A big reason we started this Friday Flips series was to use new music as a gateway drug to get folks hooked on some older joints that may have passed them by. So when the new Redman “Hands Up” dropped we knew we had to start bagging up the goods and moving weight immediately. (Figuratively speaking, I don’t need the DEA busting down my door.) That said, hit the jump for our week seven edition of #FridayFlips where we break down Hamilton Bohannon’s widely recognized “Singing a Song for My Mother” sample, reveal where it’s been used elsewhere throughout Hip-Hop history from Ed O.G. to Roc Marciano and of course Redman, and finally, allow you to vote on which emcees from the old to the new you’d like to see collab for an entire LP with the legendary Easy Mo Bee (voting widget included). Let the edutainment begin.. in the meantime, get familiar with Redman’s “Hands Up,” featuring Doitall & Mr. Cheeks.
