sounds of harlem

some chick sampled the shit out of ice cube's "today was a good day"?
what the shit is that?! that song is way to cool to rip, at least not for another 10 years or so.
why don't people try to make their own stuff good via talent and originality?
standing on shoulders makes for a bad foundation.

i'm off to go backpack hunting, then to meet up with some folks later in chinatown. hope everyone has a nice saturday.

chellez is home tonite! (and there was much rejoicing. yay!)

Now, did she sample the actual Ice Cube song? Or did she sample the same original Isley Brothers joint from which "It Was a Good Day" was sampled? In the past couple years that's happened a shitload. In most cases, Puffy is the culprit (see the most recent Mario Winans song which uses the same Enya sample that the Fugees used on "Ready or Not") and the disgusting 112 song that used the same sample from Luniz' "I Got Five on It"

that is what gets me!
she was sampling Cube - Isley Bros are fair game - I think Cube is still too fresh to be using for spare parts.

The cycles of re-use are getting so short...when will unique thought and creation just dissapear altogether in western culture?

Hope you don't mind, but I figured I'd add you after our entertaining afternoon the other day.
