" Samples Vs. Bands "



"I'm tired of rappers with live instruments on the stage / save that shit for parades...And while your at it why don't you dress like a clown / and draw yourself a permanent frown..

Rappers doing this should retire / niggas looking like Earth, Wind, and Fire"...

"Kiss My Black Ass"..MC Ren 1992.

I wouldn't personally word it the way the former NWA rhyme slayer did, but I understand his sentiments whole heartedly......Too many dudes forget that Hip Hop was built on the manipulation of breaks...Sometimes when you actually incorporate a band into the mix the results are lackluster..

For instance, Black Moon chose to rock over a band late last year to perform the entire "Enta The Stage" album.....There are a couple interesting moments, but I will choose rugged Beat Minerz production over the band scenario any day of the week...

*On a side note- I wasn't digging that Onyx & Biohazard collabo "Judgement Night" either...HAHA..

Am I alone on this one ? What do ya'll think ?

I agree Drasar. Not many could pull it off. However, Will Sessions did a damn good job on Elmatic. But at the end of the day- hard beats win.

WHAT UP E ?

HOW IS FATHERHOOD MY BROTHER ?

HAVEN'T LISTENED TO THAT ELMATIC SHIT BECAUSE I LOVED ILLMATIC TOO MUCH WHEN IT ORIGINALLY CAME OUT...

ELZHI IS DOPE BUT IN MY OPINION HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TRIED TO REMAKE A BONAFIDE CLASSIC....

ANYWAY HOPE ALL IS GOOD CUZZO-

To me the best is a combination of samples and live music. Look at JayDee, Ant Banks, Dre, etc...
