Give credit where credit is due out here in the wild interwebs, as my man at The T.R.O.Y. spot spotlights the jazz and soul samples of mid- to late 90s Chicago hip-hop. (T.R.O.Y. stands for They Reminisce Over You, a 1992 effort by Pete Rock and CL Smooth that is among the greatest hip-hop songs ever made.)
Posted are almost 30 instrumentals done by Chicago production luminaries on a number of classic Chicago albums. Of the samples you can listen to on the page, I highly recommend All Natural's "50 Years." Something to vibe to this Saturday afternoon.
