This is one a lot of people will be pretty familiar with, Mmtune – Juicy Fruit. This one was probably the reason why I started doing this section of the blog, after overhearing someone complaining about people re-using samples. Said person holds Biggie’s Juicy as the greatest track of all time. Admittedly a lot of these tracks don’t do much to change the beat. Mitchy Slick’s is probably the exception. I skipped a lot that all sound the same.
