I’m beginning the week of with a classic Dilla beat. Sampling Bobby Caldwell’s Open Your Eyes, Dilla created probably one of Common’s biggest hits. If you listen to the track, it doesn’t just sound like your regular sample. It sounds to me as if Dilla actually recorded the song with new instruments to accompany the drum track instead of just adding a drum track to an already complete song. Dopetastic.
Enjoy this classic.
