Originally, the ‘winner’ from last week choose the sample for the next week. Sickle choose this beauty by Yvonne Fair: Let Your Hair Down. It’s got a break in there that you’ll recognize form a stack of hip hop tracks (including Jay Z, Fat Joe, Lady of Rage/Premier and one of my favourite emcees, Sean Price), so part of the challenge was to make the sample your own.
There were a lot of great cuts from this, but for me Sickle, Duck and Malik stand out. Oh and TSwan’s. And Needles. damn, what a week.
