It seems as though there’s been another “coincidence” concerning Just Blaze flipping the same loop after someone else, much like the when he did that “P.S.A.” beat for Jay-Z a few months after Black Moon released their “Stay Real” single1. This time he’s used “Shaft In Africa” in a similar manner to the track that K-Def sold Diddy back in November of last year (the instrumental was also featured on K-Def’s website around the same time). Issues of originality aside, I’m interested to hear which track everyone prefers.2
Diddy – “We Gon’ Make It”
Jay-Z – “Show Me What You Got”
Update! Diddy-free version of the K-Def beat:
Update #2: Since there’s been some mention of the El Da Sensai version of this break from the start of the year, produced by Money Mercilesz, I thought I’d put it up here to compare.
You’ll have to put up with the annoying “press advance” drops on it though, that’s all I’ve got. I also threw in the track K-Def did for the same album (The Unusual) since the beat is nice as hell.
El Da Sensai – “Up In Da Spot”
El Da Sensai – “Rock It Out”
- 1. Although it’s worth noting that Buckwild was the first to use it as a skit on OC‘s first LP.[back]
- 2. Puff’s lyrics were supplied by The Game on this occassion.[back]
