“Love 2 Ball”
Artist: Freeway
Producer: Dillemma
Release Year: 2008
Song Sampled: “You Sure Love To Ball”
Sample Release Year: 1973
Sample Effect: The horns from Gaye’s “You Sure Love To Ball” are sampled and laced with hollow drums to create the backbone of Freeway’s “Love 2 Ball.” Gaye’s vocals are also lifted and redelivered with a different melody by a female vocalist, echoed by Freeway in the hook.
Why The Song Is Dope: While paying tribute to Gaye, Freeway cooked up a smooth record letting listeners know how he “Loves 2 Ball.” The third verse and outro are especially entertaining; Freezer is a master of the serious records, but it’s clear he wasn’t afraid to let loose and have fun with this one. —TL
