Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up y'all?!? It's Friday again, and that means another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. When Boogie posted that video of Missy's performance in Germany, I realized that it had been a while since I showcased a sample from Missy. So this week, I decided to have a sample that's definitely an oldie but goody.

Missy Elliott's "Sock it 2 Me" has to be one of the top ten Missy/Tim songs for me. The entire track is just sick, and it's one of those tracks that really made me fall in love with that Missy and Tim sound in '97. Well the track samples the 1968 song "Ready or Not (Here I Come)" by the soul group The Delfonics. Most of y'all will probably notice that the Fugees essentially re-did the song for "Ready or Not." But, if you all are real Tim stans, you will notice that the string stabs that were sampled on "Sock it 2 Me" are also the same ones featured in the chorus of Usher's "You Make Me Wanna (Timbaland Remix)."

So that's it for this week. Hope y'all liked this oldie but goody. I'll catch y'all back next week for another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week.
