Who Did The Better Flip? Dilla VS Madlib

Alright, the original sample is from LV Johnson's 1981 album "We Belong Together".  The name of the song is the classic "I Don't Really Care".  Here it is.

Uhhh...  My bad.  I got distracted by that album cover.  Lawdy.  Anyway, the late great Dilla and superproducer Madlib got their clutches on this track years ago and flipped it.  You be the judge.  Who did the better flip?

Dilla's Flip:  Airworks

Madlib's Flip: Strong Arm Steady feat. Planet Asia - Chitlins & Pepsi

THE WINNER:  Don't get me wrong.  I'm gonna be a fan of Dilla til the day I die, but Madlib got this one.  Airworks is dope, but it was more of a showcase of Dilla's dopeness.  The way Madlib flipped it, he made so that anyone can just jump on it and spit.  I mean, you can definitely flow on Airworks, but it just sounds better if somebody rhymed over Chitlins & Pepsi.  And that's especially what them boys up there did with that track.  Plus, it was just so smooth how Madlib pieced it together.  Gotta give this to Madlib.

The Mongo Slade EP

Aight, for the past 2 months I've been mad busy doing a few projects.  This is one of them.  I call this The Mongo Slade EP.  A while back I did this remix for Camp Lo's Luchini joint and it got a big response.  So I figured I do a small project based off of Camp Lo acapellas.  My type of beatmaking mixes so well with Camp Lo's style.  So it was a perfect idea.  But I needed a mascot.  I needed something or someone to create that buzz for the whole EP.  I thought about Bill Cosby in Let's Do It Again.  In the movie, his character disguised himself as this pimped out, larger than life type dude named Mongo Slade.  I thought it was hilarious.  It was a classic flick and it would be hype if this character of Mongo Slade represented my whole project.  The Mongo Slade EP.

If you didn't catch the previous post that sparked the idea, here is the video version of Pinball.

Here are two tracks from the EP.  Remember, it's all Camp Lo acapellas.

And here is the whole EP for download on Zippyshare. The Mongo Slade EP, ya'll. One.
