For many years now, rappers have used samples from mainstream pop and rock songs as the backbone to this hit singles. Somewhere along the way that trend grew tiresome and producers started taking old rap samples instead. This is perfectly demonstrated on the song My 6’4, the second single from Mike Jones’ upcoming release, The American Dream. My 6’4 utilizes a sample from Eazy-E‘s Boyz-n-The-Hood, giving the single an old school feel. Snoop Dogg and Bun B are featured on the five minute collabo, giving a modern touch to this somewhat nostalgic single.
