Editorial: Who Sampled It Better? #3 (Two Entries This Time)
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's time for round three! With our second edition of "Who Sampled It Better?" I asked the audience to vote on the producer and/or rapper who made the best use of a loop in a song, and shared the results a week later.

This time to make it easier for everyone involved, both me as the writer and you as the reader, I've narrowed it down from four samples to vote on (with two examples per each) to just two samples. I've had a few good suggestions along the way and I'm going to put them to use in future editions, but there's one I have to do right away and it's going to be a little... quirky.

Fifteen Videos Starring or Featuring Ras Kass
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

[Ras Kass courtesy @RasKass]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: A reader on our Facebook page recently asked why we hadn't reviewed Ras Kass' "Soul On Ice 2" yet. In fact I believe Ras was described as "under covered" compared to other artists. If that's the case it's certainly not out of any bias against Mr. John Austin IV. He's been one of my personal favorite emcees since the 1990's, to the degree that many of his bars and punchlines are etched permanently into my brain as if laser was cutting into stone.

On the other hand looking at our review archive I count seven different projects under his name not to mention a compilation album and one with Apollo Brown so I respectfully submit "under covered" doesn't describe our attitude toward his work at all.
