Here's a quick remake that I made of one of my favorite classic joints by A Tribe Called Quest, Bonita Applebum, I sampled the drums from their original recording and then replayed the rest of the track using upright bass, electric guitar and a Fender Rhodes VST in Ableton Live. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Earlier today I found this video of Q-Tip making a case for what he feels is the most important song of The Modern Hip Hop Era. I mostly agree. Just the drum break used in the song is iconic and has been used again and again throughout the last 2 decades. What song(s) would you say have had the biggest impact on hip hop?
