Governors Ball

So despite the rain and mud struggles, I braved two of the three days at Governors Ball this weekend. I should have gone on Sunday, but my body just couldn’t do it. Instead of seeing Kanye, Beirut, HAIM, and all the other Sunday acts, I took a personal day of relaxation and zen. Much needed, and definitely no regrets, […]

Dr. Dre – Kush (feat. Snoop Dogg & Akon)

This just got leaked and as you can see Dre isn’t too happy about it. The song itself is just another song about weed and usually that doesn’t do much for me but when it comes to Dre and Snoop it somehow connects. What’s most impressive about this track though is the beat because  it […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Soul Mann and The Brothers et Dr. Dre

Back with another Dr. Dre Sample Saturday.  According to his words, the man had something major to prove with this project. For the last couple of years, there’s been a lot of talk out on the streets about whether or not I can still hold my own, whether or not I’m still good at producing. That […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Joe Cocker et 2Pac

I’ve never dropped “California Love” at a party and gotten a negative reaction, and I’ve probably played it a few hundred times over the last ten years.  There’s something undeniably special about this record that made it 2Pac’s most well-known of his career.  It was originally recorded with three verses from Dr. Dre, and wasn’t […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – No Doubt et Dr. Dre

So far with Sample Saturday, we have discussed mostly records used from the 60’s and 70’s.  Today for a change, I figured I would uncover a sample from the 90’s. Chronic 2001 is one of my favorite hip hop albums to this day, and the more I learn about the way it was put together, the […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – David McCallum et Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre’s production used to be more sample heavy in the 90’s compared to his recent work.  Nowadays he is more likely to have studio musicians replay samples, giving him more flexibility for arranging the elements.  Although he may not be known as a “sample” producer, Dre has indeed dug up countless amounts of dusty […]

Ben Folds – B*****s Ain’t S**t (Feat. Mr. Reynolds and Lin-Z)

Before hearing this I thought Ben Folds was the very antithesis of gangster, but a few years after graduating college I’ve finally learned the lesson my Liberal Studies 1 professor was trying to drill that whole semester, all is truly one. B*****s Ain’t S*** is the tragic love story of a young Snoop Dogg who […]

Klaxons – No Diggity (Blackstreet & Dr. Dre Cover)

I went out last night and next thing you know the suns out and it’s Friday morning… I’m still up and have a huge to do list before getting into the weekend so this is going to be a quick one. Been posting a lot of new music lately, time for a throwback, a cover […]

Eminem – Say Goodbye to Hollywood

“People shouldn’t be afraid of failure, they should be afraid of success.” To say the least, life for the highly ambitious can be very complicated, bitter-sweet and full of irony. Say Goodbye to Hollywood, from the “Eminem Show” LP shows just how well Marshall understood this perspective. I love my fans, but no one ever […]

Dr. Dre – Let Me Ride

When Jimmy Iovine (Chairman of Interscope) signed Dr. Dre he said he knew nothing about rap music, in fact he didn’t like it. Yet he was so taken by Dre’s production and sound quality that he couldn’t pass it up. “Let Me Ride” is off of Dre’s 1992 LP “The Chronic”, produced during his G-Funk era, […]
