The Story

Here is a little background info about The Changing sample flip moody instrumental beat.


The Changing - Reason sample flip beat cookup instrumental mpd oxygen8 sample

This track contains a sample from George Benson's "The Changing World" - the sample Common used for "I Used to Love H.E.R.".


George Benson is a favorite of mine since I was a kid in Southeast, DC. My parents wold hav the radio on in the mornings while I prepared to go to school. I would hear George Benson singing and playing his guitar and doing his soulful "scatting" - so dope!

"On Broadway" (the extended live version) was my favorite song and "Masquerade" was a close second. I don't recall ever hearing "The Changing World" until I heard the sampled version on Common's classic Hip-Hop track "I Used To Love H.E.R."

I wanted to pay homage to George Benson and Common with a sample flip.
