#recordbox: ‘reagan’ by killer mike

#showertune: ‘that sound’ by ohmega watts

good morning class

G-O-O-D  M-O-R-N-I-N-G  M-R  T-I-R-E-D

thank you. please take your seats. when i call your name please indicate whether you are “present” or “absent”.

today’s first lesson is #showertune and we will be revisiting a very important theme that we haven’t worked on for a while – hip hop.

some of you failed your hip hop paper last time out because you insisted on writing about grime, dancehall or UK garage, or because you indicated that Jay-Z, Eminem, The Game, 50 Cent or Lil Wayne was “the boss”. please do not make those kinds of basic errors this time round.

for your homework, i want you write two sides on the subject of: My Favourite Use of A Sample. you can write about whatever era you like, as long as you stick to artists/movements mentioned in the course handout. if you want to cover something not listed there, talk to me about it after class and i will adjudicate.

as for this lesson, i want to cover That Sound by Ohmega Watts
