With all the hype surrounding Swagger Like Us (partially due to the many MCs who have freestyled over the Kanye West-produced beat), it was only a matter of time before some enterprising producer swiped a sample from the record. So, whose rhymes would be used on this new anthem? Why of course those of Jay “Checkin’ My Fresh” Z. Helmed by production/rap duo Play-N-Skillz (who recently stepped into the Booth for an exclusive interview), Checkin’ My Fresh finds the Texas brothers sampling Jay-Z’s verse on their hook, and adding their own unique swagger to the mix on their respective verses. Though fans are usually quick to judge successful producers who venture out from behind their crafty boards, would-be haters should withhold judgment till their sophomore album, Out Tha Box, is released early next year.
