Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Tim stans? It's Friday again, and that means it's time for Czar's Sample of the Week. Now I've been thinking all week on what to choose for this week's sample, and I remembered that it had been a while since I showcased an Aaliyah sample.

For me, there are only a few songs by Tim that once I find the sample, I say to myself "Damn, Tim did his thing when he sampled this track." I said that when I heard the Monkees' track "Valleri," which was the sample for last week. I just loved the way he sampled that track for G's "What's so Different." Now, I went crazy when I heard the way Tim sampled Minnie Riperton's "Inside My Love" for Aaliyah's "Heatbroken." A lot of artists in hip-hop and r&b have sampled "Inside My Love" (Nas, Freeway, Busta) but I honestly believe that few have flipped the track like Tim flipped it. For those who can't hear the sample, go to about 3:08. If you still don't hear, then just imagine that high pitched voice and the keyboard in slow motion. That's what Tim did to the track. He slowed down the track and pitched it to create this amazing song off a classic album in "One in a Million." This is honestly one of my favorite Tim samples!

I hope everyone has enjoyed this sample as much as I did when I heard it. Check back next week for another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week.
