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.
