“Dealing”
Artist: Jay Electronica
Producer: N/A
Release Year: 2008
Song Sampled: “Sexual Healing”
Sample Release Year: 1982
Sample Effect: The lyrical sample of Marvin singing “you’re dealing” recurs throughout the track to provide the song with a catchy hook as well as its title.
Why The Song Is Dope: The enigmatic Jay Electronica always spits cryptic verses with a nuance that can border on infuriating. This track is no different as he manipulates the term “dealing” to mean both the act of selling drugs and struggling with life’s problems while neither passing judgment nor bestowing praise upon those who sling rock to alleviate their poverty. —MC
