After discussing Dilla’s production on Slum Village’s I Don’t Know with DJ Amir, producer Waajeed now sits down with DJ Spinna in this new episode of Bling47 Breaks Dilla. DJ Spinna shares his view on Get Dis Money by Slum Village and Dilla’s Herbie Hancock sampling.
According to DJ Spinna, “Herbie Hancock’s Come Running to Me has been sampled by a lot of producers, but never how Dilla did it on Slum Village’s Get Dis Money.” Waajeed and him sat until the wee hours of the night talking about chopping records. “There was nothing out at the time that sounded or felt like this track.”
Waajeed: “Bling47 Breaks are a direct result of my frustrations. One being the misunderstanding of James Yancey a.k.a. J Dilla. I felt there was no content that reflected his quality of work without having some agenda to sell you something. I picked up my camera and I did something about it. I film, edit, and animate, each piece. I do it to honor and continue the legacy of my departed comrade. But also as a service to you.”
