Rhymefest - Blue Collar [The Samples]

And yet another collabo... This time we've got a joint set with fellow sample aficionado Alex from Goons Dancing. Rhymefest's 2006 release Blue Collar featured some great production. Everything Mark Ronson touches turns to gold, but Blue Collar also had some great beat-boardsmanship from Emile, No I.D., Just Blaze, Cool & Dre and several other greats. My personal favorite cut and sample on this album tends to be a toss-up between 'Build Me Up Buttercup' and 'Bullet and a Target', the former for its catchiness (and There's Something About Mary memorability) and the latter for its positive message and great rhythms. The use of a sample by The Strokes is also pretty top-notch on Ronson's part, I must say... Anyways, this set is totally off-the-wall with some very slick originals that I'm sure you'll dig... Enjoy!


  1. Great album, great collection of songs. Top notch work, Goon & Ivan.

  2. Good work. You just missed one sample for the track Tell a story. It's You don't have to be alone by New birth.
