Editorial: Who Sampled It Better? #4 - The Results!

[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's the results from round four! For the latest edition of WSIB we gave you two items to vote for: Wu-Tang Clan vs. Slim Thug and MC Lyte vs. Diamond D. Who came out on top?

In our first battle it was a tie very early on, but in the late voting one song pulled away to take a two thirds majority, so our winner ends up with 67% of the vote. I don't think this takes anything away from either song though - I'd happily drive around with the volume on full blast to either one any day. Johnson's song is just that good!

* Wu-Tang Clan vs. Slim Thug: J.J. Johnson's "Parade Strut"

WINNER! Wu-Tang Clan's "Uzi (Pinky Ring)"

In our second vote I thought the two competitors might be relatively even, but giving the winner credit where he's due, he flipped it with a flute loop that made it extra head nodding by comparison. So with 83% of the vote here's your winner of the second battle this week.

* MC Lyte vs. Diamond D: Three Dog Night's "I Can Hear You Calling"

WINNER! Diamond D's "Best Kept Secret"

JGPR: Though this is their debut as a group, both artists are hip-hop lifers who have paid many dues in the culture. Greenville, NC native Sam Brown has spent the last fifteen years mastering his rhyme-style and beat-making with the MPC. In love with the music, Brown headed to the mecca of the sound in New York City, where he assisted many sessions at the legendary Quad Studios.

Fuzz Jaxxís career as an emcee stretches back the mid 90ís in his hometown of Augusta, GA. As a member of Shaft he gained local notoriety and a following. Arriving in Wilmington, NC in 97, he has grown to a respected lyricist and cornerstone of the underground hip hop scene there and in neighboring regions. Besides his solo work, some other Fuzz Jaxx projects have included the four man crew, N.H.A. and the live hip-hop fusion band, Organix.
