, click on the link to listen to it. It's an amazing song but if you wanna skip to where the sample is then go to a little over half way.

Gone Away

And now for my favorite jam of 2006:

What you Know - T.I.


131 days till T.I.'s free. Party at my house march 28th!
