Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Ennio Morricone et Jay-Z

The 1966 film The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly was a classic western that tells the story of three men who dangerously pursue information about the location of a buried treasure of coins.  The three characters, including a young Clint Eastwood as Blondie (“The Good”), go through several different stages in their relationships with […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Tom Scott et Pete Rock & CL Smooth

This is the One Year Anniversary of Sample Saturday… and a very special one at that. This past week I lost a friend of mine that I grew up with, went to school with, worked at Applebee’s with… and built a lot of unique memories with.  On Monday after his funeral service I spent hours […]

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

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – The O’Jays et 2Pac

When All Eyez on Me came out in 1996, I was in middle school, and was still getting familiar with hip hop as a genre.  For years, all I listened to was the east coast heavy hitters of the time, and it took me a while to really give Pac the proper attention.  I still consider […]
