We highlight some choice samples from Fabolous' "Young OG Project."
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".
As we've done before with Mac Miller and J. Cole, Fabolous is getting his own special edition of Samples Of The Week, thanks to his '90s-themed new album The Young OG Project. Flipping some familiar samples, Loso made an LP tailor-made to trigger nostalgia from longtime hip-hop heads, and now we're highlighting our favorite flips.
