DJ GrantLOVE – Biggie ‘n Puff: The Samples Pt.1

To say Biggie & Puff is Old School would be a slap in my own weathered face. Sure I’m in my 40’s, so Old School to me will always be Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, Fab 5 Freddy and the Like.

To me Puff can arguably be the most significant person in the history of sampling. Argue ad nausea if you like, but if you look at his body of work, along with his Hitmen Production crew;You’ll see the genius of his work. Hip-Hop started on sampling 80’s R&B and rock, Puff just brought it back and expounded on the music to create an aural and visual masterpiece, one after the other, after the next.

Some of Biggie & Puff’s biggest hits are below, but in their full length Original glory, before the chopping and the screwing in the studio. Hear what they heard before they made it an actual song.

Remember as always…”It’s not old, if it’s NEW to you!”


Peace & Love, dj grantlove head shot
