LIKE samples Erykah Badu and Biggie for “Sip Mo”

I made the patented “oooh that’s fire” scrunchy face twice when listening to LIKE‘s latest release, “Sip Mo.” The first time? When the Erykah sample came in. The second time?

Punch Reflects with the Erykah Badu-Sampling “Gone”

I’m always wary of a song that samples Erykah Badu. I think to myself, “y’all better not taint the sounds of Ms. Badu. She’s the national treasure.” That being said, Punch did his thing on “Gone.” The instrumentation is mellow and mild, featuring a prominent sample of “On & On” in the midst of it. . . .

Erykah Badu Remixes Drake’s “Hotline Bling”

Is this the twilight zone? I was just complaining about the number of “Hotline Bling” remixes already out in the atmosphere.
