Frank Ocean Gets Some Jimi Hendrix
With Frank Ocean's "Crack Rock" in heavy rotation, we noticed Frank and other musicians have a jones for Jimi's drums.
Sampling is nothing new in hip-hop, and in light of the classic drum loop used on the new highly-acclaimed Frank Ocean album, Channel Orange, we’re droppin’ some street knowledge for all the young’uns out there. The sample is the classic “Little Miss Lover” off Jimi Hendrix’s mystical second studio album, Axis: Bold As Love, released in 1967. Here’s a few tracks that also sample the famous drums from the Jimi throwback.
JIMI HENDRIX “LITTLE MISS LOVER”
FRANK OCEAN “CRACK ROCK”
A TRIBE CALLED QUEST FEAT. LEADERS OF THE NEW SCHOOL “SCENARIO”
OASIS “FUCKING IN THE BUSHES”(SCENE FROM SNATCH)
