Sample Muzik : Anniversary

If you listen to Hip hop its a million percent chance you have heard a sample from a song of the past. I for one love samples because it puts me on music that otherwise I would have never heard of, or took the time to listen too. Because of my age and my taste you know ? I think producers like Kanye West, Justice L.E.A.G.U.E and 9th Wonder are some of the best samplers in the game right now. They know how to sample and sample very well.
Imma start something new on my blog where we look at a song that took a sample from an old song and then the original song and today we're gonna start with Tony ! Toni ! Tone ! classic song for the lovers "Anniversary" . Now this song was sampled by New Jersey Lyricist Joe Buddden on a deep track off of his Classic Mixtape Mood Muzick 2 "If I Die Tommorrow" take a listen to both.
The Orginal

The Sample

"I might get frusrated fuckign with the hood son,but everyday above ground is a good one" - Joe Budden

Tone ! song was also sampled by the lastest Young Money recruit Short Dawg on his latest mixtape :SouthernFlameSpitta Vol. 3" , It's titled "Choosin Me" and Short's wordplay as always is on point as he tells his girl fuck the rumors and the bullshit all that matters is you and me.Real laid back and cut track, check it out

Nicki Minaj Female Rap's Savior ?

Like it or not it seems that the fans have chosen the new savior of female Hip Hop. One of the few who stand out and a land where male dominate Nicki Minaj has made a statement in such a short time.From Going head to head and bar for bar with the Biggest Superstar in Hip Hop in Lil Wayne to trading verses with the hottest street artist in Gucci Mane to holding her own against New Jersey rhyme spitter Joe Budden in the BET Cypher to having a very dope Mixtape, I think its safe to say that Nicki Minaj is here to stay.

Some people may hate on her or her female brigade that call them "Barbies" but you cant hate on her and deny the fact that she has been grinding for everything she has gotten so far.I remember watching her on The Comeup Street DVD like 3 years back and I was like she was dope.I never thought she would be this huge this fast honestly. But like her label mate Drake she has found a patch for herself where the girls love her and wannabee like her some even wanna feel on her cookies and all the dudes will throw it in the bag for her,

Dont let her Looks fool you tho, accompanied by a energy and wacky sometimes cartoonish character, Nicki spits them ILL bars. Her flow like the president of her label is pretty effin crazy.She's very diverse , she also sings if you didnt know (checkout "Handstand" ft. Shanell and Lil Wayne's "Knockout").And she does well if I must say., is she as political as a Lauryn Hill ? No, Is she as vulgar as a Lil Kim ? sometimes...but is she her own rapper and unique in her own way ? Hell yeah she is !!

Not to mention the love she shows to her "barbies" and her "Ken's" which is very genuine,she goes on ustream and call her fans, she takes pics, she retweets and talks to them on twitter, she might even "SIGN YA BOOBS", her connection with her fans is a very close one, which is why some of them ride for her so hard. The barbie movement is a very big one, proably the biggest movement in hip hop right now and in urban neighborhood in America there's more than likely atleast one barbie.

The crazy thing is she doesnt even have an album out yet !! And she already is on tours and doing big time guest features and it's just beginning. Nicki has the full package the tasty looks, the go getter attitude, the exciting personality and the bomb ass music. No matter what you say you cant deny she is the last of a dying breed of female rappers and if the harajuku barbie is the choice we have as the female who will reign supreme in Hip Hop then in my opinion that wouldnt be a bad choice at all........
"Write it down take a picture bitches e-mail that, I came to save a thing called Female rap" - Nicki Minaj on "Can Anybody Hear me"

It's Up To Me

As you might or might not know im a huge Lil Wayne fan. The boy has been doing this rap thing for quite a long time now over 12 years if im not mistaking.Over the years he has dropped classic verses, classic songs, classic mixtapes and classic albums. This may very well be his best song ever. A young weezy at 17 years young spills his heart over a dope Mannie Fresh beat accompanied by his Hot Boy brother Turk,On his first album ever "Tha Block is Hot" Wayne talks to his father who he lost in a fatal murder.
It was very touching because Wayne was so personal it was like a letter to his step father "Rabbit".He talks about how he cant wait to see him in heaven and how he is making "Rabbit" proud.
Not only do I think Wayne has made Rabbit proud but I think he has made New Orleans proud. This song is a classic, "Up To Me"

"The samething make ya laugh make ya cry, and everybody that you love its like they have to die, I pray to the lord everyday and ask him why, and ask him to bless ya soul everytime I pass by" < listen here
