Wow, DâM-FunK has blessed the world with a throwback gem right here. Ripped from his own personal cassette copy, here’s the OG version of Snoop Dogg‘s “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” with Nate Dogg, Warren G and Kurupt from 1992, before “all the bells and whistles” were added.

We never thought Papoose would get a mention let alone be the biggest headline this past week. But thanks to perhaps the most bizarre sequence at Hot 97’s Summer Jam, wherein he crashed the stage to perform one song following Kendrick Lamar‘s devastating set, he’s all we’ve been talking about.

FridayFlips

We here at Takin’ Mines have noticed a crazy trend lately in the reuse of classic samples, so much to the point that its motivated us to launch this new column that we’ll start posting every Friday, appropriately titled Friday Flips (don’t sue me Mr. Silverman). The concept here is to pick one new single every week that’s reused a recognizable sample and see how it holds up to other tracks that flipped the same sample.. easy right? When it’s all said and done, we’ll let you get the last word by voting on your favorite version.

 

So for our inaugural post, we’re gonna see how Scoop DeVille‘s flip of David McCallum‘s 1967 classic “The Edge” was used on the new Jim Jones’ joint “Green Light Go,” featuring Swizz Beatz, while taking a trip down memory lane to see how it was used elsewhere. The sample should be pretty obvious, even to you newbies out there, so hit the jump for some edutainment. #FridayFlips

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
