"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

Reggie Wright: The instances that I know of that he cooperated with the government [were] when he tried to turn in his [former] attorney David Kenner to get a lighter sentence. He wanted me to contact the U.S. attorney, then the U.S. attorney told me to have [Suge's new] attorney contact me. When I contacted his attorney, he told me he wasn’t representing [Suge] if he’s going to do any type of snitching. So that’s where it dies down there... He always tries to portray that he’s not a rat, but he’s always telling. He just used other people to work as operatives to get people incarcerated.
