"OOOHHHHHH SNAP! I love that beat! Where is that sample from?"
"Unnnhhh...I don't know. Did you ask Dan?"


"Ayo, how many times did Pete Rock sample Nautilus?"

Sound familiar?

Chester P.

Lyrical hero of mine for some time now as you may well know. I have probably force fed you some Chester P at a few points in time if you are from North America. Well North London's finest has a serious skill with words.

This is a little 8 bars I found of his on the world wide web. Hope you are feeling it.

While we are in the UK people should see this clip too. K-Lash-Nek-Off from the Terra Firma crew killing bars over some thight beatbox by Faith FX. Big!
