Diggin In The Crates : Jimi Hendrix Special


For this special edition of Diggin In The Crates, I have 3 classic tracks by Hendrix that have been sampled by 3 well known hip hop artists.
First up we have “Happy Birthday”, as sampled by the Beastie Boys on their ode to the man himself, “Jimmy James”.

Next up is the track “Who Knows”, taken from the 1970 album “Band Of Gypsys (Live)”. This track was sampled back in 89 by Digital Underground on their track “The Way We Swing”, a personal D.U favourite of mine!

And finally we have “Little Miss Lover”, taken from the 1967 album “Axis: Bold as Love“. There’s some heavy drums on the intro to this track, that were nicely sampled by A Tribe Called Quest on their classic posse cut, “Scenario”.
