The “drop” is the point on a track delineated by a switch in rhythm or bass line, typically after a recognizable build-up & break. In hip-hop and electronic music, the drop ends with the reintroduction of the full bass line and drums.
This is one of the more frequently sampled Beastie lyrics, from Pharcyde’s “Drop” to ”Benz or Beemer” by Outkast to 2 Live Crew’s “Get Loose Now”. Even the Beasties could resist their sample, splicing it in both “Johnny Ryall” and “Intergalactic.”
