The Original Sample:

Talking About Freedom by Fontella Bass

This session marks my first time submitting in almost six months. Most of 2012 was dedicated to making the move up to NYC and now that I’m here, I’m starting to get into a routine which will include making more time for WBS.  Soco and I had the day off due to MLK day, so we decided to work on this track. It’s a REALLY rough draft, but it feels good to work on our first track since moving to NYC. I’m definitely feeling inspired up here and looking forward to making more music.

This week’s sample comes from Fontella Bass’ 1972 release, Free. We thought this week’s sample would be appropriate given Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the inauguration.

On to the next…

peace, @illa0804 /@GenerationILL

  1. Great Job everybody. You know what would be hot would be a 1 sample album 8 to 10 beats off one sample and get rappers to rap on it and put it out as a mixtape..But of course you guys have thought of that before..Right?
