My 1st Single

jay-showeminsert.jpg
Fuck a making of an album, here’s a making of just one fuckin’ song. I’m your Source, niggas. Don’t ever get it fucked up. I’m a beast, to say the least.

Da MC

Sir Hova of Brooklyn on “Show Me What You Got”:

It’s just a playful joint but what makes it different is it has the real live drums feel and it has the horns from Public Enemy’s “Show Em Whatcha Got.” Most people probably remember it from “Rump Shaker.” When it come on, you’ll be like, “‘Rump Shaker’ horns.” And the drums are moving so fast, that it’s not your typical, party… I don’t know if that record crosses over. Only because there’s so much action in the drums. The drums are everywhere. It’s like “Crazy In Love” times ten. But, how I slowed it way down was with the hook. I slowed it way down with the hook. It feels like a hip-hop record. Just did the track and it gave me a chance to really be flexible with the flow. It’s like “Hovi Baby” but with those horns it gives you a little bit of the soulfulness of “Encore.”

Da Producer

Mr. Smith on “Show Me What You Got”:

My man Kenny Dope has the thing where him and his man reissue joints… Remember the Octopus breaks. He gave me the 45 of “Shaft in Africa” and I started messing with it in the crib one day. I always liked the one part where it fell, in the beginning with the horns. So I made a little beat out of it, didn’t really think much of it. When I made this beat, [it was] that scene in Fade to Black… when they’re playing another track. The “Shaft in Africa” beat was the beat I originally did and I got so hype over it, but when I made another song with a New Birth break, I completely forgot about it.

One day, I started visualizing the record in my head and happened to be out in L.A., there are some kids I work with out there, talented musicians that call themselves 1500 or Nothing, and when I’m out there we live in the studio for like a week. I brought the beat up in the Pro Tools session, kept my drums underneath and had the band jam on it, ‘cause I want it to feel like a performance session. I wanted it to feel like you’re at a show. So that’s what we did. I directed them. I was just like, “This is the vision.” We did it three times and I took the best parts of each take. As the record goes on, I wanted it to escalate little by little. It never gets to a point where it feels that it turns into a performance rather than a record.

Anybody who’s been around here for the last year knows I’ve been trying to put those “Darkest Light” horns on a track. I gave a beat to Nas that had those horns. Meth got a beat where I chopped up “Darkest Light” and had the horns in the hook. And these records just didn’t happen, artists changed their minds and I wasn’t one hundred percent happy with the beat. But I was just dying to bring those horns back. That’s like the perfect set-off for a record. You hear that horn and you know that it’s about to be something. As I’m sitting in the room, Jay’s like writing to himself in his head and I’m just sitting there listening to the beat and it hits me like, “Wait a minute, it fits right there.” I said to him like “Yo, what do you think about putting the horns to it?” At first he didn’t really get it. So I actually had to grab it and import the horns into the session while the beats were playing, chopped ‘em up and placed ‘em.

As I’m doing that, Jay’s coming up with a hook, to himself. He keeps saying, “Show me what you got. Show me what you got.” It was one of those things where it was very much meant to be. So now I gotta get the Flav vocals in there. “Show em what cha got!” When things like that start to happen with a record, I feel like it’s meant to be.

The hook is straight-forward and slow. The verse is where he’s really getting in as far as the flow. To me with Jay, and this might come off the wrong way, but I’ve worked with him so many times I’m used to it now. People come in and they see that he’s not writing anything down, he makes up a song in ten minutes then goes in and does it. To me, it’s expected now. There was one situation where he felt like he was going too far with the flow. I was like, “No, you have to give us that. For the people that are really listening to the lyrics.” Steve Stoute couldn’t understand what he was saying and I was just like, “Trust me. You’re not going too far.” People are going to rewind it back three or four times just to catch it. Nobody does that anymore. Now everything is just straight forward—A,B,C, 1,2,3. Jay just comes natural. Every song we’ve done, there are certain parts where he gets ill with it. It’s just like playing ball, dribbling in and out.

I knew it would be one of the best songs on the album. And that was just because… Sometimes you just know. Off of the beat alone you know if it’s special.

    Okay, 1st off why did this dude Jay let his record leak on the 6th of 2006 and I read some Dj play’d this wackness 6 times in a row? U niggas need 2 see it 4 what it is. 666

    2nd the joint is aight. It would make a helluva interlude but it’s not a hot song dawg, ya’ll need 2 be honest. And that flow and rhyme sounds alot like Kanye’s weakness 2 me on the realness tip dawgs.

    3rd, let’s make a rule from this point on, that Jay can’t ever use anymore fuckin’ Jordan lines, no more. Jordan is from the South so get off our dicks 1st of all. And next thing he be droppin’ that Jordan shit more times than Game drops Dre’s name in a verse.

    Last but not least. . I hope that New York ain’t puttin all your eggs in Jay Z’s fuckin’ basket cause if so U coming away wit a big L in this 4th quarter like Jordan playin wit’ the Wizards with Kwame Brown in the middle 4 muscle.
    I said this all out of love 4 the game fellas. 100

    1st and formost, why did Jay leak this wackness on the 6th of Oct. 2006 which I read on allhiphop some Dj play’d this shit 6 times in a row at 6o’clock 2day. 666

    2nd the joint ain’t hot man, be honest wit it. It would make a helluva interlude but it’s not a hot song dawgs. The flow sounds alot like Kanye weakass flows and punch lines 2 me.

