Crosby, Stills, Nash and B REAL?

This week on the Seven O Clock sample, we continue our exploration of the music of Summerfest.

The world’s largest music festival kicks continues today on Milwaukee’s lakefront, so I thought it’d be smart to look into some of the samples we may hear tonight.

Headlining the US Cellular stage tonight, is Hip Hop trio and rap legends CYPRESS HILL!

Cypress Hill just released, Rise Up; their eighth studio album. It is their first album of new material in six years, following 2004’s Till Death Do Us Part. This album features production from their DJ, MUGGS as well as Pete Rock, Jake One and Jim Jonsin. Jonsin produced their newest single, “Armada Latina'” which features Cuban rapper Pitbull and Puerto Rican singer Marc Anthony.

That’s a JAM! There is no doubt that is also a familiar and well-known sample…. Where is it from?

Well if you guessed it… It’s Crosby, Stills, and Nash. From their self titled 1969 release, here is Suite : Judy Blue Eyes.

(fast forward to 7:10 for the sample)
