The Vocal Sample Behind “A Milli” Revealed

This is the last Lil Wayne-related post for a while, I swear.

Check out this video breaking down where the vocal sample from Bangladesh’s “A Milli” beat came from. It’s a rare remix of A Tribe Called Quest’s “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo.”

Amazing.

    Interesting and worthless information at the same time. That video was about a minute longer than it should’ve been. The only reason why the video was needed was to confirm the sampled song actually existed.

    Losers.

    That shit is dope. Great sample. No, I didn’t know about it, and I’m a big fan of ATCQ. And anybody criticizing is just mad that they didn’t use an MPC to make the shit for their own artist before Bangladesh and Wayne. And nobody would give a fuck if you – meaning you commenters who seem to be so adamant in your hate – actually recorded your own version of this song. So you still lose, like always.

    Fuck! You dudes/hoes make me sick sometimes. But it’s all good, because you’re actually just being the bitches that your mothers and fathers bred you to be. And since you’ll never catch up to me, much less the people responsible for the *original* “A Millie” track, you don’t count… at.. all.

    Congratulations to Shondrae/Bangladesh. And congratulations to Lil’ Wayne. 2 Millie and counting.

    And fuck you hate mongers. It just makes no damn sense. But who am I to tell you what to do with your hatred. Do you.