    3rd, Can we all agree 2 make a rule that Jay can’t keep pulling ‘dat Jordan name droppin bullshit anymore after 2day. Jordan is from the South, N.C. to be exact so get off our dicks but shit Jay be sayin’ that more than Game be droppin Dre’s name up in a verse.

    4th, I hope and pray that the real New York heads ain’t putting all their hip hop eggs in Jay Z’s basket cause if so then U guys will be coming away with a big L in the 4th quarter like Jordan with the Wizards and Kwame Brown in the middle 4 muscle.

    5th, Is it just me or is the all seeing eye off the dollar bill the only thing missing from that Jay Z promo poster with his hands making a pyramid or what? Just asking’ dawgs.

    I know ‘dat Jordan was born in Brooklyn but check the records fool, his parents got the goldenchild up outta there quick fast and in a fuckin’ hurry before he even took a breathe which they never look’d back and where did they take him 2 like 10 seconds after he was born? North Carolina. And have U ever heard him say he was born in Brooklyn? Hell no, cause he don’t claim ‘dat spot. And right now he is back at home where he belongs. . and yea’ U are right. The song does suck. But thanks for the comments which go 2 show & prove how hard U up top crack babies are on our dicks. 100

  • http://UG-RS.com Chillin’

    ^^^^^^^^ I know Jordan was born in Brooklyn dipshit, but check the records cause before he could even take a breath up there his parents got the goldenchild the hell up outta there and where did they come 2 class?

    North Carolina, which is now where he is. . . back home, again. U ever heard Jordan claim ‘dat spot out of his mouth? Hell no never, cause he don’t so U can save all that slick talk 4 the one legg’d man in the ass kickin contest.

    He didn’t never live there and he got all his ball skills from tha’ N.C. around tha’ way so ya’ll can stop calling the Garden and RuckerPark the basketball Mecca, cause it ain’t. Just like we killin’ y’all in hip hop we will take U down thru there in ball 2, yo. Stick wit’ StarBury and the rest of them bumass Knicks.

    The point was Jay keep sayin’ the same shit and ya’ll be riding tha’ Game 4 doin’ ‘dat but everyone else got the point but U home skillet but I digress. The song makes a nice interlude but ‘dats about it.

    But thanks for the comments though yo cause it just goes 2 prove how hard U up top niggas be on our dirty south dicks. 100

    Sorry but this isn’t the first time that samples of these two songs where combined. The first time these two songs where combined in the form of sampling was 1989 on a song called „Soul Food“ by Philadelphias famous Tuff Crew on their legendary LP „Back to Wreck Shop“.
    That song is a pure instrumental track with dope cuts by legendary DJ Too Tuff who is highly underrated. You can check the track „Soul Food“ on DJ Too Tuffs myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/djtootuff ).

    DJ Too Tuff is currently serving 6 – 22 months at Curran-Fromhold Correction Facility in Philadelphia.

    Its an ok song but its not the best song thats goin around or the best of the year. I’ve been hearin nigahs lose the their mind becuz the caught up in him be back. We all know he never planned on retiring it was just a good buisnes plan. Diddy comin out with a album also btu nobodys goin crazy over him i know he weak but he got a fell god song just like dis jay-z song it on 106 and park but dat aint shyt only teenage girls actually vote on that. In cnclusion if u like jay u would like the song BUT dont overrate it. -

    this song is ayt. jay did his thing on it but i’d rather just listen to the instrumental. its just crazy how Nas cd is supposed to come out before Jay’s but Jay is getting all the publicity, its fucked up. Jay lookin real selfish right now. Jay shouldnt even come back out untill Nas album sales reach its full potential, then he should come out with an album. ima fan of both emcees, but Nas is gonna have anotha slept on album…nd jay is gonna drop right after and go plat just off his own name..the jay cd could be wack as fuck and its still gon sell. im anticipating Nas album way more than Jay’s shit.

You judge the beat and all the bullshit and miss the point. People wanted Jay to put this album out. He didnt just take it upon himself. Dont you overstand why people think hip hop is dead, it’s because niggas dont take shit serious any more. Jay and Nas do. Its not all about New York my niggas its about HIP HOP.

    This was a comment taken from DJ Too Tuffs myspace page…errrr. Just should of atleast mentioned this ish..

    I DON’T KNOW IF YOU NOTICED IT BUT THE NEWEST JAY Z SONG IS DONE LIKE THE “SOUL FOOD” SONG FROM TUFF CREW.

    Contrary to the XXL magazine report on the production of the newest Jay Z song that is out, this isn’t the first time that the samples of Johnny Pates “Shaft In Africa” and the horns of The Lafayette Afro Rock Bands “Darkest Light” where combined.

    The first time these two songs where combined in the form of sampling was 1989 on a song called „Soul Food“ by Philadelphias famous Tuff Crew on their legendary LP „Back to Wreck Shop“.

    That song is a pure instrumental track with dope cuts by legendary DJ Too Tuff.
