This week I decided to share a few songs that we’ve been listening in the office. Rather than throwing you guys some completely random tracks, I decided to pick a few with some prominent samples. I really enjoy samples because they can be a great way to discover new music, provide a sense of familiarity, shed some light on an artist’s influences, or simply give something new life. Samples can also cause headaches for artists as clearing them for albums is often a challenge. As you’ve probably noticed, some samples are more noticeable than others.

We’re back with a new Music Monday, on Wednesday, and for this rare Wed morning edition, we’re having a look at rap legend Eminem’s new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. I’m going to go right ahead and say that Eminem was, is (still), and always will be, one of the best rappers in the game. Yes, he’s had some sub-par albums in recent years, but I think that Recovery and especially this new album, which released November 5th, show that he hasn’t lost a step and remains one of the best lyricists and collaborators.
First up we have a new track from a Seattle duo we featured a couple months back. Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps just dropped a brand new song and as usual, it’s nothing short of great. It’s clear that Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps always put 110% into everything they release. From solid production to lyrics, every song is on point.
Welcome back to another Music Monday! I know it’s not everyone’s favorite day of the week but I’m hoping these songs can make your day just a little bit better.
