[Intro: Fuzzy Jones]
As revealed in an interview with Hip-Hop Wired, Chicago legend The Twilight Tone dug up this sample of Fuzzy Jones, a legend in dancehall for his work on dubplates and in sound clashing culture.
Then we just got to talking and I just thought, ‘What could I do that would just be counter establishment? Or counter cliché, like what could I put on there.?‘ For some reason, I heard that dude [in the beginning of the track], I heard him, I had a vision. I heard that ‘Well it’s the weeping and the moaning’ and I was like ‘Oh!‘ Then it just literally, I hate to sound so like comic book or some sh-t, but literally I was like ‘Oh my God,’ like I had chills. So then, I was invited to the studio. I talked him, maybe that was Friday, or Saturday, We met up.
“The next day he invited me to the studio, and he was there and a couple of his crew, and I played the sample and everybody froze, everybody paused. Like everybody. It’s just that everybody was keyed to it. and Ye was like ‘Oh snap,‘ and he started hitting the buttons on it. The rest is, as you would say, history or our story.”
This particular intro comes from Dust A Soundboy by Super Beagle, released originally sometime between 1993 and 1998. It came out on Technique Record’s version of the Stalag 17 Riddim, which was originally produced in 1973 by Winston Riley and has heralded over 300 songs
In this case, Kanye’s rivals will be tearing their hair out and cursing themselves for not being able to compete with G.O.O.D Music, Hip-Hop’s champion sound
