After releasing 4 major projects 2011, the Hot Spitta is showing he still has a lot left in him for 2012. The one thing I like about Curren$y is that he chooses obscure instrumentals to rhyme over. A couple of the beats he chose for this project had me reminiscing about Hip-Hop’s golden era.

Words from Waajeed:

Each piece in this video series shows a journey of how Dilla’s music has touched some of my favorite DJ and Producers. How his manipulation of breaks from the past have given us some of the brightest moments to this day. I asked everyone to go into their own private record stashes and pick out their favorite Jay Dee samples. I’d personally like to thank everyone for taking time to share with me their joy for music.

My first webisode is with Boston’s own DJ Amir. Amir is no stranger to the breaks and Dilla himself – as they had worked together for many years. Amir has an huge history, deeply rooted in the now legendary breakbeat compilations with his partner in crime, Kon. Amir currently resides in the Spanish Harlem section of New York where we shot this first piece.
