CRDS Presents-Knowledge Rap Samples-Volume One

In celebration of the legendary Teacha visiting New Zealand shores for the first time ever in April 2012....I have set out to make some compilations showcasing some fat and dope Hip Hop tracks that have sampled the veterans tracks and vocals for hooks and cuts.

KRS had been sampled hundreds and hundreds of times by all kind of artists, I (including myself back in the days on a lost demo) I have always seen sampling or cutting up another artist as a form of great respect and you know that Kris Parker has always had that in abundance.

I think this first 20 track compilation bears witness to the immense influence he has had on Hip Hop for a long time...enjoy.

This, That and The Other...

Mad love to all of my CRDS readers and many thanks for the e-mails I have been getting from longtime fans of the blog, it's really quite humbling...alright so it's a chilled Friday night after a busy week at work, a nice cider, some nibbles and a BDP compilation in my headphones, sounding lovely and getting me more and more hyped for the upcoming KRS One tour next month in Wellington (I was just listening to "Criminal Minded" and remember that the MVC Posse and myself once did a sting for the Weds Nite Jam over a sample of that back in the days, I don't have it anymore so I can't share it but I will always have the memories) not to mention a couple of dope gigs I have upcoming with my crew Evil Mule in April and May.

So without further ado, here are some things I would appreciate you paying attention too...
