Most of the time Hip Hop takes samples from Soul and Funk. You can also find Jazz samples of course. And whit out a doubt Reggae, as we showed to you in some previous post. Again if you dig like a rabbit you will find Blues, Country, Rock, Latin, Classical, Gospel and much more. It’s all about digging.
But this time I give you something outside all this category. Today I speak about Hossam Ramzy, the Egyptian ambassador of rhythm and the world leading name in Egyptian dance music as it is stated on his official web site. So once again we go deep and wired. If you are looking to some other unusual break check also the Lucio Dalla one.
The song Khusara Khusara has been sampled by Jay-Z in Big Pimpin (feat UGK). I am not what you can call a fanatic of Jay-Z, not even the first album is a classic in my opinion, but he did some good tunes, I have to give him that. Check rather Original Flavor and his featuring in Show & Prove, you will find Jay-Z in great shape there. But that’s another story, the good old days.
I remember I had Big Pimpin as a ring tone on my mobile phone. (Yes like a kid, no shame!). It was 3 years ago and I went to Istanbul for a short holiday. Do you know what happened? Somebody stole my cell phone. For fuck sake, I didn’t know that the sample was Egyptian…..just joking :) , I hope that was no the reason
Anyway, as you probably don’t give a shit about my mobile. It’s time to get in to the music.
Make your girlfriend dance the belly dance and rock on
