Albert King – Cold Feet sample part 2

I had to revisit this cracking blues number because it was also used in Chubb Rock’s “Just The Two Of Us”. For my money Chubb Rock is one of the all-time underrated MCs in hip hop. His line “she went all Vanessa Del Rio on me” got into my head like an earworm. The only problem was I didn’t know who she was so I Googled her. At Work. Don’t do that.

Sample: Chubb Rock’s – Just The Two Of Us

Check out the frat boys dancing in the Chubbster’s video. Slick. You can also see part one of this “series” here.

This has to be one of my all-time favourite samples in hip hop. The original is so soulful and that comes through in the sample.
