Samples Of The Week: January 15
Samples Of The Week: January 15 Jan 15, 2015 at 11:51am
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

Samples Of The Week: March 26 (Action Bronson Edition) Mar 26, 2015 at 09:37am
This Monday, Action Bronson dropped his madcap, adventurous debut album Mr. Wonderful. Although it was a little less sample-driven than his prior mixtapes, its live instrumentation was still often based around skeletons of existing songs taken from far-flung genres, as is Bam Bam's habit.  We've already covered "Easy Rider," "Actin Crazy," "Terry" and "Baby Blue" in previous editions of Samples Of The Week, so this time we're putting some of the deeper cuts under the source-material lens. Let us know your favorite tracks in the comments section.

Review: Action Bronson & Party Supplies' "Blue Chips 2" Nov 8, 2013 at 12:45pm
Action Bronson is not your typical rapper. The portly fire-flame gourmet chef turned rapper with a shock of curly red beard, whose father is an Albanian immigrant and mother is a Jewish New Yorker, looks nothing like his peers. Sharpening his lyrical skills with several mixtapes, Bronson dropped his major label debut EP Saaab Stories a few months ago.

Lyrics Of The Week: September 25-31 Nov 1, 2013 at 06:46pm

Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not sure about will be bolded.
