Sampled By Who?? Outlaw Blues Band vs Cypress Hill

Hello Hello!

So today’s update is going back to the original steez, and I’m coming with a serious tune! The Outlaw Blues Band hailed form California and this track appeared on their 1969 LP ‘Breaking In’ which was produced by Bob Thiele. They were part of a wide ranging blues revivalist scene that was going on back in those days, and thanks to this tune right here are still being revived today!

Outlaw Blues Band – Deep Gully

Then back in ’93 Muggs, B Real and Sen Dog aka Cypress Hill dropped this on us. I vividly remember getting the Black Sunday CD for Christmas in 93/94. Good Times! It’s still a fantastic LP and well worth a listen. I’ll stick up a few of the other tunes Muggs sampled over the weekend

Cypress Hil – When The Shit Goes Down

Flip forward 20 odd years, and possibly the greatest early nineties hip hop group Main Source (consisting of the Large Professor, Sir Scratch and K Cut) dropped this bomb on their seminal début LP Breaking Atoms. I think this came out originally in 1991. EDIT: An it definately doesn’t sample Deep Gully so who knows why I even posted it…
