    Okay, now y'all got me thinking about mid-90's Houston and not only how much things were popping there back then, but how so many of the key players had migrated from even more country ass Southern places. DJ Screw was originally from lil ole Smithville, Texas. UGK was from Port Arthur. ESG was from Shreveport. Big Mike and NO Joe were from New Orleans. 8 Ball & MJG and Tela were from Memphis. Devin was from Florida. Really, it was an all-star assortment of the best that the South had to offer, all in one place...with more soul than you could shake a stick at.

    Well... page one of this thread was okay

    I don't know the southern rap songs mentioned by title or lyric only on page two

    Maybe include the rap songs too so I can "diversify"

    It's looking spotty and sparse in here; I don't know that you've made the case for southern sampling yet.

    I don't see how "Wood Wheel" can be from DK64, it was first used on Geto Boys I>Death Do Us Part/I> which predates that game by several years.

    I think it's just live instrumentation.

    Makes sense. I was never a video game dude, so I don't even know when N64 was out.

    The case was only that the South not be systematically excluded. There are definitely a few worthy candidates for any all-time hip-hop samples list already in this thread.

    You're making it worse by only posting the originals and not the usages.

    I'm serving all sorts of great info up for you, that's not in the sample faq by the way, on a silver platter...and despite not knowing who the hell you are, you are steady complaining. You're welcome.

    hahaha....check this gem of a quote out:

    But that?s just [my opinion], and fuck me. I don?t mean nothing. I?m just a nigga who fought harder than a muthafucker to get our records played in New York and on the East Coast period. And now all a nigga needs to do is fart on a record and it gets played.[/b] So it?s fine by me. I?m cool with that.

    Okay. Have fun reading your own posts then wondering why no one else on the board listens or learned anything.

    Most people on the board know the songs I'm referencing. Maybe I'll go back and add some clips in just for you. But you could just as easily pull up a youtube window and search for the songs yourself.

  • CinisterCeeCinisterCee 863 Posts
    The thread is trying to make an argument for southern sampling and there are a few titles that are NOT[/b] famous tracks by Scarface/Geto Boys, Three 6 Mafia, Gangsta Pat, 8Ball & MJG, UGK, Lil' Wayne, OutKast.

    So it's handy to have the links right there for people who don't normally check for the south. If you were actually preaching to the choir ("most people on the board know the songs") then you wouldn't have to state your case, would you?
