Today’s beat bout is centered on a specific sample used. The sampled track is Billy Paul‘s “Let The Dollar Circulate.”
After listening to the original it seems 9th Wonder did a little more than Jay Dee to spice up the track, but maybe simplicity can reign supreme in this instance. Take a listen to both legendary producers’ reinterpretation of the flow of money and tell us which one you think should win our beat out.
J Dilla: “Track 18“ from Beat Tape 1 from 3 Beat Tapes - (NOTE: “Track 18″ was taken down, but fortunately it is also the instrumental for Steve Spacek’s “Dollar”)
