t.r.o.y.


o pete rock μιλάει στο waxpoetics για το sample που του χάρισε έναν από τους χιπ χοπ ύμνους των 90s:
do you remember finding the tom scott record with the horns you sampled for "they reminisce over you [t.r.o.y.]''?
large professor played the record for me at his house; that's when i first i heard it. i was in a new orleans record shop when i found it for myself. black sheep has used it for ''similak child'' but i went more into the record; they just sampled the beginning. by going into further, i found those horns! it made me cry, seriously.
why were you so moved?
it just reflected all sadness i was going through. troy was a close friend of ours and this is his tribute song. he was also heavy d's dancer and known throughout the community. we were all apalled when he died. i made that beat out of depression.

μιλάει για το today του tom scott [εδώ το ronson remix] και αυτή είναι η instrumental version του κλασικού single στο οποίο αναφέρεται: "they still play 't.r.o.y. in the clubs, and it makes my day when young cats come to me and tell me how much they love it".
