Meka’s Soul Mix Show: Mathematics

blame it on JES7 March 31, 2010

Sample breakdown for my personal favorite Mos track. I think we can all agree that we need a Mos Def x Premo collab, but that’s more wishful thinking than Detox dropping in the next year or so. I mean whatever happened to the NaS x Premo collab that was in the works, like I read in that prestigious XXL article? Anyway, the main sample is by The Fatback Band (up top), “Baby, I’m A Want You.” Enjoy and do your math (Peace to my fellow NGE!) All scratched samples can be found below.
