Samples Get No Enemy

Today’s 7 o’clock sample pays tribute to the late great FELA KUTI!

Fela’s legacy continues to inspire younger and younger generations. The themes explored in his music continue to strike a chord in today’s modern times. His life has been recently brought to broadway by Jay-Z and Will & Jada Smith in the show FELA!

This morning we took a look at one of my favorite Fela songs, from his album EXPENSIVE SHIT.

You’ve gotta spend a little time with this song to find the sample, but about half way through, I heard this keyboard part, and said to myself…. “I’ve heard that somewhere!”
This is where…

This is from INI’s 1995 project with Pete Rock called CENTER OF ATTENTION.
Great album, great samples, what else could you ask for?
