Me and Jay were speaking on this earlier…I was listening to DC emcee Fat Trel’s latest No Secrets (which is nice, by the way) and came upon a track early in called ‘Deep Thoughts’. Five seconds in I immediately think about Prodigy’s (of Mobb Deep) ‘Diamond’ from his classic H.N.I.C. Other Hip-Hop fans will also remember Joe Budden’s use of the sample (. Quite frankly it wouldn’t surprise me if there were a hundred others, this is a really sick sample.
With all this said, I had to throw these up here with the original, which is from a crazy timeless Syreeta (and Stevie Wonder) track ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers’ from Stevie Wonder Presents Syreeta.
