Jay Electronica vs. Pete Rock & CL Smooth

Jay Electronica pretty much sonned Diddy earlier today, then throws more salt in the wound by dropping a cut called “The Shiny Suit Theory” featuring Jay-Z and Charlotte Gainsbourg The-Dream. [Spotted at You Heard That New] | Mediafire

Call me vintage but I prefer Pete Rock’s speedier take on the flip of the sample—”Ain’t Got the Love (Of the One Girl on My Mind)” by Philly Soul group The Ambassadors—for his and CL Smooth’s “I Got A Love” from 1994’s The Main Ingredient.

RIP Teddy Pendergrass

R.I.P. to Teddy Pendergrass who died on January 13, 2010 after a long bout with colon cancer.

I’ll be bumping his solos and Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes work all day. The list of Pendergrass sample lifts in Hip-Hop is extensive so I’ll just roll with one of my favorites. Below is Ghostface Killah’s “Camay” featuring Raekwon and Cappadonna. RZA flipped Pendergrass’ “Cant We Try” from his 5th solo album TP.
