Samples Of the Week: August 28
Samples Of the Week: August 28 Aug 28, 2014 at 03:03pm
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".  This week, we cover a wacky batch of samples from Action Bronson, Yelawolf and Travi$ Scott. This is the weirdest edition of Samples Of The Week yet.

Action Bronson Announces New Vice Shows Coming This Month Jul 11, 2016 at 04:21pm
In celebration of 4/20 a few months back, Action Bronson and Vice aired an "Ancient Aliens" special where Bronson, Alchemist and Big Body Bes smoked a ton of weed and broke down an episode of the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens."  Of course, like all things Action Bronson it was wildly fascinating and entertaining. The special was so riveting that Action and Vice went ahead and filmed 10 more episodes of "Ancient Aliens with Action Bronson and Friends," which will drop on July 21st at 11pm exclusively on Viceland.

Action Bronson has been so prolific over the last few years, it's easy to forget that he hasn't actually put out a proper full length since signing with Vice/Atlantic. Mr. Wonderful will fill that spot, and while the New York rapper has been tossing around the title for some time, he finally gave us some details on the release last week.

After getting two big albums, Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise and Chris Brown & Tyga's Fan Of A Fan: The Album, last week, this week has been all about the singles.

After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week. That means it's back to covering three big tracks that dropped this week, and this time around, they're taken from all corners of the hip-hop spectrum. First, Action Bronson paired up with The Alchemist for a dusty gem, then Cannibal Ox returned with DOOM in tow for one of their space-age anthems, and the last track on the list... well, you know what the biggest song of the week was.

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.
