LA based hip hop duo KnowMads with a uplifting sample based track called “101 The Good Stuff” taken from their upcoming LP “Knew School” to be released on July 15. The original sample is taken from Billie Joel’s “Movin’ Out” and we’ve already had Das Racist “You Oughta Know” with a different twist on the same sample back in 2010 here on CM. Looking forward to play this beauty on one of our YUM YUM parties and if you’re interested in watching the official music video too, there you go.
Brooklyn based Das Racist is another one of those new hip hop crews to watch out for. Known for their use of humor and unkonventional style they made it into almost everybodys Top Tunes of 2010, including ours. After rising to Internet fame with their 2008 song “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell”, Das Racist established themselves with the release of their 2010 mixtapes Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man.
One of my personal highlights is “You Oughta Know” – I just love how they used that Billy Joel Sample[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Das-Racist-You-Oughta-Know.mp3]
