Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up fellow Tim stans?!?! It's Friday again, and that means another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. Now I know it's been a minute since I've posted a sample of the week. Boogie posted one for me two weeks ago, and when Boogie had a three day sample cd fest last week, I decided not to have one that week and just let y'all absorb all the samples that he hit yall off with. But this week, I'm back to bring y'all another Tim sample.

But before I showcase this week's sample, I have to confirm that we will have another sample wars. It should be a hot battle with everyone bringing straight heat. Boogie needs to redeem himself after the last sample war, so I'm lookin' forward to seeing what he's going to bring to the table.

Now, for this week's sample, I thought I'd showcase a Tim sample from one of the best Tim produced albums that was sadly never comercially released: Kiley Dean's "Simple Girl." To me, this is simply a masterpiece, from start to finish. When I was thinking about which sample to showcase from this album, I thought about the somewhat corny (but still solid) track, "America" The track samples "Bonnie and Clyde" from the French musical icon, Serge Gainsbourg. For those who have a good ear, you can probably spot a lot of similarities between "Bonnie and Clyde," and Bubba Sparxxx's track "Deliverance." Tim was definitely influenced by "Bonnie and Clyde," when he was producing the song "Delieverance."

Well that's it for this week's installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. Check back next week, where I'll showcase another Tim sample. And don't forget about Sample Wars II in June!!!



  1. We all remember the remix of "All N My Girl" with MC Solaar from France? Yes we do!

    Solaar had an album ("Prose Combat") out in '94 that also sampled Serge Gainsbourg's "Bonnie & Clyde" on the song "Nouveau Western".

    My theory: Tim came across the Serge song when they checked MC Solaar's discography b4 they decided 2 put MC Solaar on the remix...

  2. Big A why would they check Solaar's discography?

    Czar always a good look homie!

  3. well as a producer/artist, b4 I work with an artist that is unknown 2 me, at least I check out his albums. Especially since its someone from overseas!

  4. nice theory, Aid

  5. Ah Yes Serge Gainsbourg track on this website that's great!
