Clover Hope / November 15, 2010

Dilated Peoples “This Way” (2004)
Album: Neighborhood Watch
Sample: Jimmie & Vella “Old Men”
With its factory-style whistles, piano and drum rhythm, this memorable Dilated Peoples groove is a chant-worthy workingman’s tune. It’s one of Kanye’s oft forgotten earlier beats.
