Rubbing shoulders with Young Thug, Kanye West, Jorja Smith, Giggs and Skepta, Moodymann’s unmistakable tones can be heard on Drake’s More Life playlist which debuted last night via his Beats 1 radio show.
On Passionfruit, the third song on More Life, the Detroit legend tells a crowd, “Hold on, hold on, fuck that. Fuck that shit. Hold on, I got to start this mothafuckin’ record over again, wait a minute. Fuck that shit. Still on this mothafuckin’ record. I’ma play this mothafucka for y’all. Aye, y’all get some more drinks goin’ on, I’ll sound a whole lot better.”
A user on WhoSampled quickly identified the recording which Drake lifted the sample from. It’s taken from a 2010 set in Manchester. Jump to 37:39 on the mix below to hear it. Also listen to Passionfruit to hear how the sample was put to use on More Life. Also, Moodymann is not Drake’s Dad.
reading blogs that think the Moodymann sample in Drake’s album is Drake’s father 😂
