 Sampled Saturday *Huey, Henny, The Tripp, Ferragamo, Truth HimselfAnother edition of Sampled Saturday and I’m giving this a fresh label as all of these songs have come out within the last month all are hip-hop yet sample non hip-hop songs in mostly the pop genre. Take a listen, guarantee you fall in love with at least one of these songs.

First I gotta hit you with The Tripp‘s “Pure Creation” which samples parts of the score and dialogue in the film, Inception. Shout out to GMAD on the find, loving the simple piano & hi-hat beat. One of the few chill songs I really appreciate because it sounds different.

When someone samples Queen, it’s fairly impossible for me to dislike the song. Carlos Ferragamo raps over this dope instrumental pretty well. Ferragamo was featured on an e-dubble Freestyle Friday song (FF #33) and I’m glad e-dubble’s manager hit me up with Carlos’ latest project, Shades of Blue.

Next we got Truth Himself rapping over one of my favorite songs I heard on KROQ where I immediately said, I got to find out who is performing this song. Truth Himself samples The Temper Trap‘s hit single, “Sweet Disposition” which is heard in a million films so hearing this hip-hop over the song is a dope change of pace.

Next we got Henny rapping over UK pop singer Daniel Bedingfield‘s “Gotta Get Thru This”. He keeps the foundation of the instrumental, throws in a simple beat and raps his ass of to make for a chill yet popping hip-hop song.

Lastly, here’s one of the newest songs from my favorite West Virginia rapper, Huey Mack. Actually Huey Mack is the only rapper I like from West Virginia (sorry Novi Novak). In this he samples La Roux (who hasn’t) but it’s a dope song, which I mostly enjoy because he took an electro pop song and turned it into a hip-hop jam with a La Roux hook.

Last week, Colin Munroe mashed-up La Roux’s “Bulletproof” with Nicki Minaj’s verse from Kanye’s song “Monster”. At first I was iffy on it but after a few listens I do enjoy how the songs mix and things its a good effort by Colin Munroe. This is the second installment off The Revox Suite, which are a series of remixes from Colin Munroe.

Today, Chris Webby released “Bulletproof” (credit 2DB), which sample’s La Roux and has Webby and Joell Ortiz rapping over it. This is the first leak off Chris Webby’s upcoming mixtape. I really like Chris Webby tracks when he samples other music and this is another good track from Webby.
