RnB Hip Hop Beat, Sample Flip, Story Rap

Common's classic Hip-Hop track, "I Used To Love Her", is still one of the best Hip-Hop tracks ever!

Here's my sample flip beat made from that famous George Benson sample.

In this sample flip beat, the actual sample slips are primarily highlighted in the verses. The choppy rearrangement of the guitar sample slices is intentional and goes well with the bounce in this laid-back beat. I added string instrumentation in the later parts of the beat for emphasis.

I wanted to keep some of the sample familiar, but I didn't want this to be just another re-ue of the sample the way it is in Common's track.

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.
