Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Timstans?

It's time again for another installment of Czar's Timbo Sample of the Week. This week, I'm sharing Volume 4 of my mix and a sample from Volume 9.

I originally posted Volume 4 back in December of 2004, and I have to say that this mix set the path for the subsequent mixes. This mix was more polished than the earlier mixes, and this mix featured some of my all-time favorite Tim tracks and samples. It's for these and other reasons why Volume 4 is one of my favorite mixes (I'll post my favorite one in a few weeks). Anyway, enough with reminiscing, here's Volume 4:

Now, I had a hard time choosing which sample I was going to share with y'all from Volume 9, so here are two. Enjoy! :-)

Well that's it for this week's installment of Czar's Timbaland Samples of the Week. Check back next week for Volume 5 and a sample from (unreleased) Volume 9.

Timbaland Thursdays: "Hot Mess"

The song features Memphis rapper, J’Royal Price, new Timbo/Wizz Dumb artist from VA, Jimmy Codean (Tim first introduced Jimmy Codean on this vlog), and........what sounds like Petey Pablo!! Peep the track:

Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Timstans?
It's that time again for Czar's Sample of the Week. This week I'm posting Volume 3 of my Timbaland Sample Mixes. I posted this on the old Beat Club forum (and other message boards/forums) back in 2004. What I really enjoyed about this mix was that I'd almost used up all my Timbo samples in my vault, so I had to go back to digging for more Timbo samples to create a full mix. What I also love about this mix, and I've said this before, I love Kiley Dean and her unreleased album Simple Girl, so I was so happy to feature a few samples from that classic album. So here's Volume 3:

Speaking of Kiley, Vol. 9 was going to feature another sample from that track. Peep:

For those who can't hear the sample, check a sped up version of the original:

Now, most of the classic followers of The Chronicles will remember that I posted this sample back in 2009 for the New Year's Eve installment of Czar's Sample of the Week, and might feel a little cheated that I didn't post a new sample off Volume, here's another sample (or interpolation rather) from Vol. 9:

And you know what? Since I was late this week, I'm going to post another interpolation that was actually originally slated to be on Volume 3, but I had hesitations on whether or not this was actually an interpolation, so I cut it from the mix. With each new mix, I put this interpolation in there, and then took it out at the last minute. So, what I want to do is kick it out to the followers/fans of The Chronicles and hear what you have to say about this (giving y'all two different mixes of it to maybe hear it better):

So what do y'all say? Interpolation (vocal and maybe even guitar) or not?

Well, that's it for this week's installment. Check back next week for Volume 4 and another sample from Volume 9.

Czar's Timbaland Sample of the Week

What's up Timstans?

It's Friday, and for the old school followers of The Chronicles, Fridays meant Czar's Timbo Sample of the Week--this Friday is no exception. Each week, I'm going to re-release one of my past eight Timbaland sample mixes along with samples from my unreleased Vol. 9. And since last week was Redman2k3's mix and my Vol. 1 mix, that means this week is all about Vol. 2. Peep:

This mix also came out in 2003. People on the Beat Club forum were really feeling my mix and Redman2k3's mix, so I decided to put together some other samples that I didn't put on vol. 1 and call it vol. 2 (I had no idea back then that I was going to do eight volumes lol). When I listen to the mix again, two things stick out in my mind: 1)This second volume is when I really cared about having a great intro sample that sounded like an introduction into something and would set the whole project up (this would become something that I wanted to do with all my mixes) 2)Having "Big Pimpin'" play longer than it probably should. I did this because I, like a lot of people, love that song and I just wanted to ride out to it lol (I wouldn't do that with another mix until my last). Those who already have Vol. 2 will notice a slight difference: I cut out the samples to The Relativz's "Maria" and Playa's "Gravy Train" because, as we posted here and here on the Chronicles, they aren't Timbaland productions.

And now for the sample from Vol. 9. Since it's Valentine's Day Weekend, I thought I'd release a romantic sample. Check it out:

Hope you've enjoyed this week's installment of Czar's Timbaland Samples of the Week. Check back again next week for Vol. 3 and another sample from Vol. 9 :-)

Czar's Timbo Sample of the Week

What's up Tim Stans?

So Boogie came up with a great idea the other day, and has asked me to re-release one of my eight timbo sample mixes every week and give a little history about each mix. As an added bonus (and this might surprise Boogie), I'm going to post a sample from the unreleased vol. 9 sample mix. So let's get straight to it...

It was the summer of 2003, Kiley Dean's classic (in my opinion) album, Simple Girl, leaked as well as a couple of tracks from Brandy's Afrodisiac album. This was wayyyyy before Thomas Crown Chronicles (there was Timbaland Heaven tho...shout out to Jess! You pioneered this Timbo blog ish!!), so we relied on new Timbo songs and news via members of the Beat Club forum/message board (yes, Beat Club still existed; no MMG yet). Anyway, one day someone posted the sample to Petey Pablo's "Raise Up," and the whole forum was buzzing about and posting Timbaland samples. Soon after, one of the forum members, Redman2k3, posted the first ever Timbaland sample mix (shout out to Redman2k3!!) Check it:

After Redman2k3 released his sample mix, I was sitting on some Timbaland samples (shout out to Malis for helping me with some!), but I didn't know what to do with them. I wasn't an up-and-coming/aspiring producer like Redman2k3, but I wanted to post something. So I downloaded this old, cheap software and mixed the Timbaland beat with the original sample as best I could. The result was the first of 8 Timbaland sample mixes over six years (the later mixes are smoother lol) Peep:

Those of you who already have Vol. 1 will notice that I deleted two samples: "Tell me ya wit it" and "big spender." I deleted the former because I featured the full sample on a later mix, and I got rid of the latter because it's obviously not a Timbaland production.

Now, I couldn't decide on which Timbo sample from Vol. 9 to post, so I thought I'd do two (two sample mixes and two samples makes sense, right?). Enjoy!

So check back next week for Vol. 2 and another sample from Vol. 9

Ginuwine "Hate To Love" produced by Timbaland

There's nothing I love more than when one of The Chronicles music news exclusives becomes a reality. Such is the case with the LONG awaited unreleased Ginuwine track "Love To Hate" from his album A Man's Thoughts that we told you about over 2 years ago! Produced by Timbo, vocal production by Jim Beanz, check out G's "Hate To Love":

Why G decided to ok with the god awful "Get Involved" track over this is beyond comprehension.
