Just found this today on the youtubes, love it, you’ll recognize the sample right away…I hope. Hearing these originals really does it for me. This was used by Kanye on his album Graduation, for Everything I am.
Check the date on this, it only came out in 2004, but it has the feel of being a 70’s classic. Also, I couldn’t find a wiki on this guy?
The BPOTS is hearing the actual lyrics for the first time at the beginning of the song..and when he goes…”hey baby” which Kanye uses to great effect. What a sample!
Kanye I’m with ya baby… keep doinit.
If we can’t be lovers 0:00 – 0:29
