The Samples to Some of Your Favourite Hip Hop & R&B Songs

Nov 15 2017 BY Gerald Onyango

Okay, so boom; last week I had a revelation that has essentially altered how I view life and thus what I consider life to be. It was revealed to me that Pharrell’s legendary “Frontin'” and Mase’s classic “Tell Me What You Want” are in theory the same beat (at least they use the same melody). Bar a small key shift, they’re the same beat. Crazy right? Honestly, listen to them side by side and you’ll be as astounded as I was. Anyway, in light of that, I thought it would be wicked to make a playlist with some of my favourite samples that feature in some of your favourite hip hop & R&B songs. If you’re a music lover to the core. You’ll love this playlist, enjoy!
