Aural Fixation: Dissecting the Shook Ones Pt. II Sample

First and foremost, phat shouts to Bronco of The-Breaks for making this epic discovery. For all the folks who couldn't recognize the sample at first - I couldn't either; I needed help from Adobe Audition - the video above demonstrates the changes to pitch and half notes needed to re-envision what Havoc was cooking up in '94. Simply amazing. Kon and Amir are gonna need to update their shitty "50 Greatest Hip Hop Samples" list pronto - unless I beat them to the punch... Ha! Stay thirsty, my friends.
