Czar's Sample of the Week

Sup y'all? It's Friday, and Friday means it's time for Czar's Sample of the Week. Since it's the last Friday of the month, I thought that I would showcase a Tim track that contains more than one sample.

One of my favorite tracks off the classic Ginuwine album, The Bachelor, has to be "G Thang." It's just a smooth track with features by Missy, Magoo, and Tim. But Tim sampled and Ginuwine interpolated so many tracks on this song. The main beat samples "Numb" by trip-hop band Portishead (if you don't have any of their albums, I suggest you get them!). Some might remember that this is the same sample in Aaliyah's remix to "If your Girl only Knew." The chorus to "G Thang" samples a brief cut from "The Boomin' System" from LL Cool J's 1990 album "Moma Said Knock You Out." Now, the bridge to "G Thang" interpolates a 1984 classic hit track "Set it Off" by Strafe. Honestly, "Set it Off" is one of my favorite tracks of all time! Lastly, near the end of the song, Ginuwine resings the vocals from D'angelo's hit track "Brown Sugar"

So there you have it folks, one song, with four samples. To give everyone a heads up, this is not the only track that Tim produced that has multiple samples. Hopefully, I'll hit y'all off with more of these tracks in the near future. Have a great weekend, and I'll catch y'all next week for another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week.

Peace and Love,
