Otis Redding – Try a little Tenderness (the original to Jigga & Kanyes Otis single)


Filip



While everyone is still knocking Jay-z & Kanye for how bad their, this weeks released, album “The Throne” is for a list of various reasons – here is one that Chuck D brought fwd - i still cant get over how awesome their sample for their lead single “Otis” is. Not a song to dance to, even though people go mental when you play it, doesnt look anything like dancing though, i think its brave enough and in the vein of the old fashioned hip hop to use a sample as soulful as this for a heavily promoted hiphop track, thats meant to go chartland and – no i dont care what they are saying and how much they are bragging about stuff. i stopped paying attention to hip hop vocals a long time ago. I picked better Mantras for me, no but THE SAMPLE is AWESOME. uhmm… i mean this SONG is AWESOME!
