This one’s cool. I like this one.
So I’ve been checkin out some old school 8Ball & MJG albums lately (which I’m quickly discovering I should have done a LONG time ago) and the title track from their first album “Comin’ Out Hard” has a pretty prominent sample in it that I knew was familiar to me.
8Ball & MJG – Comin’ Out Hard
Do you know it yet…? At first I thought it might be a Jill Scott song I’d heard, I knew it was from a live album of somebody like that… Then it came to me.
Erykah Badu – Stay
But then I was like yo – 8Ball & MJG came out in like 1992 or some shit, and that Badu album is from 1997… There’s a missing piece here. A little searchin’ got me where I needed to be.
Rufus – Stay (feat. Chaka Khan)
I never realized it was a cover! Crazy.
And that’s a rap journey y’all! Dig it
