Czar's Sample of the Week

What's happenin' fellow Tim stans? I trust that you all supported Tim and bought Shock Value this week, and are enjoying the album so far. As you all know, it's Friday, and every Friday here on the Chronicles brings a new installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. As has been my mission this year with the sample of the week, I wanted to showcase a sample by an artist that hasn't been really showcased in the past. With that said, this week focuses on a sample by Timbaland's brother Sebastian.

Sebastian has been heavily involved in Timbaland's music over the past several years as not only a featured rapper on Timbaland-produced tracks, but also as a ghostwriter for Timbaland. With that said, one of my favorite solo efforts by Sebastian has got to be "Phenomenon." I've been a fan of the track since the days when it was on some DJ's mixtape. Despite featuring Indian-Ameircan vocalist Rajeshwari Parmar (aka Raje Swhari), "Phenomenon" samples "Ya Ward" by Saudi Arabian artist Abdul Majeed Abdullah. Although this is a straight foward sample, the end product came out sounding amazing (at least in my opinion).

Well, that's it for this week's installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. As always, check back here next Friday for another dose of Czar's Sample of the Week. I'll catch y'all later, and if you haven't bought Shock Value yet, buy it right now...and if you already purchased a copy, buy another one...or two...or three...or four...or...
