Name That Beat: Bringing You The Realness Since ’07

Thumbnail image for hands_digging.jpg

Hi-de-ho, gang! Welcome to this week's installment of Name That Beat. Last week's sample was eagerly answered by a few of y'all, however, I can only award the prize to DJ Diva since she had the first correct answer of "What Can You Bring Me?" by Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band, sampled by Brand Nubian for their "Punks Step Up to Get Beat Down." Good job to everyone else who offered other tracks that this sample was used for. In the future, just remember that if the song you have in mind sounds like a straight jack of the original, e.g. ATCQ's "Rock Rock Y'all," that is not what I'm thinking of. 

This week's sample is below. To be correct you must include in your answer:

  • The title and artist of the original track below.
  • The artist and title of the track who sampled it.

  • Good luck!

    1. Ill Mami loves her some Weather Report.
      Who does it for you? Joe Zawinul? Jaco? Wayne?
      Brand Nubian sampled "American Tango" on their scathing black cop treatise "Black and Blue". I need to dig that album back out again. Or maybe not. Might influence me to kirk out on somebody, joe.
      "I'm back, ninjas!!

    2. @ DJ Stylus:
      I do love me some Weather Report LOL
      Good job on the guess, although I wasn't thinking of Brand Nubian. Do y'all really think I'd do another Brand Nubian song two weeks in a row?
      There's another song I'm thinking of when it comes to this sampled track. Any takers?

    3. DJ Stylus is the man!
      Thanks for da props of da week lol

    4. Well if its not Black and Blue (hey I thought you would run Brand Nubian back-to-back, myself) then I will say its O.C. - Can't Go Wrong.

      the song which was stated by DJ Stylus is American Tango by Weather Report

      that album was Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop
      Ill Mami loves her old school LOL

    8. could have been used for the beginning of "Scenario" too. Leaders of the New School.
