Top 10 Samples in Hip-Hop History ~ Part 54 (Road Trip Edition)
Me and the Biz
My Sweet Paulita and I have been roadtrippin together since we first met. Fa real. Our first date back in '98, we rented a car and took off for Memphis together. Summer of '99 was the "Trippin' Hippie Tour" and we drove a white convertible up to Cleveland for the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame museum. They were doing sick tributes to Parliament and Ramones that summer. Then we headed south and didn't stop til we got to Nawlins. Got hammered on Bourbon Street, few days later and we are in Austin Texas. Drove all the way west through New Mexico, Arizona and wound up in Vegas. Great times.
Anyways, this summer we had to keep things local so I dragged us to Atlantic City for the DJ Expo where we met Biz Markie. I brought all the vinyl, CD's and gear to perform a Top 10 live from the DJ Expo but it was way too loud and the vibe wasn't funky.
Then Paula wanted to go to Hershey Park and to check out the Amish Farms outside Harrisburg PA so I packed all the stuff again hoping this time we could get a Top 10 done at some point on the roadtrip. But first we made a stop in Allentown at a place called Double Decker Records.
If you wanna check them out...
15 minutes before we shot the new Top 10....we stopped to dig.
