Song That Needs To Be Sampled
I was driving home today and one of those retro-stations was having a Labor Day 1980s music flashback weekend. The DJ had just introduced Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” and as the music started playing, I imagined rap over it. I starting contemplating what tunes need to have a fresh take on them and this would be a good contender. The slow melodic guitar riff of Chapman’s hit seemed to beckon for Kayne West or B.O.B. to lace a rhyme over it. Would the music from “Fast Car” be a good background for a hip-hop song?
