Cam’ron, Just Blaze And Dizzy Wright To Perform At Broccoli City Festival
"Get Down"Artist: Cam'ron
Producer: Chad Hamilton
Release Year: 2004
Song Sampled: "Life's Opera"
Sample Release Year: 1985
Sample Effect: Dipset was always surprisingly effective at looping a quick, seconds-long sample and building an entire song out of it, and that's exactly what Killa does here.
Why The Song Is Dope: There will always be a debate about which album was Cam'ron's best, but for my money it's gotta be Purple Haze, and I don't care what the rest of y'all think. The track is so simple, and that's exactly what makes it so perfect; all you really need at the end of the day is something to ring in the beat, and let Killa do the rest. One of the standouts of his career, and a Dipset classic. It's, for better or for worse, the Diplomats' version of Jay's "Hard Knock Life," but it samples a much less annoying track. —DR
