" 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 ?
