Taking an almost 12-minute journey through some of the most iconic hip-hop records released by the Los Angeles native, Wax Only explores the samples used on some familiar tracks. Featuring borrowed clips from William Bell’s “I Forgot To Be Your Love,” Alchemist flipped this 1969 Stax Records track to deliver the hip-hop classic “Worst Comes To Worst” performed by Dialted Peoples and guest feature Guru. Rican also showcases samples from The Cecil Holmes Soulful Sounds, which was flipped into the Nas record “No Idea’s Original,” and even Joh Plum’s “Here I Go Again,” which is featured on Mob Deep’s “Win or Lose.”
Celebrate The Alchemist’s 41st birthday with a classic Wax Only episode showcasing some of his greatest produced tracks.
