My man Ant Valadez put me up on this cat DJ Iron Mike and his “Break Out The Sample” series for a variety of reasons:
1. Dude KNOWS his hip-hop samples.
2. Dude is enthusiastic as hell.
(and the real reason, at least in my opinion)
3. Dude is the white version of me. Not like “oh, he’s kinda like Abe.”
DUDE’S MANNERISMS AND GEEKING OUT TO EACH RECORD IS IDENTICAL TO HOW I GET WHEN I GET IN THE ZONE AND START WEARING THE FUNK FACE WHEN LISTENING TO ESPECIALLY ILL RECORDS.
Don’t believe me?
Ask Ms. Cecilia.
And this is why I had to share DJ Iron Mike’s greatness with you.
I went ahead and watched all 11 episodes of this series, and I’ve now got my YouTube set to download all his future videos.
I’m hoping to get Iron Mike on the show, but I’m not sure. I don’t know if the studio can contain that much awesomeness in one room at the same time.
Peep a couple of dude’s episodes below (my favorite part is when he goes super wild for a particularly dope sample)…
