After rocking out with Beat Butcha a few days ago, Mass Appeal has kicked things up a few notches for the latest installment of their Rhythm Roulette series, calling on the multi talents of David Banner, who completely blacked out alongside Black Thought and WatchTheDuck on the aptly-titled “Who Want It.”
After blindly perusing the bins at Atlanta’s Wax N Facts, Banner ended up taking home Chicago’s Chicago VII, the Meters’ Cabbage Alley and Gladys Knight & the Pips’ About Love.
After experimenting with all three records, Mr. Mississippi—along with some help from frequent collaborator Gensu Dean and Tricky LT 45—ended up constructing a beat around “Call On Me” off the aforementioned Chicago record.
“That is what hip hop is supposed to be about,” shared an enthusiastic Banner about the successful session. “We couldn’t afford a bass player. We couldn’t afford a guitar player. We couldn’t get studio time like that. That’s what sampling was about. Opening up opportunities to people who don’t have them.”
